“I love this zoo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

The Staten Island Zoo is a small zoo, but charming with a wide variety of animals. The staff is really nice and their Halloween event, Spooktacular, is wonderful.This zoo is perfect for someone who wants to spend a few hours at a wonderful place...it is not big enough to make it exhausting for a small child, but large enough that it is a great place to go on a nice day.

“Okay really? This is an unexpected cute place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

An unexpected surprise in Staten Island, seems like lots of group trips but everyone has a good time and it is worth a few hours of your day. Get outside and enjoy.
