Poorly maintained and managed. Everything seemed dirty and faded; the animals were all cooped up looking sad and bored. We wandered around the whole thing in a matter of a couple hours - including taking in the dolphin show. I think if you really planned...More

This place is definitely the best time killer, especially with kids! You got dolphins jumping loops, elephants playing drums, monkeys yelling around, peacock showing tails, and penguins walking around in a big refrigerator..! If you don't like animals, the entrance ticket gets you to the...More

If you have time for a day, you should spent the time here. During summer time you can also enjoy theme park with slider/pool too. A lot of local bus passby this zoo.
