Overall , my experience was good. The animals in the trolley ride were very friendly. It was nice to be so close to all the different species. Wish the trolley ride was longer.

If you are going, we suggest getting there when it opens so that the animals will be really hungry. We spent 3 hours there and that was perfect. The food we ate for lunch was excellent!

The guided tour was great! We had a fun day as a family. 2.5 hours was a perfect amount of time. The staff were all very friendly and uninformative.

Thank you for the great review. The Small Animal Adventure attendant sees to all the areas up on the hill, so that might explain the absence there. Glad that overall it was a positive experience. Thank you for the review and for choosing us.
