It was great seeing the different animals and learning a lot about snakes. Spending time at the park was great since we also took a boat cruise.

Apr 24: After the dam visit, came to this place. Actually, not very interested in the park but wanted to do the boat cruise. We entered at 12 pm and there was a show at the arena.

A great visit for the whole family and people of all ages. The establishment is well kept and the animals are in great condition. There is a wide variety of animals from all over the world to view and the live seal feeding show is great fun for the kids. A must do

Fulfilling zoo experience, so many different species of animals to view. They also have regular shows with seals. There's a both ride on the Dam, which departs several times during the day, but at an additional fee.
