Awesome few hours for my kid

about 1 month ago
We ordered our tickets the night before, got there right around 10 am and there were four other people there the entire time we were. We had the place to ourselves and the staff were all so great with my very excited four year old. You can tell outside, that they are adding more and trying to make it more adventurous, but for the price I was really impressed with the birds, reptiles, and outdoor area. Its got a sandbox with reptile bones and equipment to play like an archaeologist, a large tree house & 3 or 4 tire swings as well as picnic tables to sit and eat a snack if needed. My only two issues are: the bathrooms are set up like a room you are supposed to walk into. The door to both Men & Womens was left open to the sink and stall entry the almost two hours we were there. I'm pregnant so we went a few times and it was hard to keep my daughters interest and my comfortability with the door open and being able to hear employees walking by. We did bring our own sanitizer and wipes, however for all the upgrading they were doing outside and new wood, I didn't think wipes in the kids room or more anywhere for all the hands on equipment was something I wouldn't see more. But everyone may have different allergies and it may cause more traffic in smaller rooms during peak season, so I can see maybe that was a factor. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to work there which is something hard to achieve, the talking parrot, outdoor area in the back and playground out front were added perks! We will be back real soon.
