For a while I had been debating on whether I should purchase a membership for the wildlife conservatory. It gives you unlimited access to all 5 parks, certain exhibits, discounted rates to merchandise, programs, and so much more. You can bring three adults and up to 5 children. I can't forget Free Parking!!!
The offer is amazing, but my experiences with the zoo, was that it was always too crowded, and overwhelming. After a lot if thought and a whole lot of "mommy, can we go to the Central Park zoo?!, so we can see the Penguins?!!" I gave in and became a member!!
I have to say, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I have been to build better memories and really appreciate the zoo. We get up early and head out to the zoo to get there right when they open! My Devynn said to me once, "mom I think we are too early, things are still closed" but I love it. Also, before my membership, I never really thought about visiting the zoo I other than during warmer weather.
This year we went to Boo at the Zoo, and I loved it so much! We went twice!
My second trip, I ventured out just me and the kiddies, and it was Awesome! We were able to catch the Dinosaur Safari and the last ride on the monorail until Spring!
I have to say the highlight of our trip was the special attention from a Tiger!
This tiger ran up to us the minute we walked into the exhibit. It pressed its head against the glass as if it were asking the kids to pet it.
I am so looking forward to taking full advantage of my membership!!!
