Even after reading some bad reviews we decided to have our sons 4th birthday party @ the zoo and it was well worth the money we paid. All the kids agaes 1-12 where all happy and loved the aniamls they brought in for the party. Our host Natalie and Deanna where awesome with the kids and helped out w/everything. We never had to lift a finger. Was cheaper than doing chucky cheese and way more entertaining for the kids!!
