This is by far, the worst zoo I have ever been to! It was 80° out & some animals had very little water. A peacock was out of his enclosure & so, couldn't access his food/water. At least one enclosure had no sign saying what was inside (some sort of monkey). I didn't see a single person who worked there... More

The best description of this zoo is that it is really good interactively. There are several exhibits that you can either touch the animals or get pretty close to them. It was pretty well laid out, but you can't see all of the animals by foot. You have to take a train to see some of them, and then you... More

We were surprised that the price was a little stiff; same as our major metropolitan zoo price. It would have been too expensive to take our grandkids and they offer no family or grandparents' membership packages. That's unfortunate because we really enjoyed our walk around the zoo. The cages are cages in the old fashioned sense, and that seems outdated,... More

This is a wildlife preserve and the visitors are allowed to feed the llamas and giraffes, which was very nice, especially for my five year old son. I advise that you buy the train tickets. Although it is an extra cost and the time on the train is very short (about 15 minutes) it is worth it to go into... More

It's a cute place with lots to see- great for families and couples. Don't forget to get some food and sticks to feed all the animals!

Go every couple of months. Definitely get the year pass. Get 10% off every thing with it and it only cost about the price of 3 visits

At first when we paid I thought this attraction might be a little pricey, no more than $20 total I think. After seeing the zoo however, I am totally satisfied that the money was well spent. Make sure to get the train ride option as you get to see things better/close up you wouldn't otherwise get to and it's not... More

If you're in the Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, Navarre, Gulf Breeze area you should visit this place without a doubt. Prices are perfect ($15.95 adults, $11.95 kids and under two years FREE). You can buy a cup of food (alfalfa pellets) and also the Budgie food if you would like. I highly recommend purchasing the food items as you can really... More
