It's too expensive for what it is. There are many herbivores which are free to roam quite a lot of land. Lots of the deer, zebra, bison etc... Stay together which is what it's like in Africa, so I enjoyed that part. You get taken...More

The kids loved the wildlife zoo and they had a great day riding the tram and feeding the animals. From their perspective it was a perfect place. However, their maintenance could use a little boost to the program. Some areas seemed unkept and not as...More

Our grandchildren enjoyed seeing all the animals and the petting zoo area, so what else matters? Watch out for the deer in the picnic area...it has a taste for human food and is not interested in the food pellets you buy to feed the animals.

The kids had fun. I had fun with the kids, but not for the zoo to take any credit. I would have been very nice if the animals weren’t so malnourished. This place should be shut down. Staff is rude. I’ll begin by stating the...More

This place is a real zoo. No concrete, staged displays, nor pristine animals. These animals were closer to their natural habitat. It was raining lightly that day we were there, so yes, some of the animals were caked with mud. However, in the real world,...More
