I liked everything about the zoo, everything was clean, their was no garbage laying around the zoo animals look nice and healthy, the only thing that I didn't like was that most of the customers(women and younger girls) dressed up like they was working a street corner, I mean this is a place where you bring your children and family we don't want to see lady parts hanging out everywhere, so maybe a dress code in the near future.... Wives keep your men at home lol!

We were there at 1:30 in July. It was very very hot and animals were not active. the price is affordable, the zoo is clean, and the staff is happy and helpful. I have been there before and kids were given a bird seed stick, but we didn't see that this time. The bird show was neat. The seal show and polar bears are my all time favorite. We would have been wise to see if the zoo posts a schedule of animal feedings and activities. I saw people with coolers so it might be nice to pack a lunch and take drinks if you were inclined.

This is the best zoo I have ever been to. The entrance fee is very reasonable and well worth it. You can tell that the animals are all taken very well care of. They are all healthy, active, and very interesting to watch. I have never been to a zoo where they have staff members actively patrolling in order to answer questions and help visitors. We were able to watch their young Silverback Gorilla have lunch while asking one of the zoo ambassadors question after question about him and the other primates we were viewing. The bird show is top notch and a must see if you visit the zoo. They are in the process of building a safari exhibit that looks like it will be pretty awesome. I can't wait to return and check it out!

The zoo is under serious construction and has little in the way of animals, but the World of Flight bird show is worth a trip to this zoo. It's interactive, informative, entertaining and fun. The show times are 11am and 1pm everyday with a third showtime at 3pm Friday - Sunday. It's a good opportunity to get up close and personal and get some good photographs of some amazing birds.
