Oct 14 2019: Attempting to use app from the United States (to plan an up and coming trip) and it just closed down immediately after it says "Connecting". It says "Unable to connect to host, please try again" but it never works. I've got good internet connection. Please fix. Update Oct 14 2019: Tech support bounced servers and I'm able to connect! Thanks for the quick response and it all works now. Great app! In the future it would be great to at least pop up a message saying servers or down or something instead of exiting. Thanks! Updated review. One small note: when I go to open up the app it assumes I'm actually in Sydney and therefore says my google location needs calibration. It probably should just detect I'm not near the zoo and say something like "Can't find you on map" or something.

Thanks for the feedback. The servers are restarting outside of business hours in Australia, so please try again shortly!

The old version took forever to load, this version seems better. Surprised there is not a way of having a digital friends of the zoo card on the app. The card only uses a barcode that can be scanned at the entry. Would make life so much easier for people who don't have their card and reduce the work at the office for temporary cards.

Since my last visit to the zoo the app is vastly improved! Responsive UI, I love that when I open the app, it prompts me the info for the closest attraction. The only disappointment (and hence 3 stars), is the information for the shows is not accurate. The app has limited use without that information
