One of these best zoos we have went too. The merchandise was at a great price. Nothing was too expensive even food wise. I give this place a 10/10 and will recommend it to everyone!

We prefer to visit this zoo instead of zoo Atlanta because there is less traffic and less crowded. You can take your time and see all of the animals. My kids can't wait to go back!

The best part is buying nectar and feeding the birds. So worth it! Check the habits twice if you don't find the animals the first time. They might be hiding. The flamingos are fun to feed too, if they wake up.

Though it's clear this Zoo is old, the grounds are extremely well cared for and the animals appeared to be as well. The pirates on the train ride were extreme nightmare fuel, moreso for the adults than the kids. And I mean that in a...More
