I visited the zoo in the spring and it was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon strolling around the zoo. I don't think I would want to visit in the middle of the summer humidity!

The prices as shown by Arthur G are correct and let me just say this will be the best money you ever spend for a zoo trip. When we went it was hot and there is plenty of shade for the animals and visitors. Enjoy.
