Insider Tips

Food is available to purchase or you can bring your own food and water.

Don't try and park in the first lot that you see most of the time it is full.

Pay attention to the times for exhibits and shows so that you will see everything.

Wear comfortable walking shoes.

Bring binoculars to locate animals in the larger areas.
