I took 4 grandkids this summer and they loved it. It is an awesome zoo. It is very clean. There is enough space that you don't feel like you are in a herd of elephants. The only thing that I don't like is that the food and drinks are expensive. The rides are not badly priced. You can spend 2hrs or 5 hrs. depending on your time frame. I would allow at least 2 hrs. We will be going back again next year. They do have a Halloween trick or treat walk and that is fun also. Kids all dressup and walk to station and they are given treats. Enjoy.
