My husband and I took our 2 boys (2 and 4) to the zoo in Aug. 2008. We arrived at 10am and found that we had to park at a shopping mall and be bused to the park, when we arrived at the park we had to wait in line for 30 mins. for tickets and when we finially got inside we went to get a wagon that we had saw on the websit that they provide well they had ran out of wagons that were $15 to rent and stollers but had about 10 sitting aside that were "reserved", it did not say anything about reserving anything on the websit, we ended up renting a half sized locker that was $10, I mean I could not put anything in my car that was parked 2 km away and I wasn't about to carry towles, swimsuits,and lifejackets around the park all day. Lunch time came and we ate at the cantine we had 4 drinks and 4 bugers no fries and it was $35 and it was not very good. Almost all of the rides cost extra to go on and the train that goes around part of the park is $3 a person. It was not very often that anyone spoke english but what do you expect Quebec is mostly french.
My experice was not great but My husband and I have dicided to go back again this year ( the boys loved it ) altough this time we will be there very early so we can park close and we will bring our own lunch and we will also buy a 2 day pass because it does take 2 days to see and enjoy everything, I would recommend this zoo to others but if you have small childern deffintally go earlly so you can park close and leave most of your stuff in your vehcile also pack a lunch and bring your own wagon / stoller or reserve one all tough I'm still not sure how you do that.
English is not spoken or written in the park often. The animals names and tags are in both french & English. The food court, all the little vender sales areas, the entrance and the monorail ride used no English at all. A little frustrating and confusing and disappointing.
