I have a cottage in the Lakewood area and have gone past this zoo many a times since it opened but never stopped. My brother-in-law had been there and told us it was worth the trip. So my husband and I went there in August 2011. It was $6 per person. The zoo is not large but worth the $6. They have many large cats and at the time they had 8 baby tiger that were born from 2 of the tigers they recently aquired from a facility that could no longer care for them. I do agree that some of the enclosures seem a bit small for some of the tigers, however they seemed to be content. They appeared well fed and the enclosures were very clean. I've seen some blog posting online where one of the facilities in TX where some of the animals came from is angry with the way this zoo aquired the animals. It seems like a he said she said case. What is really important is these animals seem to be well cared for and that is really all that matters. I will be re-visiting this zoo the 2nd weekend in October to see the babies and they have a haunted zoo thing going on in October.
