Went there with my two young boys and wife. Great experience. Feeding deer out of the palm of your hand to bottle feeding a brown bear made this trip unforgettable.

The zoo is large with alot of different animals. It is expensive. It would be nice if they offered a deal for families of Four or more. The grandkids enjoyed it.
