I read that review about Boo zoo being a waste of time. I strongly disagree. It is geared towered small children. We took my now grown kids when they were little, and now my grandchildren (various ages, various years). There are many different games, not just bean bag toss. That guy must have only stayed in one area of the... More

We went to the Halloween Zoo Boo. This was the biggest rip off I have ever been to. You had to stand in line for the kids to get candy at different booths. It was like the old school games. Through a bean bag through a hole or fish over the sheet. There was about 6 different/same games. They were... More

For the past 13 years, I have been bringing my grandchildren to the Hattiesburg Zoo. Over this period of time, the zoo has made some amazing changes--for the better. The Zoo Boo gets better each year and the zoo classes are great. Krissy Hamilton does a great job with the classes and I take my two younger grandchildren each month.... More

Although it was a very small zoo, me and my family enjoyed the small stop to the hattiesburg zoo. The cost was $15 dollars for three adults and I would recommond it to anybody in the area.Overall, a small and short stop that is worth it.

My husband and I took our 3 grandsons here and they loved it. Not too big to where they got tired before they finished but great layout and animals were very visible. They enjoyed it so much and then had time to go to play area.

This is a small zoo but the animals are very close to you. It's a really great experience. Picnic areas, Carousel, train ride, and water pad for kids to play on!

Been here a few times, its a great little zoo! Splash-pad is great as well! But they do not allow outside food or drinks! Very frustrating with kids.
