I cannot begin to say enough good things about this fantastic place. This is by far and away the best zoo experience because you are able to get so close to view the animals. Four of us went on a Saturday in December. We arrived...More

Hefty admission fees. There are too many amusement park rides and all are extra costs. Hope you can keep your children off the rides. If unable, it is a very expensive day. The Phoenix is more enjoyable. Too many animals are caged. Oh, I need...More
