Very nice zoo to take the family. We got to see a new baby orangutan who was extremely adorable. Apparently they have a new baby giraffe as well but we didn't make it to the exhibit. Bathrooms are very clean too. Highly recommend!

Our biggest gripe about the zoo is that the signage is AWFUL. The map is barely helpful. The zoo seems to expect that you know your way around. We are from Columbus, home of a world-class zoo so we may be spoiled by that. When...More

It's a very fun and educational place for all ages. It's a lots of walking, but they have a train and also its very handicap friendly. They have a variety of place to eat, good ice cream and you can feed some of the animals.

This Zoo is wonderful! Lots of exhibits full of information. The animals appear to have plenty of space to live and play. The exhibits and grounds are obviously well cared for. Wear good shoes - expect a lot of walking. Limited team service between park...More

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.
