Being born and raised in the north valley, the Wildlife World Zoo has always been one of my favorites. My parents took me there many times as a child and now that I have children of my own, we go at least once every year. And now that they have the aquarium, I love it even more!
Here are few fun facts about the zoo and even a coupon!
First opened in 1984, the Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium features 66 developed acres with hundreds of animal exhibits, 5 ride attractions, 3 retail shops and several dining options.
