Seriously one of the best zoos I’ve ever visited. The layout is super easy to follow. All of the animals are so close, and the sting ray area was the best! They even had a dinosaur exhibit that my son obsessed over!

Loved the animal habitats, so beautiful. Plenty of shade and nice places to rest. So much for kids to do - many animal encounters and other interactive experiences. Friendly, professional staff. Great!

A lot of fun. Make sure to purchase full experience tickets, it definitely worth it!! We missed the shows except the 4D theater which was a lot of fun, but will plan to catch the others next time.

We got there right at 9, and parked basically at the door. We were there for 5 hours, and we still didn’t see everything!

I felt so bad for many of the animals. The enclosures are small and many of the animals had no mate with them. There were way too many animals just pacing back and forth due to zoochosis. It was also next to impossible to get...More

This zoo had plenty of engaged animals, activities, bathrooms, eateries, and shops. We had a great time. We took a deliberate path around the zoo and were thorough in exploring each exhibit. It took about five hours. The animals were great. We enjoyed feeding the...More

I would consider a family pass for the whole summer if they want to see it all. Check the zoo website for rates.

There is a discount. The price would be $17.95 and you need some sort of military identification.
