  • We waited for a beautiful day and made a trip to Creation Kingdom Zoo. It is a relatively small park, but they are adding several more critters soon. We especially enjoyed how close you can get to exp...  more »
  • This is an amazing zoo for its size. The variety of animals is impressive. Even though it was hot when we visited the animals were still active.  more »

  • I absolutely loved this lil place it's so affordable and my daughter had a great time feeding the monkeys lemurs and Hoofed animals. It's awesome wasn't crowded and not overwhelming like zoos in big cities. Very self explanatory and easy to find everything.
  • Small but nice zoo. Feed/snack options for monkeys, lemurs and hoofed animals. Still a work in progress in a few places, but seems to be growing. Some of the cages seem a bit small, specifically the hyenas' and Tigers'.
  • Cute little zoo. It is nice. however the paths to be walked are terrible its not kid friendly especially for strollers SUCKS for a stroller. The price for adult it resonable at 10.00 but I will not be going back EVER nor will a lot of others that were with me the day we went. They charge 10.00 for my 2 year old! INSANE! not even Knoxville does that nor does any place you eat at. I understand if you want to charge for a 2 yr old but to be put in the same place as an adult!!! I can see maybe 1/2 if you want to charge but not 10.00 for a 2 yr old. I guess they figure if you can walk you have to pay! . Its not worth it. Another thing thats wrong that even Knoxville allows...if you plan to spend more than half a day at this zoo (dont though you can see everything in 25 mins!) and you have snacks/lunch in cooler you cant leave it in your car once you pay and go in they will not allow you to go out and back in just to get you food. Its sad that people in this area are struggling and Im sure this zoo is too but to be complete stuck up rude keeping up with the Jones's type people they should close their zoo and move it to an area with people more up to there speed. Here everyone is down to earth. Kind and always pulling together when needed not trying to be something they arent. I feel this place is so eager to be like a big zoo they take it to far like the charging for someone that shouldn't even really be charged but since they insist it is totally over priced for a toddler and bogus that you can be allowed to go to your vehicle an back in. Upon observing their attitudes they are more rude than anything the only people they talked nice to where those that purchased food from their shack and/or their gift shop.
  • Good family environment and nice variety of animals to look at
  • I really enjoyed our family outing a few weeks ago to this gem. Although our son (15 months) is a bit young to appreciate the experience, we had so much fun exposing him to all of the animals, which were not skittish in the least. The zoo's philosophy to make it an interactive and educational experience is well observed in how the animals socialized with us. We feed the zebra, camels, llama, wildebeests, lemurs, and more. And the price was so reasonable ($10, plus an optional $2 for feed). We will definitely be back with our older teenagers. I loved it and I know they will, too.
