Lots of animals and shows! Great food and gift shops. We went in July, hot hot! They have water misters everywhere. Even a water play park for the kids. They will have wet clothes. They handed out water bottles and cold water all day long...More

We visited for a morning and definitely could have stayed longer. My toddlers particularly enjoyed the splash pad, the carousel and the train (the latter two activities are an add-on to the ticket price, but I think they were only like $2). I really liked...More

This zoo was cheap, small and very cute. We only spent half the day here and was able to see everything and go to the shows. It made it an easy visit for my toddler. Loved it.

What a waste of money! We literally paid to walk in the park. Saw a giraffe and a zebra. Was a total bust and disappointment. I don't think you could pay me to go back. Total rip off! My kids were pretty bummed out. Wasn't...More

My wife and I spent about two hours and saw it all. We didn't stop for any of the shows, and it did rain on us a bit, so we hid out under cover for a few minutes. We also took time to eat lunch. We don't have kids we were... More
