My wife and I stopped at the zoo on our way through Madison, to check it out. Even though it was free admission, by the time we left we felt that we had been over charged. The gates open at 9:00 AM I believe, but none of the centers open until 10:00 AM. Nor do the information booths. I asked for a map at the information booth inside the gate, and was told that they didn't have any, that they were being reprinted.
Even though the zoo was a disappointment, we decide to eat there anyway. This was ot a good choice either. The price wasn't bad, but the quality, even for consession stand food was very poor. I would not recommend this zoo to anyone unless. it was to tell them to save the trip.
