One word: awesome! They have every animal you'd expect to see at a MN zoo. Giraffes, lions, tigers, bears, monkeys... they had a chair lift over the hippos and cheetahs which was cool. Their Imax movie about dinosaurs could be skipped, wasnt that good. And the food is expensive but what do you expect at a zoo. Their exhibits are just plain neat.

From the rainforest to the aquarium, this is by far one of the best zoos in the country. The variety and size are overwhelming.

Plan to spend an entire day here. Prices for drinks and food are high as is usual at these attractions, so bring your own water.

Wear layers, Nebraska mornings are cool, afternoons quite hot.
