  • I have been here a half a dozen times in the past 25 years. It has gotten better over the years. I enjoyed the place more an adult I think than a kid. I love the cat exhibits they have. Pretty good time for all ages.
  • We absolutely love this place. Winters are long but they keep it changing and keep it fresh. We are excited for the lions to be added. Some of the more interesting exhibits here are the Primates, African Safari, Asian Cats, and definitely the bears. If anyone is wondering whether or not the family membership is worth it??!? It is and helps the cause.
