Makes for a nice day trip, To us, the long time resident monkey with a temper was the most entertainment.

My daughter and I went here last Saturday; it was our second attempt, since I neglected to notice that they were closed on Wednesdays before coming the first time. I'm glad we came back. Now, this is not the NC Zoo; there are not hundreds of species in huge natural habitats, with 4D movies and Carousels. They concentrate on big... More

Took our 13 year old niece. She loved it and so did we. Great little zoo with nice variety of animals. Went on a Saturday but it wasn't crowded. Fun time!

A hidden gem, 20 minutes away from north Charlotte. Big Cats everywhere and so beautiful! You can tell they are well take care of. Recommend not going when it's hot! The cats are sleeping or tucked away trying to cool down in their den. It's also a little too hot for you too not much share. We will definitely be... More

Really fun day at the park. You can get within 5' of these amazing animals. Lion, tigers, leopards, emus, bear and so much more. Goggle for a $2 off coupon. Print 1 coupon per person, they will not accept 1 coupon for more than 1 person. Food cup $5 to feed the monkeys and birds. Definitely worth the price all... More

My daughters and I went here for Mother's Day and I was pleasantly surprised at the variety and number of tigers and lions they had on display. I especially loved the white lion. Tiger World should be commended for caring for these animals and creating the best habitats they can with the resources they have available.

We went here on a somewhat cool rainy Saturday, but it was well worth it. This is a small zoo but it does not disappoint! The grounds are very well kept and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful we paid our $15 per person and were given a map of the parks layout and told to wander around... More
