Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

We doubted going cause the bad reviews we read about the zoo but glad we went! Worth every dollar spent. The adults and the 3 year old had an amazing time. Lots of animals to see great atmosphere and the kids loved the park. Defiantly take the train ride for the extra five dollars. Would recommend this place. Bring a camera :)

“Great day out!!!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

My third time being here and still I had a great time! You have so much fun that you end up spending the whole day there! The animals are very cute and interesting to look at! There are many good shows with the animals which are free to watch. There is also a train and a bicycle to ride around the zoo if you're too lazy to walk! You would be surprised at how much fun you can have at the zoo!

“Don't waste your money.”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Nothing worth seeing and to add insult to injury they nail for $6 parking and dismiss it as impark and nothing to do with them. Really a big disappointment.
