The Rainforest is fantastic. A must see. This is a walking zoo, but does offer trams. I find the zoo relaxing and a place to take your time to explore the exhibits.

I know most of you like to visit zoos in the summer, but it's great to walk the ground when its' cold out too. You don't have to deal with a lot of people and the animals seem to be more active.

Like Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, this zoo is just right! Lots to see & do, great staff, nice landscaping & not too big or small. Great place to visit!

This was our second visit to this zoo, and we love it even more. The rainforest is a beautiful, relaxing, and a great way to learn about how impotant they are to the environment. Our second favorite part of the zoo is the wilderness trek....More

The price for an all inclusive ticket is $23.50. This includes admission to the zoo AND rainforest, rides on the train in the Australian exhibit, the 4-D movies and a zoo key with a lanyard. Hope this helps.

It doesn't go all the way around the zoo, but it does take to you to the cats & primates. There is an extra charge for the train. When I went no one checked our tickets.
