Me, my friend, and her 4 year old son visited here recently; my first time as an adult. It was a lot of fun! I personally enjoy any and all of the animal exhibits. But, the interactive machine and devices were more fun for her son. So, there's something for everyone, I imagine. A fun, educational outing, especially for those with children in tow. All the staff seemed happy to help and good with children, too.
My 12 yr old and I visited yesterday and had a blast! We saw the butterfly habitat, touched stingrays, enjoyed the tornado chamber, loved Seymor (giant tortoise) and the electric eel was awesome. Thanks for letting us watch the eel eat - it was electrifying! The summer laser show was wonderful! A fantastic place for kids and adults alike. And not expensive.
