Easy parking, excellent clean zoo! Nice enclosures for animals....looked like they were getting enrichment experiences. :) Could use more food service areas.
New baby elephant was exciting to see. Male Lion is amazing....got to experience a bit of a training session with him. Great handlers!

My friend had a free pass so I went with her and her kids. They had just added lions and they were very beautiful. Also there was a baby elephant, really cool to be able to say I have seen one. It is definatly a all day trip thoe. I just wanted to see animals fast but with all the people and there huge grounds it is easy to get kinda lost.. Also eat befour you come here as the food is expensive, you dont get much for your buck and the lines can take forever. Then the resturant there only had half the stuff they say they do on there menu..

School was out and loads of kids were having fun at the zoo. We really enjoyed the baby elephant. We took the light rail line and then the elevator that flew us up 400+ feet to the zoo.
