This zoo was a fun experience. That being said, it was an expensive outing. With a family of 5 adults and one child it was almost $200 just to walk in the door. There was a lot of things to see so plan it to...More

We took our grand daughters, ages 6,7 & 8 here for the day and it was a fantastic place to visit! We actually liked it better than the Phoenix zoo and Odysea as the animals are so close and there is so much more to...More

Some interesting animals here. A very low key comfortable zoo, and of course the weather can't be beat! There are even a couple of rides to excite the kiddoes a bit more. Plan to spend two to three hours enjoying the wide open space.

Found the add in a local free mag - was a $5/person off the entrance. Hands down the best wildlife park we’ve ever been too for wildlife! Tigers, rhinos, monkeys, reptiles, birds (big birds) - just about everything except big mammals. A little pricey ($40/adult)...More

Great Zoo lots of animals. The only bad thing is they do not except credit card once you are in the Zoo for the rides or food.

We were here on a Saturday in December (it was a cold day!). I have to start this review by saying - this attraction clarifies throughout your visit that they are a rescue/restoration facility for animals and they are entirely privately owned and funded. They...More

We really enjoyed the experience. We went with 2 children (ages 8 & 11) along with my parents (in their 70s). You can rent strollers or wheelchairs of needed. It's quite expensive ($40 per adult) but can find $5 off coupons online. It does include...More

I cannot begin to say enough good things about this fantastic place. This is by far and away the best zoo experience because you are able to get so close to view the animals. Four of us went on a Saturday in December. We arrived...More

I'm not really a zoo fan but this is a pretty decent place to take kids. Petting zoo, aquarium, otters were the favorite areas for our kids. Very pricey. Best way to cut costs is to look for 2 for 1 admissions coupon underside of...More

They do have wheelchairs available, however they do not look like they are in the best shape. All the paths are crushed gravel and that also makes if very difficult to push around a wheelchair for any length of time. If you... More
