  • My wife and I have been visitors to, and financial supporters of, this zoo since before they moved to their current location. We both have very fond memories of doing encounters with tiger cubs...

  • Almost every pen had nothing but overgrown grass, with a name of an animal in front of it, with no animal in it, this is a walk through, no one to help you with directions. Over half of the stalls...

  • Such a nice zoo. The staff is always so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the on-site dining and activities such as merry-go-round, sluicing, and animal encounters. The walkways are wide and easy to use. Bathrooms are clean and accessible. The kids enjoyed the play areas. Overall a great zoo!
  • What a lovely zoo! We went right when it opened and it was very peaceful. It’s very clean and well kept, all of the animals seemed to be very relaxed and happy. We ended up walking around the loop twice and that gave us an opportunity to see some of the animals that were still sleeping when we first showed up. We will come back if we are in the area again!
  • Awesome Zoo great price and plenty to do and keeps interest for kids and adults! The butterfly exhibit was a nice addition and probably one of our favorite things. We went around noon and unfortunately most of the cats were asleep and we never did see a male lion. But we will definitely be back!
  • Not quite as good as fellow reviewers led me to believe. When driving up to this place there is a grand entrance like Jurassic Park and a long driveway in leading you to believe that you are going into a larger zoo than you actually are. They boast 300 animals, but when you have several of the same kind over and over it doesn't seem like you are seeing very much. I would go 45 minutes east to Gulf Breeze instead if given the chance over again.
  • Cute fun zoo to visit. Lots of animals to see. If you want can even add on animal encounters. Has a zip line for those more adventurous. Didn't go in the Cafe but has food options. Has a gift shop also.
