This is a very well run Zoo, with fantastic exhibits. There are a lot of attractions and interaction with the animals and staff.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

The zoo was great...everything was mapped out perfectly. I saw all the exhibits, the path was perfect once we left one attraction the path/trail lead us to the next. The price was good...i purchased a soda that had refills for $1.00 and that was all I needed to get me thru the day, it was the best value on the park. I would definitely visit again whenever I'm in the area.

“Very nice!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

We visited with our daughter and granddaughter who live in Cincinnati. We had a good time and the weather was very nice. There were a lot of exhibits that were closed so we were kind of disappointed about that. Hopefully we can come another time and see more.

“Most uncaring people ever”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

I called the zoo the morning I was planning to take my 4 yr old granddaughter & asked specifically about bringing my 11 lb emotional support dog. Was told no problem, then after driving an hour to get there & paying for $9 parking, was turned away at the gate because my dog was not allowed to come in. Mind you, I have this dog because I have not been able to ride in a car or deal with crowds since my daughter was killed by a drunk driver. The supervisor was very rude & actually called security to the parking lot & make sure I left with my dog. I will never spend money at this zoo, even if I reach a point where I can travel without my dog
