This Zoo was amazing! I loved how open and spacious everything was. The animals truly had room to move and live. Yes some of them were hard to see, but animal welfare comes first here, and I appreciate that. We went on a Saturday and even though it was full when we came in, the crowd was never a problem. I would highly recommend the full experience. Jungle World and the Congo experiences were amazing! And you get souvenir cups which were free to refill on the day we were there. I would highly recommend this Zoo and I would say that you need to carve out a significant amount of time to explore. We will definitely be back when our son can walk a little better so he can experience it too.
Went with my family and friends this past weekend and had a great time ! So glad we have such an awesome place to being our children to to learn about animals and nature . There are so many fun things to do from zip lining to an animated dinosaur safari. Can't wait to go back during the holidays and see the zoo all decked out !
