This place was amazing. There were so many animals to see. They have designed it very well so that you can see the enclosures and animals easily. Getting around with a pram was easy too. The manatees in particular were absolutely mesmerising. You can view...More

The place is not too big so its good for toddlers whose attention span is short and good for older kids to go 2 rounds. Very educational.

The Giant Panda Forest and Amazon River Quest boat ride are quite popular. We hope you had a good time at our other exhibits, such as the Squirrel Monkey Forest and Amazon Flooded Forest!

A great activity that you can do when it rains as it is all covered. A great way to learn and educate kids about rainforests, pandas, crocodiles and many different ecosystems. Boat ride was ok but not amazing. The additional ride on the boat (extra...More

I don't think it would be difficult as it was mainly boardwalk. That being said, I wasn't really taking notes about steps. For sure, don't do the boat rides as those are not wheelchair friendly. May I suggest a quick phone... More
