Absolutely well worth the money. Great experience and everybody was so nice and informative. It really is a large park and zoo and beautiful plants and grounds. I will go back again next time we are in Palm Springs.

Great experience with family. Kids had a great time! We got to see Big Horn sheep asleep on the mountainside. Only downside was the long wait in line for a churro, only to find S’mores around a campfire later.
