Very educational in learning about the different animals they have. You get to feed them on the tram. Don't forget to save some of your food for all the animals. We have been about 3 times on field trips and the kids have loved it all times. The petting zoo and horse rides are always perfect for the end.

This is one of our favorites! There are many unusual animals that you do not see in the Houston Zoo. Beware of the googly-eyed ostriches as they stretch their long necks into the tram and run along side of it while trying to get the food out of the bucket you may or may not be offering. Great photo ops. I think the admission price may have gone up.

Other reviews are spot on, my only suggestion is for the tram ride. I dumped all the feed into my bucket and bit by bit added some to the kiddos bucket. This way you can ration it out (ride was much longer than I anticipated) and you'll have a stock pile should little drop buckets by accident. Great animal diversity and up close experience!
