  • This zoo is incredible. The environments for the animals were so cool. Lots of nature feel to everything. Don't really feel like you're at the zoo. Definitely worth the price to become a member. Can't wait to try the zoo after dark!! Will definitely be back. Oh and feeding Giraffes was a life changing experience!!
  • I wish I could give more than a 5 star review. This place was amazing and the best zoo my wife and I have ever been to. Great experience getting to feed the giraffes and an elephant. Love the conservation aspect and also enjoyed that it was built into a mountain. Beautiful view and lots of animals to see. Some of the zoo was closed for maintenance so we missed a few animals, but overall a wonderful experience. Prepare for lots of walking, but they do have scuttles and lots of sitting places.
