We took our grandsons, ages 6 and 3 and we all enjoyed it. It only takes about an hour, but if you add in the ropes course it will take longer. Our grandsons each did a ropes course, one high and one low, and had a fun time.

I also liked that most the animals were different from what you would normally see at a zoo. The kids also really enjoyed the park area. I will definitely... More

While we went in hopes to see the leopard, it was still in quarantine. We were pleasantly surprised by the animals there though. There's a sloth named Mo, but as sloths go, he slept the whole time we were there. The lemurs, huge tortoise and other animals make it worth the visit. A ropes course looks fun for kids of... More
