Very nice zoo, I went on a cool and wet day, some of the animals didn't want to come out and play. Overall was a good way to spend a day outside.

I asked people beforehand which was better: Dallas or Fort Worth? And the general consensus was Dallas is bigger but Fort Worth is better so we went with Fort Worth. It is on the smaller side but it is a great zoo and very well...More

Sorry I did not do an overnight adventure. Did not know there was one, missed that one. I'm sure it will be amazing & well worth your time because the rest of the zoo is amazing. Good luck!
