may be one of the finest zoos in usa. probably cannot see entire exhibits in one visit. ask to watch feeding at acuarium, they allowed my family to do so, might take a little coaxing, childs school project etc. its worth a try.

Our last visit was 10 years ago and boy has it changed (in lots of good ways). It’s laid out in a circular fashion so most of it is down hill. The aquarium is world class, with a walkthrough feature that I haven’t seen any...More

Although billed a restaurant, the food and service are no better than the various food stands around the zoo. It is cool and comfortable with a nice overlook into the jungle exhibit, but the food was mediocre and over priced.

You know, I really do not know. I have not noticed any charging stations, but I also was not looking for any. Sorry that I can’t help very much with this question.

I don't have the answer to this question. We were there in the fall, from opening to closing at 5 and saw no feedings. Check with their site or call. Sorry
