We bought a membership and used it weekly for the past year. This is one of the few gems in Wichita and certainly deserves support. The new elephant exhibit is very spacious and makes you eagerly anticipate updates to their other exhibits. Keep up the good work.

We went to the Zoo to check out the New Elephant area. The Zoo has a great selection of animals from farm animals to exotic birds.

We purchase a membership every year and we buy the family plus! It allows us to have the babysitter take the kids or even grandma or grandpa. We love being able to have picnic areas and lots of room to run!

Great way to spend the day, and the park is big enough it will take you most of the day to get threw it. The newest update is the elephant exhibit. I love the Gorillas.
