The animals are in large cages and they appear to be happy. Make sure you visit the entire park and stay for sunset as you can hear the lions roar, which is quite spectacular.

Slightly over priced but it takes a lot of money to run a zoo. It’s an all day event. Enjoyed feeding the giraffe and the sting ray. Yes the rides are an extra charge. Had fun

Really enjoyed seeing the different type of animals. They a petting zoo, feeding the parrots and the giraffes. The Sea Lion show was disappointing.

We loved this zoo! It's actually fairly large and very easy to walk around. We had twin 22 month olds who managed to stay awake the entire 5.5 hours we were here. The only food really available was at the restaurant but that wasn't horrible...More
