The new elephant enclosure is wonderful. We love visiting the Zoo Lights every year, but the line for the train ride is often so long we are unable to go on it. We still have not been on it since the route changed :(

A well thought out zoo, lots of great walkways with plenty to see and keep interest. Probably the best elephant enclosure outside of a safari park! Well worth a visit

One of the largest zoos that I have seen in US, the entry fee is nominal in comparison to other Zoo's like San Diego. Lots of animals and would need lot of walking to cover all. Its a nice spot for family picnic

These animals have become domesticated pets, they will be harmed by a concert as much as your Dog or Cat would be harmed if you watched the Harry Potter collection with your sound bar on higher volume. 🤷🏻‍♂️👍🏽
