Well this place strange. We expected more of an agrication place and it is a 60's hold over. Dark rooms, empty shelves, only saw one employee the whole time. We did not bother with the zoo or aquarium. I cannot recommend it at all.

We were told about this place last year. After visiting with my 4 yr old, we went again this year. They have food for the animals that you buy for a very small cost. You can also play miniature golf there for extra. The zoo...More
