We went to The Lake Superior Zoo
earlier this month. It was a little more expensive than we had predicted and truthfully, not worth the money we paid to get in. Nobody informed us at the door that the bears were all put away for the day—no polar bears, no grizzly. Well, there was a stuffed grizzly inside but nothing to learn about.
I’m sure we can blame Minnesota weather for the lack of animals but man, we were quite disappointed discovering that there were no giraffes, elephants, or sea animals of any kind either. No camel, alpaca, penguins…
But, the kids didn’t know any better (they will after we visit the San Diego Zoo later this year) so they had a lot of fun watching the prairie dogs and chatting with the parrots.
Would we go back? And, pay that money for repeated disappointment of limited animals? No. No, we’ll definitely wait until we’re somewhere else to visit another zoo.
