This is a great zoo, we especially loved the dessert dome, the jungle exhibit and the aquarium. We rode the sky glider and the train and enjoyed those too. Food options were nothing special but what you would expect.

This zoo is amazing we have been to many different zoos and this one quickly became our favorite. Be sure to get there when it opens and stay till it closes and that still won’t be enough time!!

Two good questions. We purchased our tickets and actually just flashed them at the gate. As to time and date, I am not sure and you would have to verify on their website or call. You will love the visit and the zoo... More
