The behind the scenes tour the voucher was good for

Always love the animals and getting to see the new exhibits. Was interesting to hear some of the behind the scenes stuff on this tour.

For an additional $5 we got to feed the penguins, what a treat! They were adorable and their beaks touched our hands as we fed them fish.

The back-stage tour was mostly in the kitchens where they prepare food for the animals. We expected more behind-the-scenes activities besides the kitchens.

The rain forest exhibit

While I enjoyed our tour and the guide was knowledgable I felt the tour was a little short. I was hoping for a little more behind the scenes.

The behind the scenes portion was great!
