  • One of the best zoos we've been to in the US! our young toddler loves animals and zoo's and aquariums. Been to several around the US on trips, and this one was one of the best, if not the best, so...

  • Absolutely better than the zoo that exists where I come from. Though the heat become too much after walking for 2 something hours in it.

  • Good zoo. I really enjoyed how it's set up. We went during a cold day so there was some things we didn't get to see but it was nice having the dinosaur's out around the zoo. Good variety of animals. Also my kids got to ride on a camel which was pretty fun for them. A bit pricey but they enjoyed it so I'm a happy parent.
  • I really enjoyed visiting this zoo. There are so many uniquely different animals. The animal exhibits were well taken care. The animals were very active. There were many different activities for children. Patrons could feed various animals for a fee. The parking lot is smaller and finding a parking spot can be difficult. Overall, I would highly suggest taking your family.
