Very commercial. I did not like the ambiance and the presentation of the animals. All is done to make you spend money but the environment of the animals is pathetic

I must admit, I visited this attraction mindful of public opinion being very negative towards keeping animals in captivity and also some bad reviews written by other visitors. There may have been a change in management or some positive action taken to improve this attraction,...More

Spend your time on other things, don't visit this "zoo". The animals are not treated well and some are ill.
