The great plains zoo has become a great place to go! I have been coming here for almost 25 years and I can tell you my latest visit there was the best buy a mile! They have added so many great attractions and animals. And the best part was that you could actually see all of the animals. We've all been to Zoos where you can't see anything because the animals are all sleeping somewhere. Definitely not the case here. It's clean and convenient and there was plenty for kids to do including the petting zoo and a really nice carousel sponsored by the Sanford family. I would highly recommend this sue for any one of any age.
Haven't been to this zoo since I was little, but we brought my almost 2 year old niece here and were impressed. It's the perfect size that it's not overwhelming, but they have many animals to see. It's a nice layout and well taken care of. Staff were all friendly. Our niece enjoyed the carousel, petting zoo, playground, bear and bird exhibits the most. We will be back.
