ok..on sunday we went to the jacksonville fla zoo..4 adults and 4 kids ( ages 6,4,3,2). we walked for hours in 100+ degree weather. we had really tired fussy kids by the end of the day, and went to leave. Then we were told that in order to leave, we had to walk through the gift shop. with 4 tired cranky kids. crying. I freaking swear they do that to people on purpose! they know kids are gonna go crazy in the gift shop screaming for stuff!!....damn zoo

Yeah they do. At amusement parks a lot of the rides exit through the gift shops. That's their ploy to suck you in, or at least TRY.

Thankfully, none of ours do that, but I can't go to the zoo without going in the gift shop anyway, lol!  But I can TOTALLY understand where you're coming from.

I love going to the zoo, but i remember when i was a kid living right next to it. When did the price of admission go up like this. Crazy. But we will still go.
