The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
Meeting a Two-Headed Snake at the Zoo
How did you discover this activity?
I found TripShock while browsing online for the cheapest prices for the activities we wanted to do. TripShock was considerably cheaper then even the parks themselves, about two tickets worth to be exact.
It seemed almost too good to be true, but I decided to give it a try after I looked into the reviews and boy I'm glad that I did.
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
We booked about four months in advance.
Why did you choose this activity?
My husband and I went to Audubon Zoo four years ago and it was hands down the best zoo we've ever been to. We wanted my teen daughter to experience it too now that she is traveling with us.
How did you get to the activity location?
We rented a car and drove ourselves to the zoo, but since there isn't parking downtown where the Aquarium is, we took the Streetcar to it.
The Streetcars cost $3 per person for a day pass and run non-stop. The drivers were friendly and helpful, but you have to have exact change whether or not you're paying for the day passes or per trip.
We loved the idea of the Streetcars, because they allowed us to enjoy the area without worrying where the heck we were driving or where we left the car.
What was your experience with the activity's staff?
The Staff was wonderful, friendly, and helpful at both the zoo and the aquarium. The staff made us feel like they knew us forever.
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
One of the coolest highlights on our trip was seeing animals that aren't featured at other zoos and aquariums we've been to. They have two-headed snakes and albino alligators, plus monkeys I've never seen before.
The parks are clean with open concept habitats that allow the animals to be housed together, which is true to nature with phenomenal architecture prominent in that country's region.
We also enjoyed the movie at the aquarium theater that talked about Hurricane Katrina and educated us on the destruction that's happening to the wet lands and swamps.
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
I would absolutely recommend the Audubon zoo and aquarium. It is great for all ages with constant habitats being added.
In 2019 a new lion exhibit is opening up which looks amazing already. These parks are so big that even with so many people, they are not crowded and therefore are as enjoyable as a shaded and peaceful walk in the park. We highly recommend!
