  • What a wonderful place! Very family friendly for any age. The exhibits are well-maintained and the animals seem happy and healthy. Some experiences require an extra fee (bounce house, parakeet house, animal fees). The petting zoo critters are adorable and very social. The exotic creatures are just beautiful and you get to see them up close, not from a distance. The fences are definitely adequate for the creatures they contain though the giraffe can be a little rowdy. The predators were impressive and active during our visit, and might be a little intimidating to the younger visitors but there are plenty of distractions for any interest level.
  • Rosamond Gifford Zoo?! What’s that?! This place is awesome for a day out with family and is way better than the zoo here in Syracuse. The kids can interact with the animals instead of simply watching them pace back and forth behind glass. As another reviewer already said, it’s clean and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Can’t recommend this place enough!
  • We have visited The Wild many times with our grandchildren and each time it just gets better. The crew does a great job with the animals and grounds. Can't wait to go back this season🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
  • If you haven't visited The Wild, it is well worth the trip. This place has such unique animals and it is all beautiful. The animals are healthy and well taken care of. The bird experience is a must do! It was my kids favorite part! Plan two to three hours to see everything!
  • Love this place! It is clean, easy to get around, affordable and, honestly, it is not too large, which makes it a nice length trip for the wee ones. I mean, for $12 where else can you feed a giraffe and pet a camel?!
