It’s a good zoo, but old. Many areas were closed or being cleaned on a Saturday at 10am. Recommend, but Spring may be a better time to visit.

It looked like a really nice boat ride but we never had the opportunity to ride the boat since the river was being drained and cleaned on the day we finally decided to use our tickets and no one said anything..? hmmmm?? But it looked awesome, glad to know they do keep it clean and drain it once a year (we were told).

Go City: San Antonio Explorer Pass - Choose 2, 3, 4 or 5 Attractions
Passes were easy to use. I called each place I planned to visit first just to be sure I didn't need to make reservations first (due to COVID) and had no issues. It turned out to be a great deal for our family. We went to Sea World, the zoo, Witte Museum, Legoland Discovery Center, and the amazing mirror maze.

The giraffes are very lovely, the toucans and the elephants. We enjoyed it a lot, there’s a lot of animals and a lot of them I’ve never seen them in person.

Feeding the flamingos was a great experience for the family. The team did a great job explaining how to feed them and telling us the story.

Was the best experience by far. Better than Dallas and Abilene put together. Although I would have loved to see some Gorillas. Big bummer there!!! Still the best!!!

Go City: San Antonio Explorer Pass - Choose 2, 3, 4 or 5 Attractions
So far we have visited the K1 Speed Indoor Carts and it was great. Then we drove 30 minutes to the Indoor Skydiving, listed as a premium choice. Well, I should have called first because when we got there I was told that they are no longer associated with the Go San Antonio Explorer Pass. This morning I read the reviewer that stated they called before going to each. Great advise that I will follow. Just think that whoever monitors this great program would remove any event that drops out of the program so that it is no longer on the list. Looking forward to the remainder of our visits.
