  • Fun zoo experience. We parked in lot B and walked in. It was a nice tree covered path once inside which made the temperature a bit cooler than in the parking lot. I found the zoo to be a mix of older and newer buildings and exhibits. It is a big zoo and has some interesting architecture and architectural history. My kids had fun which is most important. We’ll consider the membership next year because it was more than $150 for the family without any food or souvenirs. Fortunately we packed a few sandwiches and the kids don’t have the stamina for an all day journey anyway so the couple times we have been have each been unique unlike some other famous zoos which you see everything in a day.
  • It was amazing experience. The habitat exhibits like the Congo Gorilla Forest and etc. offer astounding experiences and should not be missed. You can easily spend an entire day here. Great place to bring kids so they can explore a variety of different animal exhibitions and the wildlife! Highly recommend this place weather your a local or visiting from out of state, with or with out kids.
