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.
