    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.

    The primate house is great, leave time to stop in several times during day because you will see something new each time!

    It's very annoying to come to the Zoo on a nice summer afternoon and find that most of the food and drink places are closed. Very dissatisfied.

    The new walkways in the sky for the animals were great. You can bring in your own snacks and drinks, too! They have strollers available for rent. Peacock stalking is also available.
