We spent the day at the zoo on a very cold day. When we arrived at the polar bear exhibit, we didn’t want to leave. It’s worth the price of admission.

We didn't get a reserved area as they were all booked. Had lots of fun. I'll admit the new entrance still throws off my orientation when I'm in there. The kids really enjoyed the butterflies

If you arrive as it opens, I would think about 2 hours. There’s an open minibus that can be accessed & the fellow that drives it is very helpful!
