In addition to animal shows and exhibitions, the park also provides visitors with opportunities for live animal encounters at its petting zoo. A few of the zoo's most popular attractions are its Parrot Bowl, which hosts the Winged Wonders bird show, and a 408 kg (400 lb) liger (combination lion and tiger).

It's okay. Good for free hours only. The water slides are very basic, nothing fancy. There are inflatable. When we went, one out of two wasn't even working. Bird show was good. Rest was all mediocre. You can feed birds at the park too. They do have some fancy entry bands.
The park was good! Still missing a few animals after the hurricane last year but the combination of animals and water park for the kids was great! The one thing that impressed me more than anything was the staff. Everyone was so helpful and willing to do anything they could to ensure that we had the best time possible!! Great experience and we will be back.
