    Student discounts are not advertised but super worth mentioning! Be prepared to walk A LOT. There is a shuttle but it only does pick ups on one of the four sides of the park...kind of stupid...

    Beautiful place. You can easily spend an entire day here. Go for the Total Experience ticket and don't miss the Asia Monorail (red pandas!) and Jungle World exhibit.

    Лучше всего брать Total Experience ticket, даже если не пойдете в кинотеатр, существенно сэкономите на входе в отдельные павильоны и монорельсе)

    Go on Wednesday if you can. Half price and crowds are low before 1pm. Bring your own snacks and a water bottle to save money.

    The peacocks were my favorite, strutting around. Almost free as a bird, besides the fact they live in a zoo! Lots to see will come back hopefully the Tigers or the Lions

    $20 for general admission gets you to most of the zoo. The soft serve ice cream is also one of the best I've had.

    The admission price is getting very expensive. I don't like that they charge extra for all the different activities. I have already paid a small fortune to get in.

    Já fui há muito tempo atrás, lembro que valeu a pena. Vou repetir essa visita em um próxima oportunidade! Se não me engano, é o 2º maior zoológico dos USA, só atrás de San Diego.

    Across from the Botanical garden and near Arthur Avenue, is the largest zoo in the US. Habitats are pretty life like and there is a tram to help you get around. Cafe is on premise if hunger strikes.

    Make sure to download the zoo map online before you go and plan a route. It's a big zoo and you can just end up going in circles- specially if you are going with a big group of kids. Parking is $15
