The Great Plains Zoo was great overall. The animals there are very well taken care of, which is something that I love about this zoo. There are also many animals there. They recently put in a new bear habitat, which I found to be great. Especially the new playground for the little ones. The museum was also great. It is not only kid friendly, but also a great learning experience for everyone. I have a membership there, and will continue to go back there with my family.
The zoo is awesome and always has great special activities for kids. I wish the cost was not quite so high or they didn't charge for kids until 5 because then I could take the little ones more often. Also, it'd be great if the special activities were discounted too.
Amazing place. Animals seemed happy and healthy. Winter is a great time to go! Less people.
What a great place for me to take my grandchildren, or for a family to spend time together! So many nice exhibits to enjoy. The Safari train and the Carousel are wonderful to enjoy also. The punch card for rides is a nice addition...good savings! I highly recommend purchasing that. Having a yearly membership is the best. That includes discounts of snacks and gift shop items....helps when you take kiddos!
Very nice zoo for our size of a city. It is not a big zoo but is well done. I do miss the birds of prey exhibit from days gone by. The rhinoceros, giraffes and snow leopards were great to see.
