“Fun-filled family experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

It was an improptu visit to this Tiger zoo. The place is located very close to Pattaya city- about 25- 30 minutes drive.
Overall, it was a very good visit full of fun for whole family, especially children. The animal shows are amazing. The Crocodile show was a thrilling show but the tiger show and elephamt show were also entertaining.
Whole family had a lot of fun feeding tiger cub and we came back with a few memorable photograph.
Children enjoyed feeding the fish with a bottle.
Overall a good trip.

“Don't waste your time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Where do we start... We arrived at 8am (opening time) where the ticket booth asked my wife to wait as she wasn't ready... Then a rude tour guide pushed in front of my wife to buy tickets (we are both asian, wife is thai but doesn't looks more chinese and speaks english like an aussie) to which when she said 'excuse me i'm waiting' he responded 'go back to your country' and whe she responded with "i am thai" continued to push an argument aggressively in thai.. Not only annoying but disappointing to the country if its tourgiudes behave like this (don't get me wrong, there are plenty of great guides too). i'm digressing but strike 1 to the park because the ticket counter could have easily said 'she was here first, you're second'.

As we walked through, we looked at a few caged animals, got to the baby feeding area where you can take a photo with a tiger but they were still cleaning washing, fair enough they're cleaning but they had no idea how long they were going to be. Strike 2... Nothing was really open. It was like a deserted town in there with a few staff around the place. Food and drink stalls hadn't even started preparations and there was just nothing happening.

I dont know if this is a newer attraction because i don't recall it last time we went but they have a shooting gallery where you shoot targets (for a fee) which release pieces of meat into a cage if you hit the target where they had quite a few tigers who looked a bit malnourished. That pretty much put me off the whole thing. I'll all that my strike 3 (i'm not particularly soft, i do like shooting, amusement things)

It didn't seem like any shows started untill 9.30.... Not good when you've done a lap and have a child in the group who will get bored waiting, with nothing left to keep entertained. So we left, entry fee waisted. I guess it was an expensive visit to use the toilet really and also disappointing taking friends who are visiting who haven't been to this place before.

I have been to a tiger place up north which is nicely presented and the tigers don't look angry and look really healthy and this is far from it.

“Shocking”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The animals looked mistreated and the tigers must be drugged. It's heartbreaking to see these magnificent animals treated like this, not surprisingly the most people here were Chinese tours.

“Call WSPA!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We were there for 40 minuts and Then we had to go! The animal were suffering one by one! This is not a zoo - it is a cirkus! The baby animals are without there mother. The small tiger that everybody could hat wounds all over its little head, because it was trying to get away. To many animals in the cages.. Overcrawded!! A horse was so sick that it Fall down when we saw it. I cried in there!! Do not bring your children in there! It is abuse of animals..
