“Surprisingly Fun Inexpensive Zoo”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Went to this zoo on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The cost to get in was $15 which is really not much these days. The zoo was very clean, staff was knowledgible and pleasant. Was suprised to see large animals including lions, and so many monkeys. My kids especially loved the butterfly kingdom. As for the amusement park, it's really for young children (under 10), and the games were inexpensive. Would we go back? Absolutely!

“Small zoo”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Went to this zoo as it was up the road from our hotel it was a small zoo we did the whole zoo pretty quick ... They had camel rides for 5 $ which was pretty cool that made the zoo my 9 month old daughter loved the deers they come right up to you :) I found the zoo to have a lot of birds! Still trying to decide if it was worth the 14 $ admission! It was an ok experience

This place is a tourist trap stuck in the 80's. the rides don't even to appear to be safe. The go kart rides are awful and the staff is way less then helpful.

“Good fun, inexpensive”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

My boyfriend and I were looking to get out of town and do a day trip and I figured why not go to Yorks Wild Animal Kingdom. I went once as a young child and decided to give it another whirl at the age of 30. We did the combo zoo/ride tickets for 21.75 each. Before leaving we read the reviews on trip advisor because we wanted to make sure that people did not report animal abuse. We were pleasantly surprised by the zoo and were thoroughly entertained by all the different animal exhibits for a good 2.5 hours. Overall the animal habitats were clean and the animals looked healthy and well fed. The tiger exhibit was a little disheartening, the tigers looked bored and under-stimulated but appeared healthy and well fed. Our favorite animals were the Gibbons, they were a riot to watch. The amusement park rides were pretty lame, but we did everything once and had fun doing it. There were no lines for the rides so kids can go over and over again if they want. Overall it was a great day and we will definitely be taking our nephews next summer.

“The kids loved the rides”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We had a great time and spent 6 hours here until they closed for the day. The rides were fun. The animal enclosures were smaller than what we are use to but all in all a fun thing to do once in your life time.
