  • There is nothing special about this zoo. Its all uphill, most of the enclosures for the animals seem small and the animals dont seem real happy. By the time you get to the top, youre exhausted and...

  • This is a really beautiful zoo. There is an entertaining assortment of animals, the grounds are clean, and it's thoughtfully laid out. Given that it's in the side of a mountain, it's a little hard...

  • Best zoo I've ever been to! The animal enclosures are large with shade and running water. You get to interact with the animals not just stare at them from a distance. Feeding the giraffes was amazing! My kids were excited to stand right next to penguins, wallaby and feed tropical birds. The best part is that the zoo has a timed entry which really helps control the crowd size, we went on Memorial weekend and had zero lines.
  • Amazing zoo experience. Just WOW to the people that trained the Grizzly bears. They are so trained and is so fun to watch. I felt like a kid watching that. Besides that organization in the zoo is perfect. The water fans are amazing for this summer season. The feeding experiences are with it. Highly recommend
