I absolutely loved this zoo!!! I have been to lots of zoos, but none better than this one. You could feed many of the animals including giraffes!!! You can also feed the birds in the aviary, my sons, 8 and 11, loved feeding the birds, they would land on your hand and were so friendly. They have animal feeding times... More

I have been to a lot of zoos and I must say that me and my 13 year old where not impressed and where actually bored and cut our visit short. This zoo might be exciting to younger children, if you don't pay extra to ride the train to see the animals you miss seeing the majority of animals at... More

We regularly go to this zoo and love each trip. The earlier you can get there yet better as feeding the birds is always fun.

This is a good medium sized zoo and the only one in the area. Many of the exhibits are open and well maintained. They have lions, tigers, giraffes, lowland gorillas, kangaroos, camels, and many other animals. Visitors can purchase cups of food to hand feed a variety of animals, including the giraffes. Additionally, seed sticks are for sale separately to... More

This is a cute little zoo - took me about an hour to walk through it, plus the train ride. The animals seem healthy and were pretty to look at, although I did feel a little sad at seeing the lions and tigers in such small cages. It's a little pricey for the size, as well. It cost me more... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this zoo. We even rode the train. Lots of animals. We were pleasantly surprised. I loved feeding the giraffe and loved the little bird enclosure where you can feed them too. Food was good also! This is a great zoo for all ages. All the people who worked there were extremely nice and helpful.

Expensive for a very small zoo. There are no water fountains and they charge for a cup of water. The feeding area is nice though for children.

I could not believe the small enclosures that the lions, tigers and alligator had. I felt so sick to my stomach as a I gasped at the size of their areas. I understand the zoo is privately owned. I'd never put another $1 into that place. I looked around for recycle containers after we had lunch. If they are there... More
