We had read that reviews that said the zoo was small and not that great, but it was cheap and we wanted to get out of the house, so we went for it. It was just fine for a small zoo, but compared to some of the "big" zoos it was unimpressive. The animals were all in pretty small cages,... More

This zoo may be small but I think thats why it's so great! You get to see a large variety of animals without the tiring, all day trip to a big zoo. I love going to the zoo but I have always hated the fact that it's always an all day thing and you're rushing around trying to see everything... More

We took our two small kids here last week and they loved it. It only takes a couple hours to go through it but you get to see many animals closer up than a larger zoo.

This zoo is just okay. Basic animals. The kids were impressed. Would like to see a better variety of animals. But overall, it was just okay.

A great variety of animals! They seem well cared for and I am proud of them for rescuing these beautiful animals.

We always enjoy visiting the Gulf Coast zoo. In the summer they have animal excursions where you can play with lemurs, kangaroos and tiger cubs. It's a smaller zoo, but it is well maintained and the animals look cared for. If you are in the area and like zoo's I highly recommend this one.

We have been visiting this zoo for over 14 years now. This is a small roadside zoo that has taken in a lot of birds and tigers as well as many other animals. The new catch here is once you get inside you have to pay for the different animal encounters so don't jump into the first one you see.... More

Cute little zoo. The Kangeroo encounter was nice. Lots of tigers and a few other big cats. The enclosures allow for you to view the animals but a little small. My son enjoyed feeding and petting the goats and llamas.

I'm glad we went to the zoo but I don't know that it could be an all day activity. The pet encounters are neat. We did the Lemur Monkey's & Kangaroo's. The monkeys were fun but they may go to the bathroom on you (like they did my oldest daughter). The handler is there to clean it up with a... More
