I was disturbed to see the tigers pacing in a small open enclosure with a very loud roller coaster roaring over their heads every minute. They clearly looked agitated and depressed. I would be too if I had to listen to that all day! Not good planning of the park, in my opinion. I will not be going back.

I love this place and so do the kids. Great value if you buy a season pass and there are some really fun rides. I love that you can buy a food pass and go often for nothing out of pocket.

I love this place. I have Season Tickets and have been there 4 or 5 times in the last few months and can't wait to get back there. The animals are great, the food is great and it's such a stressful park.

We live in San Joaquin county and this is the closest amusement park. We are new to the area, (from Hawaii) and wanted to do some fun activities with our grandkids, 6 & 7 years old. This probably was stretching the limit for them as far as a day trip goes, but they sure had fun. We enjoyed watching them... More

I love to visit the shows and animals in the zoo. Everyone else love the rides. Go early, you can wait a long time for rides.

The park is fun with fun and exciting rides. It also has shows aquarium and animal attractions. This is my favorite! Not too big either! Really good for younger aged kids!

Our family visited on Christmas Eve. We were there when the park opened at 11. There were so few people there that we could stay on some of the rides without having to line up again. There were lots of thrill rides and we rode them so many times and without lining up and waiting that our stomachs felt a... More

I wouldn't say the best but it's really good. The "Medusa" was a bit too overrated and overhyped but still, it was good. If you're going in weekends, stay ready for super long lines, other than that the place is awesome. All the ride operators were cool and cooperative. They were nice and were making sure we had fun.

This was a fun place to visit and take the kids. Can be very busy so try off season. What I enjoyed the most is that it did have great amusement park rides plus it had a mini zoo with shows. Get a schedule when you arrive and plan you day accordingly. The rides are fun but it was equally... More
