My grandson and I spent the day at Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo and had a great time. He enjoyed everything there. In particular he liked petting and feeding the Kangaroos. We rented a gold cart, which made our travels around the park much easier....More

I do like that they provide a military and student discount. They don't have the lizard house anymore or the cow milking demonstration. You do get to pet the kangaroos and emus. The bird attraction is cool, the kids will enjoy that. A bunch of...More

We enjoyed going to all of the animal exhibits at the zoo, especially the ones where you can feed them. We ate at the food shack and felt that the prices were reasonable and we enjoyed it. We would recommend renting the golf cart as...More

My son loves animals and I am always looking for new places to let him interact with animals. This was a very nice experience. I'm not sure it is worth the list price, but we scored a deal on Groupon. At most it's probably a...More

What a fun place! Animals from around the world to see, birds to talk to, and yes, kangaroos to feed and touch! The formations in the cave were amazing. Even the food at the Outback Cafe was good. Definitely a fun stop!

I've been twice and spent about 2 hours both times. It really depends on you. You can spend all day there, doesn't cost extra, once you pay you can also leave and come back. We left and ate and came back for the cave tour.

$28.50 adults $15.50 kids Groupon provides a good discount. Full price is definitely way overpriced.
