    Come early like when it opens at 9 or even 10:30. It gets busy around 12 but if you come early there aren't that many families there yet. Also it's cooler in the mornings so animals are more active

    Fun place! The River Ride is fun and you get to see quite a few animals from the Australia part of the zoo. The sea lion show is really neat too, they do it at 11 & 3, make sure to check it out!!

    Fort Wayne's Children's Zoo is a great zoo that is definitely worth the price. With over 50 different animals, you'll be here for quite sometime. Try out the Sky Safari Ride to see the zoo from above!

    This is one of THE best attractions in our region! With kids or without, this is a great place for a summer experience. I've been to many zoos, and this one is top of class. Always improving too.

    Check out the kangaroos - it's a big enclosure that you can walk through with them just mulling about around you. Great pics to be had - one hopped right in front of us over the path.

    They have bathrooms all through the zoo now. Dutch the entrance one unless it's a must!

    Won't let you pet the giraffes... It kinda sucks, cuz you're close up and all they let you do is feed and watch them... But the feeding part is fun!!!

    Almost all features of this zoo are designed for kids. Let your child play in the 20-foot tree house or ride the log boat to see kangaroos.

    Bring a cooler with food and eat on the tables outside the zoo. The allow reentry so you save money buying expensive zoo food. Also buy a ride pass. You will save money!

    The Zoo is a great place to take the kids. They can run around, see the animals, and learn something new, all at the same time. Read more

    Always best to pack your own food or snacks since it's more expensive there.

    Unless your kids love trains for the sake of trains, skip the zoo train. It doesn't go through the zoo
