I absolutely loved this zoo. Our family was there for a little over an hour when we looked at the map and realized we had only seen about 1/4 of what this place had to offer. Around ever corner there were more animals, more surprises....More

I have ranched and lived by the WW Zoo before it was built. We Have watched it grow bigger and better year after year. When they added Dillions to the venue it made it wonderful!!

We went to this zoo for the first time and were amazed at how BIG it was. We liked the lay of the land and the aquariums were fabulous.

First of all, bring cash! You may use a credit card to pay the admission fee, but all the rides and food inside the park are cash only. Look for coupons online or in local newspapers for $5 off the admission fee. With the coupon...More
