Plenty of animals to see. Rides and shows could be seen without long lines. The kids are entertained without it costing Mom n Dad an arm/leg.

Always have a great time in this theme park. Different rides for every style, good for kids of every age and price is still reasonable compare to orlando parks. The animals are always fun to go and visit with the kids

We do not allow contact with our baby animals for the safety of our animals. We do offer feedings of our lorikeets and kangaroos for an additional charge.
