My family had a great experience here. The animals all appear to be very well cared for and the staff was knowledgeable. The animal presentations were fun to watch and the way the animals interacted with the staff demonstrates a high degree of trust for the type of wild animals they house. I was quite impressed.
Great fun place for children and adults. The animals are very cool and exotic! I can't wait to try the indoor animal shows Saturday and Sunday only. My kids and I will have a lot of fun and learn a lot as well! I recommend anyone with children to go visit them!!!
