We did the zoo whole we waited on our tour time at mega caverns, the zoo is located above the caverns so it was very convenient, it was a nice zoo, lots of construction going on but it was still a nice activity

The zoo has a splash park which is nice on days when it is in the mid-upper 90's, like the day we visited. They are doing alot of construction so some sections are closed and they have detours to take. Hopefully that will allow for...More

An outstanding zoo! Would definitely go back again. The elephant zoo keeper was very informative and friendly!! Loved our visit! The shady areas, misters, and refillable for a small fee souvenir cups were all things my husband said were good things.

There were quite a few animals that weren't out to view. The bears appeared to be very agitated. There is a lot of construction going on that had a bunch of routes blocked off.

Loved visiting this zoo! It was a fun zoo to visit. I loved the lay out and how close the animals were to the glass. I liked the butterfly area as well.
