Great zoo. It's very large & has lots of animals & things to do. When it's hot the kids can play in the fountain & in the Tetons geyser.

For how good this zoo is I would have expected to pay a lot more in entrance fees. We arrived at zoo opening on a Friday. Zoo was not busy at all. We had the panda exhibit to ourselves. We were able to see keepers feeding lots of the animals so they were all very active. This zoo really is laid out well. You are able to see everything with minimal doubling back. Free sea lion training show. Like most zoos there are additional add on experiences (camel rides, giraffe feeding, sting rays, carousal, train) but all of the actual exhibits were completely free including the aquarium and petting zoo. We ate lunch at the Cat Cafe. It was pricey but that's what you expect at a zoo. Food was fairly good though. They do have a splash pad and a giant wading pool for kids. So if you come in warm months bring a swimsuit, fast drying clothes or a change of clothes. Additional $5 to park but if you come early there is lots of free parking in the park around the zoo but you are going to have a further walk.

Larger than expected. Many exhibits were closed at this time. Still a great place to stretch your legs while driving to Texas.

This zoo is pretty great. Every zone has awesome animals (and a building with A/C if it's hot out). The tram is a godsend and my kids had an awesome time seeing the pandas and riding the camel.
