We just went for the first time the other day. Besides having to wait for daycampers to go by so we could see anything, it was one of the best zoos we have been to! Best to go early and beat the heat if you can and take a lot of water or a container to fill up. Good walking shoes are recommended as well since you will walk 5 miles or more if you do the whole zoo.
skip it. long lines, hot, little indoor space.
many animals not in their enclosures, those that were were sad and often alone (only one of many animals)
