Took my grandchildren and it was so much fun. The place seems to be dated from the 70's, the shop, the little rides, but that was the charm in this place. All that glitters isn't always the best. Take the kids, they will love it!!

Great day visit. Kids had a blast feeding the animals. Recommend every person get their own feed bag. Animals on the safari really love to be fed.

Took the kids and had a great time...far from the biggest and far from the fanciest, but I think it's the single most enjoyable time I've ever had at a zoo. Wear old clothes and mind the camel slobber.

We took our three year old granddaughter and didn't have any any expectations, but boy, were we thrilled. This was the most interaction we have ever had with"zoo" animals. Everyone was so friendly and we had an incredible time. Highly recommend!!!!
