This place is incredible. We were looking for something fun to take our toddler to and ran across this place. They offered a wide variety of animals, a opportunity to feed some, and a petting zoo. Our child loved it. I highly recommend visiting here

We visited in the off-season, but I can tell the experience is built around moving much larger crowds through efficiently. We were able to hit all the shows and enjoy the exhibits in between. Everyone was very friendly and there was none of the pushy...More

Its a small zoo. The staff were very friendly. We paid extra and did the lemur encounter which was well worth it to me! The lemurs were so sweet! Better signage about the animals would be a very good idea.

Small zoo in the middle of PCB. They have a good variety of animals for the size of this zoo and a small petting area also. Easily walkable for younger children or older adults too.

Parents and kids (2&4) all had a great time at this (to us) atypical zoo. Many unusual animals, a large playground, and a petting zoo, entertained us for a couple hours. Feeding the alligators was a hit. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and...More

I don't think this would be very enjoyable in the rain. Most of it is outside.

We didn't feel the sloth experience was worth the money. It is $35 each and no you don't get to hold it, just touch it. The lemur experience is totally worth it. They are sweet and you get to hold and pet them while the lady... More

Senior admission is $15.95, $1.00 less than regular price. Look for PCB Emerald Coast Guide. Has Dolphins on cover & is filled with coupons. 10% off coupons for Zooworld.
