Hollywild Animal Park

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Hollywild Animal Park provides home and care to nearly 500 nonreleasable animals native to five world continents. We invite the pubic into this process as a nonprofit organization relying upon visitor admissions to meet our mission of care for these amazing animals. Some in our history were even in feature films and national advertising campaigns, so the 'star' signs are a fun addition to enjoying the almost 100-acre park. Admission includes access to the self-guided walking park, scheduled Creature Feature programs in our Amphitheater, and the guided Safari Bus Tour. Come, bring a picnic, walk our natural pathways and meet our amazing animals. Lions, Tigers, and Bears, of course, but so much more. Park Season runs March - October. Daily open hours April - Labor Day. Park season admission is $12 adults, $10 students/military w/ID, $8 children ages 2-14, and infants under 2 are admitted free. The Holiday Lights Safari event runs nightly beginning at 6 PM from mid-Nov. through the first weekend of the New Year with admission of $6 per person.

“Horrible.”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

The place is filthy. The animals look miserable. There is an over abundance of goats. How many goat enclosures do you need to see? I wasn't impressed and left unhappy, especially for the poor animals.

“Tons Of Fun”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I have been to Hollywild many times and I always have a lot of fun. This is not your typical zoo where all of the animals are in cages. This place lets you interact with the animals. That being said you cant pet a lion but you can get close to many others. The bus tour through the park is a lot of fun and some of the animals will ride a long with you. You also need to see Hollywild when it is decorated for Christmas. This place is fun all year long

“We loved Hollywild!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Hollywild was a lot of fun. They have lots of animals, and you can get really close. It's much better than the Greenville Zoo.
