  • This zoo has a large variety of animals and a knowledgeable staff. They are in the process of expanding so I hope to make it back someday to experience the new exhibits.

  • Beautiful, good layout, and getting better! We did the reservation of tickets online with the 9am slot. Not sure if we had to do that, but we did. I am military so with that discount we paid $47.50 for 2 adults and 3 kids. We have been to tons of museums, and the is cheap!! We were the first in line and the check in was simple. They scanned my ticket on my phone and my daughter was the first one in!!! There is an large map and you can scan a QR code to follow on the website. I really think they could add more info in the site. I love seeing how old an animal is, what is weighs, what it eats, etc. they could add unlimited info, but there really is t much to read :-( The exhibits were clean and large for the animals. We were early and kind of disappointed that some enclosures were still being cleaned so the animals weren’t out. Specifically the Giraffes. There were humans in the enclosures so the animals weren’t. That kind of sucked. The penguin exhibit was amazing. I have never seen one as nice as it. This is a must visit zoo!!!
  • The zoo was awesome!! We had so much fun for Mother's day!! We saw so many beautiful animals. Take a blanket and food. So you can enjoy a nice lunch on the grass. Thank you!!
