We came to the zoo by mistake and boy was it a big one. We had heard about a drive thru zoo and ended up picking up a brochure for this one thinking it was it at our hotel. As soon as we drove up I knew we made a mistake but we decided to have our picture taking with... More

Very nice & decently priced. It was small & not very big which was perfect with kids. The animals were well cared for & there was a lot to see.

This place is phenomenal, and no trip to Natural Bridge would be complete without a stop here. It would be a fantastic place to take kids, since you get to see the animals at very close range, and even get to feed some of them! The parakeet aviary is highly recommended, but be forewarned, they bite! Feeding the giraffes was... More

My grand children loved the Elephant ride! It was really hot the day we went but the kids still enjoyed all the animals -

The cages are outrageously small, the in closures that are bigger are dirty and inappropriate for the animals living in them. The smell near most animals is overwhelming. All I could think was how unfair it is to those animals to live their lives caged up. I mean that's the point of a zoo, but we have been to many... More

I visited today with my wife and 15 month old. The animal pens are a mess and not maintained. I felt sorry for most of the animals. The place charges for animal food and no animals to give it to. We felt dirty and disgusted when we left. We can not believe the state allows them to be in buiness.

Though there are several animals to view the surroundings are in a sad state of upkeep. The only thing that does not reflect that are there fees. There are benches and tables inside for your use but to have eaten there would have been impossible due to the stench and the sad upkeep of the surroundings. The bird area seemed... More

Similar to many zoos, but there are animals visitors can feed. The animals are well cared for and the cages are decent sized, unlike what some others say. The tigers are on loan from a well reputed tiger breeding facility that would not put their animals at risk if there were any issues with this place. The price is fair... More

This zoo is great and the staff are very friendly and take the time to talk to you about the animals and the care that the animals receive. The gentleman that was at the Cat area took lots of time talking to us and our 4 year old daughter. The zoo has made some great improvements. Check out the parakeets... More
