  • The coolest zoo I have been to so far. They have all sorts of animals and bus rides around the zoo. We went there a while back for Halloween and it was great. It was the best time I have had in my life. They have all of the animals in a well lit environment at night and it was boo at the zoo in 2013. Coolest zoo and I am coming back here
  • Needs cleaning and painting. And more animals.
