Went here for the Lazer Light Show and the train display in the basement. Food is available but it's hot dogs, etc. A small fee is required but worth it. I did not visit the zoo animals but have been told it's a nice zoo.

Our grandchildren would have enjoyed the lazer light show. For seniors it was pretty but a little hypnotic for those of us who were short on sleep. The train layout in the basement is a must see for all. Very enjoyable. Did not get to see the animals as it was a little too cold and short on time.

Everyone should go see the beautiful Oglebay Festival of Lights. So pretty for the family to enjoy together. Love seeing all the settings and lights.

A very nice local zoo. Not as big as the ones in the big cities, but works for a family afternoon. Depending on the age of the kids & how fast you walk it would take 1-4 hours to get through the zoo. Likes-Nice assortment of animals. Nice walking path. Parrot feeding is always great. large play ground for the... More

We went there with family on a nice Saturday morning. It is an amazing small zoo to cover for 4 to 5 hours. There is a train ride that takes us around the zoo, there are a lot of animals - a few to mention would be parrot feeding, kangaroos, ostrich, rare and endangered zebra, African wild cat that looks...

The kids like it, But it's just big enough to make them complain about the walking. As far as zoos go it's just okay. But for the area it's in its pretty nice. If you are looking for something to do or can't travel to a bigger zoo it's worth the trip. It's pretty cheap anyway.

I brought a friend of mine who has an extreme fascination with red pandas for the ultimate animal encounter. I knew not to expect this zoo to be anything real fancy, but it was nice to be able to look at the animals when it wasn't crowded and I didn't have to worry about fighting with anyone. I typically go... More
