We really enjoyed it earlier this week! So much better than our experience at Greenville Zoo in SC. My young son and husband did the treetop trail zip line and enjoyed that too! The park is huge and there is a lot to see. Definitely will be going again soon!!

It is a wonderful pass to purchase. Getting into each site was easy and effortless. The amount of time and money saved makes it well worth it.

It was great & by using the app to order the tickets in advance we didn’t have to wait in line to purchase tickets.

It was great! I loved seeing all the different kind of animals.

Absolutely a blast. This pass was worth every penny!
