With kids, I’ve been to a lot of zoos. This was one of the most expensive entrance charges. We enjoyed the 4D movie, but the train ride was a bit disappointing. There was good info, but limited visibility of the animals. Staff were were wonderful. The kids loved the camel rides.

Favorite thing was the giraffes. Everything is extra, so be prepared for that. Parking and pickup were good.

I went I trully dont recomend visit it during the Hot season. You will almoust melt for sure. This is Desert enviroment, dont forget. The Zoo is not a big area, but you can enjoy the animals that lives there. If you are in the area, go there and enjoy the place.

We love animals and it’s always nice to see a zoo that has a lot of space for them. They had a good selection of animals, provided lots of shade for us humans throughout the park, lots of parking, and food and beverage choices throughout. The only space that was a little sad were the lions.

This zoo is really nicely done. The enclosures and the setting for the animals was perfect. The area was really clean and maintained well.
