We had been avoiding this zoo because of the admission cost of $30.00. But we do have a two-year old grandson with whom it would be fun to go with and visit any zoo. On Saturday we joined Nathan and his parents at the Lowry Zoo in Tampa. Our first stop upon entering the park was the Wallaroo Station, which is designed for preschool age children.
Unfortunately Nathan and his parents did not join us for the safari ride, the wait for that was about 45 minutes because of the long lines. John and I were able to do that later in the day after they had left. The wait was still 45 minutes, and after taking the ride we decided it had not been worth the wait. The expedition just took us past more caged animals- the train ride at the St.Louis Zoo is definitely better!
John and I did enjoy other interesting areas of the zoo, which I will write about in the next posting.
