  • My daughter had such a fun time seeing all the animals here. They offer feed so you can feed the animals as you walk around and see them. We will visit again when we come back to the area.  more »
  • Majestic, beautiful, and rare animals trapped in inhuman, small, unkept cages. I seriously am thinking about calling PETA on them. I have no idea how they get away with this. My one year old liked see...  more »

  • We have visited a few times now. The staff is friendly, and my son loves feeding the animals. The elephant ride was great. I would prefer these animals all be back in the wild but a lot of places like this save unwanted exotic pets and give them a place to live out their lives in a safe environment. I almost didn't go the 1st time due to the bad reviews but glad we did!!!
  • This "zoo" is a disaster. First impressions walking in with some young pregnant chick with a kid running around and a "I don't want to be here" attitude were disconcerting enough... The parakeet feed sticks were HOT GLUED and the bird couldn't even consume them, even at a dollar a piece I feel cheated. Half of the enclosures did not even have the animals in them with nothing about that listed in the website. Now I get it this time of year there are several types of animals that cannot be exposed to this type of cold like the alligator. But however there should have been some sort of discount or special price on admission. Or at the very least some sort of announcement on the website or even on the front door if you're less than text savvy. Several of the animals had Cuts or some sort of scar on them the tiger enclosures were way too small and unkempt. They're clearly has to be some sort of animal rights violation here even the elephant look like it was about to collapse the trainer that was with him yelled and berated the animal for turning around to look at me and my family there definitely needs to be some animal rights groups that come in here and shut this place down and get these animals to a proper zoo. The only reason this zoo is getting a second star is only because my kids still had a lot of fun out of it but as an adult who knows a thing or two about the world and animal treatment I cannot justify even one. Also the bathrooms had feces smeared all over the back and under side and don't look like they've been cleaned ever
  • Much better than anything I would have expected. Great place for kids as well as families. Was actually surprised by the number and types of animals here. A white Bengal tiger as well as giraffes and Monkees. Additionally there is also a petting zoo where you can feed some of the animals as well. Take about 90 minutes to walk through and see most of the place.
  • This place was fantastic. The animals were well taken care of and the people actually enjoyed their jobs. You can interact with many of the animals and can even feed the giraffes that are well-behaved. I would go back here again and again just to sit and watch the people and their reactions.
  • This is place is really nice. The only reason I took off one stars because they advertise being able to take a picture with a baby tiger and then when I got there and I want to take a picture with the baby tiger ....they said they haven't had one in a couple years. Well take down your ads people
