The wildlife park was amazing! Mark at the log flume ride was absolutely fantastic!!! The granddaughter loved feeding the animals. It was not busy at all so we were able to see everything. The only drawback was the cost of everything. It would be great...More

We decided to visit the park when it first open 9am, try to take advantage of the cooler weather. It was up close encounters with the animals, all employees were friendly as well. But it’s hard to walk hours around the park in the heat!...More

This has been one of my favorite zoos since its beginning. You can get very close to the animals and interact with Lories, giraffes, kangaroos and observe many animals very closely. There is something for everyone.

My visit was during the week, and there were many school children on field trip but not overwhelming. The cost is rather high, but go to their website and get a coupon discount. I was amazed by the openness of the zoo and aquarium. One...More

The zoo is ok. It is more of a sanctuary than a zoo. They have a lot of birds and monkeys with a few other animals to round out the trip. It is on the expensive side for what it is, so look for a...More

There was a fairly good mix of animals and a good opportunity to see many of them up pretty close. However, it really felt like they were trying to squeeze every drop of money out of you. It was a fairly hefty $100ish entry for...More

they don't have high fences at most of the animal enclosures so you can really see them and get great photos. You can feed the giraffes all day long with your hands! I did it at least 3 times. Best zoo day ever!

I realize that taking care of exotic animals is a costly endeavor. This park in tries to do what it can with limited resources. Fees are higher because, even on a beautiful Saturday, there was almost no one there. If you like birds, this is...More

They do have wheelchairs available, however they do not look like they are in the best shape. All the paths are crushed gravel and that also makes if very difficult to push around a wheelchair for any length of time. If you... More
