"My kids loved it! "
My kids loved it! There is a show that you can attend that is part of your ticket price, they have zookeepers bring out live animals and the kids got to touch (and got their picture taken) the same stuff they watch the crazy crocodile man talk about! Top choice for families great value for the cost
