Recently I have visited Toronto with my parents and we decided to visit the Toronto Zoo, which is known as the largest zoo in Canada and its 500+ species. I was very excited to go, because I am an animal lover, and I was excited to see what the Internet was raving about. I went in having high hopes, and well… I was quite disappointed.
Now a women I overheard at the zoo summed up my feelings perfectly: “If you’re a real animal activist, you will love that the animals are all spaced out far, but for regular people, this blows”. I mean seriously, you pretty much had to walk half a mile between exhibits, they had a “ZooMobile” that we were told “Takes you to all the major themes” but only goes to 4 of the 9 major themes, and everything was so… boring. Like the atmosphere, I felt like I was just walking through a remote park and then “oh look, there’s buffalo”, it wasn’t colorful, no interactive or even educational things for kids.
