    Membership pays for itself quickly if you're a family of at least three and your kid(s) likes to be outdoors. The children's zoo part is great for younger kids: covered playground & splash pad!

    I'm 23 and i really enjoyed this place, imagine if you are a kid or if you spend time with your family; in my opinion you can miss the dinosaur pavilion,if you're with children you have to take them.
