We had an expired Groupon worth $15.00. It stated on the paperwork that the $15.00 would not expire. The cashier would only give us $10.00 towards admission. (Contacted Groupon and they did credit my account the $5.00). The giraffe exhibit was closed. There was a dead bird hanging in he hawk's cage (had to explain that to a 3 year old). It's a nice place-maybe it's better later in he spring and summer.

Great local zoo. Lots to see, even when it's cold and several exhibits are cold--for the Groupon price it's well worth it even as an activity for a couple hours. Very easy to use the voucher. My bf and I (in our late 20s) went and enjoyed.

We had a fun couple of hours at the Turtle Back Zoo. It was under a lot of construction and since it had snowed a few days before some areas we not able to be accessed. We loved seeing the penguins and red pandas, but we're disappointed that the otters were not out and the giraffe barn was closed. We will be going back but I would suggest going in the warmer months once the construction is done.

It was a wonderful experience visiting the zoo after so many years. The new animal habitats were impressive. Highly Recommend for making more visits.
