The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
My Family Loved the Zoo and Cool Zoo
How did you discover this activity?
I love to shop for deals, especially when I take trips with my family. I used Google to find what other sites had tickets for what we wanted to do and voìla, there was TripShock.
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
We booked 5 days before our trip.
Why did you choose this activity?
Our kids have never been to New Orleans. We wanted to show them a good time and all that the city had to offer outside of the touristy areas.
How did you get to the activity location?
We drove about 18 minutes from our AirBnB.
What was your experience with the activity's staff?
Everyone was great from the ticket counter, to the lifeguards, to the animal handlers.
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
The entrance to the Zoo was beyond grand, and it made us feel like we were visiting somewhere magical like Disney World. I really loved how the grounds have many Weeping Willow trees with Spanish Moss and stone statues. I also loved the detail that went into the designs that were unique to the different areas within the zoo.
There are fun displays all around with some of them even being interactive for everyone to truly experience what they were seeing. Our oldest daughter was in love with the many reptiles, and our youngest was excited about the petting zoo and rolling hill.
We had lunch at Cypress Knee Café and I honestly enjoyed the food. It exceeded my expectations with just a burger and fast service.
The best thing about Cool Zoo was the way it was setup for all children of different ages, and the fact that we were able to view the elephants while splashing. Above all, we felt safe and secure, and didn't even feel the need to purchase a locker for our belongings.
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
Yes, because you most definitely get your money's worth and actually save money at the same time. Those two factors alone make it a great activity for families.
