this was a perfect little zoo. It took us about 2 hours to see the entire zoo. it had nice animals (zebras, monkeys, giraffes, meerkats, lions, tiger, elephant) and you felt close enough to actually see them. would highly recommend!

Kids will enjoy it. Staff informed us we might not see all animals since we arrived late and animals were being put up. No problem with that though. Still fun.

While many improvements have been made its still very average at best. Kind of boring to be perfectly honest. The sea lion show was a joke. It lasted around 15 min and the entire time they just had somebody speaking about the animals, we saw one sea lion for all of 2 min.

Clean place, it's grown and expanded a lot, there were many people. If you're into photography, there are great opportunities here to shoot close up. The gift shop is great. It would be nice if they opened up an aquarium kind of restaurant like the one in Albuquerque. It would really attract a lot of people. It has consistently improved over the years
