We were looking do do something outdoors, since the weather was so beautiful. I am really glad we went to the zoo. Yes, it is not a huge zoo, but what they have is absolutely top notch. We have a large zoo in my city,...More

I'm not a big fan of zoos, to be honest, but in this one animals are well feed and well handled, so I didn't feel bad during the visit.

This is an excellent place to visit particularly if you have young children, it was an ideal size for our 5yr old and she loved it. The Ice Age 4D experience is a nice little addition to take in too.

One of the highlights of our trip as we seemed to get really lucky with the animals. It’s a pretty compact zoo (to be expected) and the expectations weren’t that high. It’s great value and was included in our pass despite not being advertised as...More

We took two 14 year old boys on a chilly April morning. I did not purchase tickets in advance because I did not want the total zoo experience. When we arrived around 1130 there were only 3 families in line to buy tickets. We just...More

This Zoo does not have all of the animals from the Madagascar movie (they all left is maybe why?). That said this is a very nice zoo. The Sea Lions showboated for the crowd and actually made a lot of eye contact with people along...More
