When I first I sited this zoo,I thought it was kind of puny but I now think of it as a manageable size and includes a surprising amount of species. There is also a train that takes visitors through a nature preserve full of apes and other species. It was a sad day when they had to sell their very... More

There are a variety of animals and enjoyed the monkeys the best. We used the adventure pass to include the train, but could have done without train and not missed it. Though with children think it adds something to the experience. You can see much of the same by walking up to the upper boardwalk. The suggestion of an annual... More

It is a great zoo with lots of charm for the size and location. We have annual passes and frequent the zoo often. There are fun events at certain times of the year to include Halloween Trick-or-Treating and Christmas Lights! I certainly recommend visiting if you're considering it!

We went on the last night if zoo lights. Very nice presentation of not just the Christmas light displays but also how we were still able to see some of the animals. They had the gift shop open as well as cafe. Pretty much a normal zoo day but at night. Great experience.

We stopped in not expecting too much but were presently surprised and we had a lot of fun. Yes its small but there is plenty to do. I'd say its a half day event.

We spent Christmas Eve Day at the zoo, and enjoyed it immensely. Unlike bigger zoos, you can get close to the animals and interact with staff. We go every year, and we are never disappointed.

Going here for my family is a bit expensive. For five people including tax and the unlimited train rides is over 100.00 BUT... I feel it is well worth it. The kids loved going and having the unlimited train ride pass was a great idea. We rode many times and sat in different spots. Every ride they saw something different... More

We went to the Gulf Breeze Zoo on a sunny morning in December. The zoo is laid out nicely and it includes a large variety of animals. There are lions and tigers and bears (oh my) and a nice variety of African animals. There is a train that conducts a guided excursion to a more remote area of the zoo.... More

I am from Atlanta and have been to the Zoo there many times, but I have to admit I like this zoo more. It is much more intimate. You can get up close and personal with animals. Features a large petting zoo area, including the giraffes, and parakeets. Love the train ride around the park to see other animals. Highly... More
