The zoo had a fun theme and atmosphere with lots of interactive exhibits. Ripley's Believe It Or Not had items on site while we were there which added a unique element. The Aquarium needs an update, but the zoo overall was a wonderful time! Check...More

This is one of the better Zoos we have been to. Clean and well kept. The animals seemed very content. A lot of exhibits and not a lot of distance between each. Everything you would expect from a good zoo.

There’s a bus/ Trolley but you have to pay to ride. I don’t remember how much because we just walked.
