Our kids really enjoyed the Living Desert, from the giant model railway when you first arrive to feeding the giraffes and riding the carousel, there is a good mix of activities and animals.

Tips for Families

I think it is key to go at opening - even in January it was warm by early afternoon when we left. As well, it is a looong way between attractions when you are walking with kids - there is a shuttle that you can pay to ride around on for the day but if you plan on walking, make sure your kids are up to it or make sure to take strollers. There are coupons online for $2 or $3 off admission, making it a bit more affordable.
