    On a grey afternoon even w/o the island access there's still so much to see and do. Just ask my 4YO. Today we caught the Wagon Stage and visited the Dinosaurs.

    Not on the top of my list of best or favorite zoos. The gorillas are obviously distressed with a lack of stimulation and overall care of animals was basic. Importance seems to be placed on visitors.

    Fun zoo but it's pretty small - if you plan to come a few times it worth buying the members pass. Good for kids as you don't have to walk too much.

    Incredibly kid friendly and a good coffee supply. Great variety of animals and you can always catch some sort of demo or info session

    Penguins will be coming in 2012. Make sure to check out the Canadian animals. Super cool to be that close to moose, muscox and bison (among others) Read more

    We visited the big cats a little after noon and they had just been fed. Very active! Also, one of the elephants is due to give birth in January of 2013!

    Don't even bother with the dinosaur section. There is nothing but a handful of statues and a lot of fake rock.

    Get here early enough to make sure you can see the Amur tiger demonstration. Very impressive!

    Hippos mark their territory by whispering sweet nothings... make sure you get as close as possible and be at the front of the line... ;)

    Pretty much everything is good. The zoo keepers are good at trying to keep the animals entertained.

    The line up for penguins is insane right now. 90+ minutes so be sure to get there for opening.

    Pack a lunch, bring water bottles. It's cheaper and it reduces trash.
