The animal enclosures were better than many zoos I've been to, and the animals seemed well treated (except for the depressed looking penguins)

Very pleasant atmosphere and easy to reach with Monorail. It's not big though, but very impressed hiw they treat animals so friendly. My two kids had good time here.
