This zoo was amazing. My 6 year old had so much fun. The zoo is huge and the prices were good as well. We are totally going back.

We are so lucky to have this world-class zoo in our town. It is so well laid-out, maintained, and presented. My favorite stop is always the primates area (inside and outside), but the lions are a close second, especially when there are new lion cubs!
