    Excelente lugar para los niños pero debe tener al menos 4 horas y revisar los espectáculos diarios, es al aire libre por lo que se debe tomar en cuenta el estado del tiempo.

    If you expect to see a lot of animals during Zoo lights, don't bother. The reptile house is open, and you can see the giraffes sleeping. There are however a lot of trees with Christmas lights on them.
