Hard to argue with that. Henry Doorly is awesome.
It's no Blank Park, but then again, what is?
It's a really good zoo. I really enjoyed the San Diego Zoo also.
It's been a while since I was there but I thought Kansas City was pretty good. Doorly is awesome though. The aquarium alone is worth the price of admission.
We have a family membership to Henry Doorly. Never get tired of going there.
the renovations to the entrance this year was pretty cool, haven't seen the new stuff in the aquarium yet.
Did they ever get a panda? I know there was a push to get one and they might have had a donor set up, but the Chinese hold them hostage. The company I worked for got a behind the scenes tour of the facilities and they really thought that's what they needed to put them over the top.
I've been thinking about taking my kids to Doorly this summer. Would I be best off to take a Monday off and go there then? I assume the weekends are crazy busy and I would also think the drive bys may have died down after the weekend.
There are some grea exhibits at HD, but for sheer size, I think you'd have to go with San Diego. I haven't been there in over 30 years.
Quick story. When I was in the Navy, a buddy and I went to the SD zoo.We were watching the chimps and they kept begging for peanuts. The alpha male would hog them all. We noticed the skycar going right behind the enclosure. So we each bought a bag of peanuts and took a ride. As we passed by, it was launch time. We couldn't see the action, but the screeching was almost deafening. When we got back, this guy we told was still there laughing his azz off. Said he never saw such a scramble.
went to Omaha zoo Sunday of memorial weekend .... lots of people but didn't feel that crowded. damn lemur island was closed though.
