My two kids, my father & myself all had the BEST time at the Zoo! We are on vacation from Maine & this was the perfect day adventure for my kiddos! The animals were gorgeous and we were able to find our way around easily! We will definitely be back again on our next trip here ♥️

The zoo was a wonderful experience - there were lots of animals that my boyfriend and I had never seen before even in other zoos. It was large and there was a variety of exhibits. Very worth the price as you can stay as long as you want (from opening to close)!

Crowds controlled so very pleasant experience for children as they were able to easily see all the exhibits

It was great, simple! And any questions I had they were very quick to help!

Aquarium and Sci Museum for a great rate. Saved $ and had an awesome time.
