This is a great place to visit and take the kids. On days when Mike is playing, it is great fun to watch.

It's a small enclosure, it's nice. Solo Tiger, about the size of a Cheetah or Panther enclosure which is alittle sad, but I think Mike is only here on game day?

If you're at the game, why not take a look. He's right there. I'm not a big zoo guy, so I'm not sure if the habitat is up to par. Sure looks nice.

Really enjoyed seeing the stadium but Mike was the highlight. He was posing for pictures on a hot day.

Mike is majestic and still a young tiger. He has a beautiful habitat that gives him plenty of enrichment. He swims in his lagoon and will come right to the window to look at his visitors you can tell he is very relaxed and comfortable....More

You can visit Mike's habitat at anytime day or night. The best time to see him active is during the cooler part of the day. Hope you enjoy your visit. You will really be impressed with his large habitat.

If school isn't in session there are lots near the stadium large enough for an RV.

Mornings are best. Mike is also out on sunny afternoons but usually sleeping. On really hot days he loves to swim in the pool at his home...such a fun time.
