River Safari

We went to the River Safari and the kids had so much fun! Even though it was a drizzly day, most of the River Safari is sheltered so the rain didn’t spoil our experience and I think the little ones really enjoyed themselves.

The River Safari boat ride and the animal exhibitions along the ride are not open yet so tickets are discounted for now at $25 for adults (U.P. $35) and $16 for children (3-12 years old, U.P. $23) respectively. There’s still lots to see though!

I really liked the pandas and the manatees! The kids were excited about most of the animals and were very pleased with their panda buns and souvenir panda cups. Can’t wait to go again when the boat ride opens!
