This zoo is small, but quite nice and modern. It is AZA accredited, so the animals are well cared for. The zoo would be a three-star Zoo simply because of the size, but the animal experiences were completely amazing. My girlfriend and I got to...More

We had a great time at this little zoo! We booked and animal encounter with the lemurs and we loved every second of it. Our guide, Sharon, was so kind and knowledgeable, and the lemurs were so entertaining. It was definitely worth the extra money!...More

Lots of fun with our 2 year old. It was cold outside, but most of the animals were out and we had a great time!

The walking path on here is good enough that you will have an appetite when you’re done, but won’t feel exhausted. They have indoor and outdoor animals; the armadillo looks like a wind up toy that won’t quit 😂.

There was 6 of us for the zoo and laser light show was 65.00 I thought it was a bit much. I hope the zoo animals eat well on that price. Our local zoo that is over 50 acres only cost 8.00 a person.
