  • My group and I had a really great time. We enjoyed the cave tour and the guide Chris was really funny and knowledgeable. We liked Chelsea‚Äôs pet show, seeing the laughing kookaburra, tiny alligator, and snake. The gift shop had a wide variety of different fudges and from the samples I tried, they were all delicious. My favorite part however was the kangaroos. They were really sociable and ate right out of my hand. I will be back and definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys animals or caves. Thanks!
  • The general admission includes a cave tour, which we didn't expect much. But we were pleasantly surprised by the many formations we could see in the short cave tour. The mammoth cave was big, but only small portion of the cave tour has formations. This small cave was just as impressive as the mammoth cave if not more. We also enjoyed seeing some animals that we don't usually see in the zoo, such as kangaroos, lemurs, sloth and baby porcupine.
