  • Really great experience! My 3 year old enjoyed the 4D theater and petting the stingrays. I like that we are allowed to bring our own food as well. Very clean place and friendly staff. We purchased tickets online ahead of time too so we didn't have to wait.
  • It's a lovely zoo!! I wish I took pictures but I was just having fun in the moment!! The animals were adorable and hanging out pretty good in the Florida heat!! You can get so near the giraffes and they were even letting some of the kids feed them...super cute!!! Great day!!
