    Avoid coming on rainy days. None of the animals are out and there was only one indoor eating area, which was filled to capacity. The children still had a wonderful time. The Primate House is the best

    Something for everyone. Very kid and family friendly. Weekdays are best for avoiding crowds. But bring a lunch since most food courts are closed. Love the kids petting zoo.
