Check out the new African exhibit!

I can’t say enough great things about the zoo! If you are on the fence about a membership…do it! They offer several free promotions for members. For example, the month of January members were able to attend Camp Ground Critters for free! It’s a wonderful show that showcases several animals that have been saved from animal shelters.

I love the flexibility of being able to go for a few hours and not have to rush to see the entire zoo. It’s a great morning activity. If you are wanting to ride the train, see the show and watch a movie get the wrist band it’s worth it!

This zoo is AMAZING

This is seriously one of the best zoos I’ve been to in the country! The exhibits are incredible, with the Africa loop being the only exhibit that’s somewhat dated, but even then, my kids still love it. They love seeing so many different animals, the kids play area is so incredible with a great playground, maze, monkey bars, splash park, carousel, 4D theater, etc.

As for the exhibits, they really are incredible. The Land of the Tiger, the African Forest, and the Range of the Jaguar are so immersive and just blow you away every time. We never get tired of visiting the zoo, whether with our kids or without!
