“Elephants!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Our family loved the elephant experience! The design of the enclosures and surrounding areas was beautiful, however, we found the constant reminders that Toyota sponsored the elephant area a bit annoying (the zookeepers announce it, and the Toyota symbol is everywhere in this area of the zoo). Our family spent about 5 hours at the zoo and enjoyed it immensely.

“Very small”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Small zoo, took me 2 hours too see it all. The elefant show or Toyota experience lasted 5 minutes and they didn´t do anything special. Great for small children and school trips but not worthy to spend an afternoon while in town if you don't have children. It was also a hot day and animals like polar bears and penguins were outside with no climatized environment. All animal seemed stressed (non stopping pacing around small cages) and also not comfortable with the warm weather.

“Good”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Due to very hot weather we were not able to enjoy the trip, Zoo was very clean and large area. Thousands of visitors. Entry fee is very expensive. After paying entry fee, rides were still charged and they were expensive.
