In August, each year, The N.E.W. Zoo has their biggest fund raiser: Feast with the Beast. Tables are set up throughout the zoo; over 40 vendors from area businesses offer ample samples of food/drink sold at restaurants, breweries, etc. This year there was beer, wine, ribs, ice cream cones, shrimp, mac 'n cheese, sirloin tips, wings, etc. It is kind of pricey, $30 each, even for kids. Very few kids were there. There is only one station with non-alcoholic beverages available. We had to buy Gatorade for the child in our group because he was "dying of thirst."

We got there an hour early because the line to get in at 6 pm is huge. It's amazing how quickly they get everyone in there though. The stations close to the entrance back up quickly. I'd suggest going deep into the zoo first to get to the stations there so you don't spend so much time waiting in a line. By 7:30, some stations were out of food, despite the event going to 8 pm.

Truthfully, I had gotten something to eat at less than half of the stations and was so full at that point, that I really didn't care that some places had run out of food. One station offered coupons for a free donut, because they had run out.

There were a great variety of exhibits with many animals. The bathrooms were clean, the animals seemed happy. The employees and guests were all happy. Feeding the giraffes was the highlight for all of us (ages 2 to 50).

The zoo has all your basic zoo animals. The day we went most of them were nowhere to be seen. However we did get to hand feed giraffes! It makes the whole thing worth the money!!

We bought a membership this year and I'm glad we did. We make the drive to appleton about once a week and stopping at the new zoo is perfect for the kids to stretch their legs. A favorite is the petting zoo.

A very nice zoo for its size that is well maintained and seems to be well sponsored. It is a good half hour north but worth the time. I didn't see any elephants (maybe Bob Barker did what he did to the Toronto Zoo and lobbied & got them sent to California), rhinos or kimono dragons but a lot of other animals including ones native and not. You can get close enough to the animals and they seem to have shows to present them to kids. A good assortment of things to eat in the center of the park in a building.
