The kids (10 and 7) really wanted to visit this place, so I tagged along even though I was not too keen on it. We walked into the 'zoo' and it was so small we couldn't believe it. Then a very pleasant 'guide' walked up to us and gathered us together for our tour ... and all our initial shock started wearing off very quickly. I wish I could remember her name - she was new to the zoo and very knowledgeable and patient with the kids and adults. We spent almost 1.5 hours in there and when we initially walked through the door we thought we'd be done in about 10 mins.
We all learned things form our guide and the kids absolutely loved holding many of the bugs (although its still not my favourite thing to do) Several of the adults in our group held them as well.
The gift shop - which is also a waiting room when the zoo is full - has a lot (too many) hand-made / written signs about watching your kids and if you break it, you pay for it, and this is not a baby changing place, etc etc. It was really over the top. This is a kid-adventure - so I suggest the owners work with that and don't make the kids/parents adjust to suit your small space. Remove some of the stuff, put it higher, make a better waiting room - there are several different things you can do. But all the signs create an unfriendly environment and make you look runprofessional.
I highly recommend this as an adventure with children - and don't judge the zoo by your first impression! :)
