Our second time here. My kids and I love it. Even with a large crowd there is plenty of space/time to see the kangaroos up close and personal. Also has birds, snakes, farm animals, wolves, rabbit, lemurs.

Perfect for our boys, 7 and 8. We fed kangaroos and emus. We got up close with a variety of animals. It is small, so you can do this in an afternoon. Our only issue was with the cave tour. The cave was nice, but...More

We visited on a beautiful day and got to experience some cool things. Being able to walk around with and petting kangaroo is not something you can do just anywhere! The cave tour is worth doing also.

I've been twice and spent about 2 hours both times. It really depends on you. You can spend all day there, doesn't cost extra, once you pay you can also leave and come back. We left and ate and came back for the cave tour.

$28.50 adults $15.50 kids Groupon provides a good discount. Full price is definitely way overpriced.
