Overall, my 5 yr old had a great time at the zoo. We went on a Wednesday, which there is cheaper admission during the week, and I had a coupon so admission was reasonable. Parking was free. Once in the park, you have to take a tram to the actual exhibits, which is about a 10 minute wait. The Africa exhibits were really good. The giraffes were terrific. Unfortunately the penguin exhibit was closed for cleaning, which really disappointed my son, who just loves penguins. The children's side of the zoo was ok. Nothing spectacular. He had fun petting the goats. My biggest complaint is that once you are in the children's section, you HAVE to go through the WHOLE side to get back out to get to a bathroom. This didn't work out so well in our favor. I understand they are under construction, but an emergency porta-potty would have been great somewhere along the way. As for eating there, we packed our own lunch because they do not have much in the line of food... unless you want to pay $4 for a dixie-cup sized snowcone.
