  • Great place for a 1/2 day adventure with my grandson. Seeing a live Macaw out of its cage was great. Grandson having the opportunity to explore the conga drums and and xylophone and other instruments was real fun. The petting zoo was great, too.
  • This is a fantastic zoo. It was a little small and eclectic but my family and I love it.
  • My husband and I had a great time walking around and seeing all the animals. It only took us between 1 and 2 hours, but it was well worth the price. I do wish there were more shaded rest areas in view of the animals, though. We will be back again!
  • This is a fun zoo. I took just a short trip from mobile because I seen it had a great rating from other reviews. However, I was saddened when I found out the Jaguar Sampson had died just a few months ago. On the other hand, there is a train that goes around the whole park. Some of the park is under construction for new exhibits. Not sure when they will be done but I surly will be back to visit here. Zoo staff is very friendly and vibrant. Besides the young lady in the gift shop. As me and my friends walked in she really made me just want to turn around and go back home. She may have been in a bad mood, but it really was a horrible welcoming.
