It has many basic animals you can feed them popcorn hence the name “popcorn zoo” it take about an hour to finish the whole thing the price is ok especially you know its going for a good cause of saving animals to n distress.

Took our grand kids there at different times last summer and they really enjoyed it. They get quite a kick throwing popcorn to the different animals and watching their antics to recover the popcorn if it doesn't land close enough. The bears are especially innovative...More

The workers at Popcorn Park Zoo are friendly and make sure you are having a great time. The animals are your generic zoo animals, like tigers and other big cats. But they also have peacocks roaming around to feed them. You are also able to...More
