Great day with the family

We have had an annual pass since my children were old enough to walk. The zoo has a lot of diversity and plenty to do for all ages.

We have had annual passes to this zoo a few years. It has 4 parts based on the geographical location of the animals. (Africa, Australia, South America and Florida) The walkways feel like you are in the woods with lots of shade trees. There is also a kids swim area for young children, to beat the heat in Florida.

Compared to something like zoo Miami, this is a physically small zoo. But the experience was huge fun. The giraffe exhibit was amazing. You are literally within inches of the giraffes. I liked it so much I bought an annual pass.

I attended a zoo open house my company puts on every year. It was a great day. Saw lots of fun animals in a unique habitat. The rhinos were very active. Neat to see so many alligators up close and a crocodile as well.

The zoo is very interesting, you can enjoy all day out there since there are animals from different continents. I really enjoyed feeding the giraffes, they are very friendly. Going in the small train around the zoo is interesting too.

This is a wonderful zoo just off of I95. We went on a weekday so we had a few school field trips but it didn't affect our visit at all. The animal exhibits were clean and informative. Feeding the giraffes and birds was fun. The train ride came with our ticket package but it is a bit tiny for adults... More

This little zoo is a great experience for families or just adults looking for a little bit of wildlife. You can feed giraffes, birds, deer, and more. The zoo is not too big, you can do the entire thing in an hour or take your time and spend the day there.

A clean and inviting place to visit with a group or even by yourself. Disappointed a few exibits were closed. Close to RT 95 . A good variety of animals to see . Most importantly lots of knowledgeable staff willing to explain to you about the animals and where things are. Not that expensive eather .Just came back from visiting... More
