Beautiful Zo, and very clean. The animals were taken care of, and the exhibits were very educational. The shops have great gifts and the animals were very active.

The price for an all inclusive ticket is $23.50. This includes admission to the zoo AND rainforest, rides on the train in the Australian exhibit, the 4-D movies and a zoo key with a lanyard. Hope this helps.

It doesn't go all the way around the zoo, but it does take to you to the cats & primates. There is an extra charge for the train. When I went no one checked our tickets.
