Overall, my family and I enjoyed ourselves, however, we didn't get the full experience of the park as we had hoped. Keeping in mind that we are still in a pandemic, the attendants at the ticket booth DID NOT wear masks. The lady who helped me was very nice, helpful and courteous. However, I was EXTREMELY uncomfortable at the fact that she was very close and MASKLESS. I originally purchased tickets to drive and walk through the park. With our windows rolled up, we drove and viewed the many animals. But by the time we were preparing to venture to walking tour, we noticed that NOT A SINGLE PERSON wore any sort of face covering. Therefore, we felt it was best to remain in the car and leave. Initially I felt that we could revisit once the pandemic is over, but I have since changed my mind and we won't be returning. For now, it is nice to know that the kids had a good time, even if we only experienced a portion of the fun.
It's a great little zoo. The real perk about coming here is that you can let and feed a lot of the animals. The drive through part of the zoo is fun because animals come right up to the car and you can let them that way. It's definitely a very kid friendly zoo. One thing to note though, several birds roam free, so do be aware of that.
Our 2 year old grandson loves it here- it has now become a tradition. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Some exhibits/ landscaping starting to look almost shabby- not irreversible. Be very careful if choose to feed animals on self drive through. Animals like to put heads in open windows and those with antlers/ horns can scratch vehicles
I love getting to spend time with the animals. Friendly staff. I will admit I feel bad for some of the animals that have smaller cages but this review is not a debate on it. So, overall I had an amazing experience!
I absolutely love it here. It feels more intimate than other zoos. It's always clean, not too much walking, and you can get closer to the animals. Even though you won't see a rhinoceros or an elephant, it's worth it. They have giraffes and tigers to feed in the main part of the park, as well lions, a cheeta, panther, bear, various primates, birds and tortoises to see (plus many more). You can get up close and personal with several goats, alpacas, camels, and other animals in the park. Their drive thru to feed the animals is a huge hit with the kids and is a blast even though it leaves your car covered in pellets and slobber. It's a messy but fun time to get up close and personal with at least 15 types of animals. We go here at least 4x a year. Definitely a place to visit.
