Recently my family went to the Tulsa Zoo. It is a truly awesome place and the kids love it there. We paid $8 per adult and the boys were free. They even had a wheelchair for my mom. We saw pretty much every single animal and even heard the lion roar! It was an unforgettable experience. The food was kind of expensive ( if I am paying $7 for a cheeseburger it better be made out of giraffe to justify the expense). The bathrooms were colorful ( I wished I had a penis though because it takes a lot of faith to sit bare-assed on a toilet when all you keep thinking is "what if the anaconda escaped and is in here!").
We had to stop at the gift sshop of course and buy a mediocre over priced gift for the kids or else it wouldn't be a colette day. If you want to be thrifty here is what I suggest: pack a lunch, bring drinks, buy animal stickers and stuffed animals at dollar tree but give them to the kids at the end of your zoo trip. You're welcome.
