Great collection of animals and decent ticket price. Not a big fan of paying for parking but it wasn't too much.

It was a Hot HOT day but it was a fun time. The animals were inside or hiding in the shade. And the train was under maintenance on a Saturday ?! That hurt.

We have a yearly membership and love going. There are lots of great animals and exhibits. We take lunch and find a spot to picnic. There is a nice shaded play area and my boys love the splash park.
