Parker is turning 2 on Saturday. We are trying to plan something fun, but not too expensive to do with him to celebrate. We thought about going to the Columbus zoo, which is about a 2 hour drive from here. Has anyone been there and is it worth it? Our worry is that it's only open 9-5 and it's huge. Is that enough time to see everything? Or see as much as a 2 year old and his 3 year old brother can handle? Or does anyone have any other good ideas? Thanks ladies!

I have been there and it's really nice. I think it's worth the drive. We took our kids when they were 2-3 and the hours were fine for us.

It's divided by continent so you can kind of easily pick and choose what you want to see.

There are plenty of playgrounds and Jungle Jack Landing which is like carnival rides.
