    I haven't been here in twenty years and had a great time even though it was very hot. There should be more resting places and the maps need to be way more detailed. We were confused many times and signage could be a little more frequent so you know you are on the right path. Definitely will be going back soon! ❤️

    I love zoos and I love this zoo, and of course, the monkeys, especially the Chimps, are my all time favorites. Their antics are hilarious and sometimes appalling, but always loads of laughs. I highly recommend this wonderful venue for old or young alike!!! Four thumbs up (if you count your big toes)!!!!

    We have had a zoo pass for about three years and LOVE going here. Well worth the money. We go at LEAST once a month all year long. I feel each time is a different experience. We see different animal behavior or check out different parts that we haven't seen in awhile. The staff are always engaging and answer all my questions. I feel the animals are well taken care of. My 3 year old daughter learns something new each time, gets some fresh air and exercise and we both have a good day. HIGHLY recommend.

    Buying a flex pass was WAY more difficult than it needs to be. They print them there, but you can't buy them there. You have to do it online. The mobile website is clunky, too many steps, and you have to fill out a bunch of personal information to purchase. Why not just sell them at the gate? The zoo itself was nice, animals were happy, easy to get around.
