Our children really enjoyed it. There was a train ride that took us around the park and we were also able to walk around at our own pace. The animals all look healthy and happy.

Hi Tim, Our rate for Family Day Pass (2 Adults, 4 Children) is $59.00. An Annual Pass for a Family of 6 (2 Adults, 4 Children) is $119.00. We apologize for not responding sooner!
How long does it take to go thru all the 'basic' part of the zoo w/o taking the train? Much appreciated for advises.
