First went here in 1993, when my family moved to gentry. Ended up taking my children here in 2014, nothing has changed. Well, except the price is ridiculously high. A lot of the animals are pacing back and forth in cages that are way to small. The bathrooms are disgusting. Not sure how this place has stayed in business as... More

I went with my 5 year old daughter. We have been to a drive thru zoo in Missouri before but it was nothing like this. Wild Wilderness had so many animals and it was really pretty driving through the whole park. A lot of the free roaming animals would come right up to the car. After the drive thru you... More

Awaken discovery and amazement within your child as you pet and feed the animals in the petting areas. Ride the camels or interact with the friendly lemurs. We go at least once a year and this year my son has chosen to have his birthday party here. We are super excited!

First of all it is not cheap. $15 for adults and $10 for children over 3 yrs. There are several fenced areas and buildings most of which were empty. You could pet the kangaroos and that was fun. On the drive through it was pretty much camels, buffalo and some deer and antelope--over and over again. Many caged areas but... More

We took 8 of us through the drive they zoo in two cars. Pricing was good value for activity. They had large cats, camels, foxes, wolves, deer, hippopotamuses, buffalo and more. We also did the petting zoo. Full concessions stand. Only negative was a few of the employees were grumpy.

I have been here twice now and will likely return. The first time I got to play with a jaguar cub. The second time we went with my mother in law and she loved it. We got to pet kangaroos and feed a giraffe.

This is a family run animal park and has a drive through area as well as a petting area. The thing we love is the always have some animals to touch that are not in their petting area. These. Are often lemurs, or lion or tiger cubs. We have made numerous trips and will make many more in the future.

I had some family, with little kids, in town visiting and we were looking for something to do. We visited Wild Wilderness in Gentry and we were all amazed with the quality and quantity of animals they had. I will definitely recommend to friends and family.

This is a fun place to take the kids and see all kinds of animals. The kids love the petting area and getting to feed the animals. A great family run park that takes pride in what they do.

I have been to the zoo so many times I cannot count them. Such a fun experience for such little money. They have a wide array of animals and seem to take very good care of them. I strongly suggest to visit the zoo if you have a chance. You will not be disappointed!
