I booked a tiger swim with them on June 27th to do the swim on August 4th. On August 3rd, I got a phone call from the zoo saying the tiger outgrew the weight and we can either do a otter and bear swim... more »

If you ask me this is a scam! They canceled our tiger cub swim the day before we were supposed to go, and said they would refund our money. The swim was for 6 people! We have been calling every single... more »

We drove for hours and had 7 people and was told for reasons they couldn't disclose that no one was allowed to see the animals. But if we wanted to come back from TN the next day we could see them. A ... more »

We had the most amazing time. They were able to accommodate us and our 3 kids. We all felt as if we were the only ones there. The staff was funny, smart and very informative and generous to us with their time, answering many questions. We noticed they are in the process of expanding and none of this is cheap. They are a not for profit zoo and I think everyone (especially complainers) should start donating money to help and be grateful for a unique experience that we will never forget! And for 25.00 who cares of your pictures are crooked?!

If I could give this less than 1 star I definitely would. This place is awful! I paid an obscene amount of money to take my parents to pet a cub... we were only given 20 minutes and most of that was spent starring at the "trainer" feeding the cub or doing other things... you also can't take any pictures, but their "photographer" (basically a 12 year old with a camera and no knowledge how to use it) takes a lot - or so I was told. In the end I received about 100 photos, most completely over or under exposed... out of focus... cutting off parts of people or the cub in the photo... All of this on top of the fact that you aren't allowed to look at anything else... And I'm guessing that's because of the horrible conditions the animals are kept in. The only other animal I saw was a white tiger and it was in the smallest cage ever pacing back and forth... This is just not a good place... no respect for the animals, which is most important... and they are ripping people off every single day. So sad that I ever thought this was a good place to go. Never again.

Wonderful places to visit. You can tell the animals are well cared for. Definitely worth the money. Encounters are a must..

Customer service is horrible when it comes to managers and employees informing customers about policies. I get there number from a coworker and call to set up a reservation and they charge your card and never tell you about a "no refund policy." So a family emergency comes up to where I wouldn't be able to make the reservation, and then the military is transferring me to San Diego, CA in a month, so I ask for a refund and then now I get told about a no refund policy. So you have no problem not telling people prior to charging their account but once you have their money you tell them that there are no refunds. Then when you try to talk to a manager and one is never there and you are told that they will call you back, good luck with that because it is not true. Then the employee wants to be a smart butt by saying it's posted everywhere, well guess what when you get the number from someone and call directly you don't see any posts. I didn't have a sticky note on my phone informing me before I called. Your employees need to inform customers about policies prior to taking their money so they can make a decision as to if they want to continue. I highly recommend not dealing with these crooks.

I took my wife yesterday for her birthday and the experience was positive. It was well organized and the animals seemed like they were well taken care of. For the people posting negative reviews... you should actually GO to to the place before you pass judgement.. it was fine
