    This is an amazing zoo, parking is a bit difficult but if you can find free parking, you can have a family fun day completely free, and nothing beats free.

    This zoo has some great exhibits! It's laid out funky and one can get lost easily. I've been here twice and both times I've gotten turned around trying to find the exit.

    Wonderful zoo! Excellent exhibits with very content animals. The views of the animals are amazing, and the educational signage is very informative.

    Great zoo. Safari pass is a good deal if you want to do more than one of: the 4D simulator, the Children Zoo, the Railroad, the Stingray Experience.

    David Krause · August 22, 2013

    The seals/sea lions were so cool! However, wouldn't have spent so much time there had we known it closes at 5 on weekdays : (

    Become a zoo member. It pays for itself with parking passes, discounts, and tickets for stuff like the train and children's zoo.

    Rachel Bedsworth Faulkner · August 10, 2013

    Great for the kiddos

    The stingrays *hate* when you call them sea pancakes.

    Stephen Bolen · July 21, 2013

    As far as zoos go, it doesn’t get much better than this (plus, it’s free!). Peacocks roam freely throughout the grounds, and its penguin exhibit rocks–hands down. Read more · July 11, 2013

    If there is an opportunity to see the Sea Lion show, it's absolutely worth the $4!
