Hot day. We cooled down at the cool zoo. Great for entertaining. Mother's day was full of fun activities. Food by cool zoo was cold and hard. I would ask for food to be made fresh. I'll rather wait than to get cold food. My kids 4 and 6 years of age shared a pepperoni pizza 10" My husband had a chicken Caesar salad, which the chicken was so old it was rubbery hard and chewy. I had the alligator bites. Bites were good. Fries comes with it but they were hard and Cold. Other than that kids had fun seeing the animals and enjoying all the other activities for the day.

What a great zoo... I visited here while in town from Tampa and really enjoyed myself. In my opinion they have one of the best reptile exhibits I’ve seen. Only reason for 4 stars not 5 is for size. I’d like to see more but maybe next year when the Lion exhibit opens it will get there. Over all great place and nice staff.

My son loves it here! So far, I haven't met one staff member that was rude. The price is mid range, which I don't mind paying. They have a little water park and a train ride through the zoo. as well as a carousel besides the animal exhibits. They are also adding a lion exhibit which will be great for the kids when finished. I recommend going if you haven't yet.

This zoo has so many different animals, it was a fantastic experience! It's a well laid out zoo with plenty to see and do. Also very well maintained and clean. The staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable on the animals that they're talking about. We did both the zoo and aquarium in the day package, well worth every penny.

Kids had an amazing time.. definitely worth visiting. If you're going for a birthday party make sure you go all the way to the left to the first window. That is the window where you check in for registered birthday parties. I stood in the wrong line for 15 minutes just to get sent to a different window. Gets pretty hot in the summer so dress accordingly. And definitely bring stroller of some sort if you have small kids. your arms will thank you later I made the mistake of holding my one-year-old in my arms were sore for a week.
