We were unable to spend a lot of time at the zoo, but it was still worth going. We got the train ride package and used it a few times. The best way to see the zoo, however, is on foot, as the train does not get close enough to the animals. What is strange about the train service is... More

The monkey exhibit was awesome. They are friendly and wanted to visit with us. The polar bear performed for us. The leopard either loved my kids or wanted to eat them but either way, he was cool. And we fed giraffes on the safari ride. Very nice!

It was an excellent trip here. Loved everything about it. My kids had a blast. We did the safari ride and it was so cool. We got to feed the giraffes and got to see so many new animals. The monos (monkeys) exhibit was an open exhibit. We didn't get to do everything cause it's so big. We will be... More

The best thing to do is get a diamond package though it's most expensive among all options you can actually cover everything and cover in 6 hours in a relaxed manner. The highlights were the non fenced open areas and the view of animals from very close proximity., Penguins are an added delight.. on the downside, all the rides ,... More

This zoo really isn't too bad. We bought the unlimited entry Diamond package which was really too much. The regular diamond would've worked fine and is 100 p cheaper. Eat before you go and get some coffee cause the food and drinks inside are not good. Do the safari, train and sky zoo.

The zoo is very nice, there are lots of different species, it is always very clean, you can feel a nice environment. It is big and have lots of things to do such as an aquarium, safari, feed birds, some type of cable car, etc. However there is one thing I did not like at all, the bathrooms do not... More

We have visited zoos in Mexico and the US and this the best we have been to. You can spend the whole day there or try a quick visit, though if you want to see all the animals, amenities and take a ride in the train, the safari and the cable car, it will take at least 4 - 5... More
