“Disappointing ”
Review of Sunset Zoo

Sunset Zoo
Ranked #4 of 28 things to do in Manhattan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2017 via mobile

We expected this to be a small zoo, but we didn't expect for it to be quite as small as it is. We took my toddler on a weekday afternoon with only two hours until closing. Turns out we only needed 45 minutes, and that included getting food at the snack bar and sitting down to eat. Everything just seemed a little run down and sad. As someone who is mildly afraid of birds, it wasn't too much fun having so many peacocks just roaming around either. On the positive side, it was only $5/adult to get in. There are a lot of zoos in this part of Kansas; the next time we'll spend a little more money and time driving to go someplace a bit nicer.

Went here for the afternoon with friends and it was more than I expected! Exhibits had all the creatures necessary to keep our group entertained. I loved how the peacocks roamed freely calling to each other.

We love coming to this zoo so much that we bought memberships for our family and come about once a week. A quiet, small zoo, it nevertheless has chimpanzees (including a baby!), tigers, Amur leopard, and many other animals you would expect in much larger zoos. Almost never crowded except for the occasional theme weekend like Halloween which are a blast. Highly recommend the visit if you are in town!

The zoo is okay. It's nothing exciting. No elephants or giraffes (my daughters 2 favorites) It was neat to walk around though, pretty inexpensive.

The animals are spread out that you get bored in between walking to each. Trash laying around, and akward set up hard to push a stroller or wagon through the paths. Most of the time the animals arent even put or they are asleep.
