It was smaller than we expected. We couldn’t feed the giraffes or see the bear. Disappointed kids. I also feel that there was NO botanical garden. Some plants but not what was expected.

It was nice to have a park and water park out there that was included in the price. Some of the animals weren’t in their cages so we really didn’t get to see all. The zip line was fun to watch and I definitely would’ve tried it if it wasn’t near closing time

Tickets didn’t show up in my email. We have a much better zoo in Fort Wayne Indiana . Zipline disappointing

There was a ton of shade, which made the Florida afternoon quite nice. Had a great time walking through, looking at plants and animals. It's got extra fun stuff for little ones, but we did not utilize those on this trip.

My Zoo Experience

I booked this activity because I love going to the zoo, and I was looking for something peacefull to do on a Saturday morning. It WAS peaceful, and I loved the boardwalk. At times it felt like I was walking through a rain forest with all the different types of plants and trees. The only thing that I didn't like was that people weren't really trying to do the social distancing nor were most folk wearing masks in the indoor enclosures. But overall the experience was enjoyable.

The bears

Lots of fun. My 6 year old had a blast. She was afraid of bears and that enclosed helped her fears. My 23 year old loved the giraffe and watching them eat out of the barrels.

Rainy day, booooo

The zoo seems like it would have been a lot of fun. My grandson was with us and he enjoyed the animals that he did see but most were under cover from the rain. Not really the fault of the zoo, just the unluckiness of the day. I would go back in the nice weather to really check it out though.
