Arctic Ring Of Life Reviews & Ratings
One of our favorite places to visit. The snow fox were lounging and visible. We could see the seals being fed and gliding over our heads. The art work is fascinating. The polar were not in site but when it's hot and late in the day that's not unusual. We will be spending lots of time there this year!
Cool place to escape the summer heat, beautiful artwork, artic animals, informative zookeepers and staff (volunteers?), and under water atmosphere. The artic outpost has more views, cameras, and an infared live video setup. Plus a giftshop along the path, and of course the artic cafe which is the main/largest eatery.
Love this exhibit at the zoo. Sometimes it can be hard to see the polar bears but most every time I've been there I've been able to see them even when hot!
I never realized polar bears could be so off-white! This part of the zoo is one of my favorites and my little one can't get enough of it either! No trip to the zoo is complete for us unless we go through the Arctic Ring of Life. This exhibit is a major win and a definite crowd pleaser!
The seals were showing off and so much fun to watch! But their enclosure seems a bit small. Hope to see it enlarged soon. Polar bears were cool too.
