What a surprise! Taking the grands was perfect, but I would go again even without them. The first "must" is purchasing plenty of food to share among the wide variety of animals. Be sure to start by taking a leisurely stroll around the displays closest...More

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
