They are seasonal for camel rides and I think it's costs $8 to ride this camel. The camel is amazing he poses for cameras and this is his cute smile!

This is nice little zoo. Even in the winter months there were animals to see. Plenty of friendly staff around to answer questions about the animals. All in all great place to spend an afternoon at a reasonable price. Worth checking out.

First to Review

This zoo is both super fun and leaves things to be desired. It has improved greatly in the last 5 years, so if you haven't been in a while, you should go! The old lion gets up on his rock and roars every single time I've been there, which is awesome. There are two tigers, a regular and a white one and they like to wrestle. The Gorilla exhibit is great too. And they just built the best playground I've every seen anywhere. It's really amazing and huge. We have a membership and sometimes take our son just for the playground. This zoo is not at the caliber of some of the bigger city zoos, but it's really worth going and fun nonetheless.
