We went last year. The kids and I liked it, but, in general, contrary to all indications otherwise, I am easy to please. Deanna thought it was OK, a one time deal. Well, I plan to go again, if nothing else to get a better feel and view. Last year was our first time — and it is possible that it was the first time they did lights too. So it took me a few minutes to get my bearings and understand their thinking. For example we were at ‘Day 5′ before I worked out that it was the ’12 Days of Christmas’! To start with it just looked like individual displays. After that we were on the lookout. So when we got to the zoo, we were all on board. Ideally they should let you go around as many times as you want, or have a $5 extra charge for repeat trips. I would have done a repeat.
The lights are on until January 5. Late last night (actually very early this morning, like 12:20 am) I had a quick look at the Website and misread the date: it registered in my tired brain as December 5, as opposed to January 5. I thought that that was incongrous, closing that early. So I went and checked again now. I am glad that it was my mistake. We probably won’t be able to make it till close to Christmas. That might be OK. Might be something to do between Christmas and New Year’s. I will keep you posted. Cheers.
