This zoo is beautiful and huge. You have to spend the whole day to get everything in. You get all kinds of animals to watch and nature and scenery to enjoy. So fun and interesting.

We were a little disappointed that most of the big cats were not out. Or, the new little snow leopard pup. But, the aquarium and Stingray beach were awesome!

Parking was impossible. Drove around for 10 minutes and gave up. People west of the zoo were selling lot/driveway spaces for 10-20. We went to Laurtzen Gardens 5 minutes away and had a blast. :(
