The day we went to the zoo just happened to be buy one get one Sunday so it was super economical. Not sure how often that special is offered. We arrived at the zoo around 3:30 and it seemed all the animals were just waking from there afternoon naps and were ready to entertain there guests! We had a great time watching the apes, monkeys, and gorillas as they were all very active. Also loved the peacocks that hang out around the "grass" area. At this time of day the crowds were thinning and it was very easy to get around. I would recommend this zoo if you have a couple extra hours in town with or without kids - definitely worth it.
