Our group had a wonderful time at the zoo this past Saturday. My Mom's 71st surprise birthday party went extremely well. The zoo folks were very responsive in the planning stages. The buffet lunch was delicious and the gazebo set-up was very nice. We had a fantastic lunch with family and friends visiting together in a relaxed atmosphere, and then enjoyed checking out all of the animals at the zoo. The unlimited train and carousel rides included in the Zooventure package were a big hit with both the small kids as well as more mature folks. Our group made use of the motorized scooter rentals too.Sent on 09/29/2015
