    We had my Daughter's birthday party and we loved the experience. All the kids had so much fun and everyone had such a good time. The host Christine who showcased the animals during the birthday party performed an excellent job and she is extremely knowledgeable about animals. The place was clean, including the bathrooms and was just perfect..Highly recommend this place..
