My two favorite parts (aside from the sloth sighting) was the shark exhibit in the bathroom and the "underwater" carousel."
-Ashley, Scottsdale
Fabulous day out with my wife and 12-year-old grandson. They had lots of fun with the penguins. Must be Arizona's best kept secret.
-Jeff, Tuscon
By far the best nature family experience you can have in the Phoenix area especially if you want to get out of the heat. The facility is amazing the displays are amazing and it was just super fun.
-Michael, Colorado
