Second time we've been to this zoo! Yes it's crowded, but it is such a wonderful zoo that it's hours of fun! Be sure to buy a pass/wristband that let's you ride all of the attractions inside the zoo. It gives your kids a break from walking and they do enjoy a different view, as we did as well. Would definitely return!

We went to the zoo on a Friday around 9 am. It was cloudy, misty and a little chilly. This was a great time & weather related day to go out - the animals seemed more active and easy for on premise parking that is free. We parked at the North entrance & at this time not many people. The staff was great as well - everyone we encountered had smiles.

Our favorites - the silverback gorillas and the tiger. These animals were easy to see. The gorillas were active and entertaining.

The rhino was kind of hard to see and we had to walk a ways and search for the zebras. The male lion was hard to see from the ground. However, we did see it really fast from the train.

The train is a fun way to see the animals and rest. It’s maybe 20 minutes, I’m guessing.

I gave this four instead of five primarily because: some animals were really hard to see, they must have had bears at one time and removed them and the Alaskan part was just a small, water type play area.

This zoo offers many animals to view and learn about from reptiles to large cats. Great, family thing to do. Side, note, the aquarium is huge and worthwhile to see!
