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!
