Great Zoo - Don't Feed the Geese

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by buzzbeat on January 29, 2010

Depending on how long you have:

Big Cat falls - a must
Primates - a must
Lorikeet adventure & bird show - musts
Petting zoo - a must if you have little kids
Reptile house is still a winner too

I was a bit let down by the new ornithology house however.
Elephants have been moved to Pittsburgh

Food is inexpensive but very ... well, zoo-like. Don't feed the geese, ducks and peacocks - they are very aggressive and will scare your kids.

Can get very hot in the summer with few shady spots.
