Had an AMAZING day yesterday with my two kids, Archie and Ruby, who had a 'Junior Keeper Day'. Justin, thank you for your time and enthusiasm, they had the 'best day ever' according to Ruby! Can't recommend this experience enough, Justin went over and above what I would have expected. We will definitely do this again! Thank you! - Toria Hyder‎

Thank you so much Justin, Harry and Charlie had an amazing day as Zookeepers for the day and now Harry wants it every year for his birthday! He has always wanted to be a zookeeper when he grows up and this has just totally backed up everything he has ever believed. I would recommend this experience to anyone and I can't thank you enough for giving the boys a very memorable day
