  • not it's not and for the price they charge you would think they'd have a better animal selection!!

  • We go to Lake Tobias in Halifax, PA and that is a great cheaper family day trip! There is a petting zoo, safari, and reptile show! All for around 10 a person!

  • yes it's very reasonable in my area. children under 3 are free, children 3-11 are 17.95 and adults are 19.95.

  • It is a little pricey by me to go once (zoo Atlanta). like 19.99 a person (for us that is pricey for one day out) BUT a yearly pass is $99? lol. We got the season pass.

  • No, it's expensive. It's an awesome zoo, but it is the typical "attraction" prices.

  • Depends on what you consider reasonably priced. For our family of three, it would cost about $35.

  • Well if you live locally see about joining the friends of the zoo or something like that, ours costs about the same as going twice, but we can go as much and as often as we want to with our season pass. I pack a cooler and we have lunch out doors.

  • OH and the $99 was for a family 2 adults up to 4 kids.

  • It is only because we got a membership. A year's worth of unlimted visits costs 10 dollars more than going there twice.
