Such a great little zoo to bring the kids to. It is a much easier outing than either Point Defiance or Woodland Park and my kids seem just as happy to go here. I think it is best for families with young children, and hopefully your kids aren't expecting elephants or lions. They CAN see cougars, tigers, tons of parrots, macaws, interesting birds, lemur, etc. The best part is that they can purchase feed for some of the deer and other animals. That is an experience you can't get everywhere. Check it out! I had a birthday party there for one of my boys and it was a fabulous party for the 4 or 5 year old age. Spendy, but different and well-run.
