You would think for a high admission price of $17 you would get more than just access through the front doors. However, this is not the case. The paddle boats, giraffe food, and even the train cost money. It's hard to have an enjoyable experience...More

Best place in Brevard County Fl to get away enjoy the grounds and different types of activity such as kayak, zip line and feeding some of the animals. Take your kids they will learn plenty about the animals and nature.

If you are looking for a nice day trip for all, this is the place. Nice, clean, and so much to do for all ages (children to adult). They really take pride in their zoo. Staff are friendly and educational. Just a real nice time.

Wonderfully designed so that the animals run free (for the most part) and the humans are in cages. Don't miss feeding the giraffes and the petting place.
