We stopped by here after doing something else in the area. It was a chilly day but still well worth it.
I haven’t been here in probably over 20 years.
My kids absolutely loved the animals and were almost running from one enclosure to the next. They did unfortunately tire faster than I’d hoped, so we will have to return again.
It was amazing actually seeing their faces as we saw many of the animals. My daughter was in awe of the giraffes and the Tiger. Amazing creatures. The way my kids were as they watched the animals was worth it. We took many pictures and my kids love going through them.
The train was not running which was too bad as my kids kept asking about it.
The place does have areas and the playground with picnic tables which are a bit run down. However you can see there is lots of upgrades occurring, and the animals seem well cared for and fed well (which we watched staff feed them at different enclosures). So you can see where money goes.
I used my BCAA for a discount and it wasn’t until I was leaving I realized we would get a discount as we are family pass members of science world. Not the fault of the facility, I think they even had a sign stating that.
We will be returning as my kids have asked already about returning.
We visited the gift shop, and my kids walked away like bandits with some snake things with rattles in their tails.
I feel there should have been more offered in the gift shop.
I recommend visiting this place as my kids loved it, you see animals, and you support places like this for the future.
