Come in the morning, the animals are more active.
Just an FYI, when you check here you get a free carousel ticket!!
After the zoo head over to Fords Real Hamburgers for a tasty burger
Don't bother with the train ride... Not worth the time.
The new North American River Otter Habitat is nice :)
For fun, look for a batman symbol, giant fork, a hummingbird, and duck feet at the zoo. They're all "hidden mickeys" around the zoo.
Kids need to be 42in to ride the carousel alone as there are no safety belts.
Leave a coat for the kids! #news10coats Coats for Kids!
Cold days/mornings are best to see the hyena and the snow leopards. Trill your tongue to get the kookaburra to laugh.
Love to watch the zebras! :)
Get married here, we did!
take the zoo camp its great the kids have a great time going behind the stage at the zoo :) <3
The "talking" Plain-Colored Amazon is a must see!!!
Avoid the train unless you want to wait in line for a half an hour.
If you need to change a diaper and find the restroom space awful, use the picnic area near the carousel ... Deserted most of the time.
Nice enough Zoo, for a mid-sized city. The parking leaves a lot to be desired, however. Plan ahead or you'll be walking a long distance.
Don't forget to check in. You get a free carousel ticket
Boo at the Zoo is great family fun on Halloween, but is designed primarily for the little ones.
Don't miss the chimpanzees! They are the highlight of the Zoo, climbing to the top of their cage, chasing each other around, and grooming each other.
Make sure to be here for the Giraffe Encounter. Only $3 to get up close and personal, feed a giraffe.
I'm 5'11" and barely fit on the train; it was quite uncomfortable.
