It is a nice little place to go when you visit the Festive Lights. There is some walking to do but its worth it. Especially after sitting in the car for about a few hours.

Our grandchildren were delighted with the Good Zoo. There are animals inside and out. The meerkats were a fun exhibit. The monkeys are always a top attraction. Our grandchildren enjoyed the petting zoo and the model train exhibit. This trip we didn't see the laser light show in the theater but we have before and it is very cool. We... More

We stop here when we go to the festival of lights. It's a quaint interesting and fun little zoo. Definitely worth making it part of your trip to Oglebay.

Fantastic laser light show. Entertaining Christmas light show outside. Unfortunately, seeing these two things at night does not allow you to actually visit the zoo. But it was a fun evening.

For the unusually high pricing, there wasn't much to do or enjoy. We paid close to $50 (2 adults, 1 child) for the zoo, laser show, and train ride. The laser show was worth the $2/person ticket price, although it was, for lack of better terms, lame. The train ride was worthless. The only thing we saw on the train... More

There are some cool animals to see, such as a cheetah and a red panda but not as much a zoo as much as a few animals on exhibit. They did a good job with what they have and the landscape is beautiful and clean and the walk through it is serene. The toddlers had fun chasing the chickens, which... More

We had a great time at The Good Zoo. Having 2 very young children, it is the perfect size! We took the train ride which was not only fun in itself but also a good way to see the animals, especially the wondering deer that aren't even apart of the zoo! The huge train layout (located inside) is really a... More

A family visit to the Good Zoo will create a lifetime of memories of an exceptional day. Parents and grandparents will delight at the fun that youngsters have here--and they will have a great time also. Ride the train through the zoo, visit the animal petting area, visit with a variety of animal species, and enjoy a great audio-visual presentation... More

Spent a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Zoo. It is a small but sweet zoo and the animals are well cared for. I can't believe how tame the Kangaroos are. It is a nice place to share a family day.

We take my granddaughter here every year for the past three years. It is just the right size for small children. They don't get too tired and it is not so busy as to be overwhelming for them. There are a lot of hands on exhibits for them to play with. And don't forget the trains, the models and the... More
