While we enjoyed our afternoon at the zoo, there were a lot of things that were "closed" which seemed odd since there were like 30 school buses in the parking lot. The place was packed with little ones. Clean and fun regardless of the closed...More

Has a lot to offer; their mission of conservation, preserving wildlife habitat, and saving endangered species is bold and admirable.

We visited while it was raining but still got to see lots of animals. Aquarium area was great and the dolphin dome was a fun experience. We even got to see the baby orangutan eating. Only downside was that we had to pay for parking...More

We went early and the weather was great. They had construction going on but they did a great job routing everyone to keep safe and not miss anything. Was disappointed with the dolphin show. It was 15 minutes and saw the old show which I...More

For Christmas, I bought my daughter, son-in-law and grandson a pass. Went on a chilly day in March with my grandson. What fun! The orangutan exhibit is inside and fascinating. Plan your visit to that exhibit on an early weekday morning. 2-year-old grandson loves the...More

We took our 3 yr old grandson and 9 month old granddaughter. It was just the right size to have enough attractions but not so much that it wore us (or the kids) out seeing it all. It also looks like they will be finished...More

Sure can. I'd allow 5-6 hours, eating an overpriced lunch in the middle, but I think you'd feel like you saw it all then. The Saturday we went I think the hours were 9-5, and we arrived around 10:30, saw the dolphin show and... More
