We really enjoyed it earlier this week! So much better than our experience at Greenville Zoo in SC. My young son and husband did the treetop trail zip line and enjoyed that too! The park is huge and there is a lot to see. Definitely will be going again soon!!

The experience was uplifting because I believe animal conservation is closely connected to the adverse effects of climate change; when we sustain the one, the other will benefit.

It was great & by using the app to order the tickets in advance we didn’t have to wait in line to purchase tickets.

Get time, kids enjoyed, very packed but still worth it…

My experience at Zoo Atlanta was simply AMAZING!!!
