I wasn't sure what to expect but i was pleasantly surprised. I figured we would see a handful of cats but there were way more than i expected. We went shortly after it opened and most of the animals (except the bears) were up and about. Two of the tigers decided to get in a fight, complete with movie-like roars.... More

Perfect for a quick trip to see animals or have a birthday party. You can buy feed to feed bears, ducks, wolfs and some monkeys. If your planning a trip over a meal time, bring your picnic lunch and use the tables to eat. There are no restaurants in the area. They do not serve food but they do have... More

Drove over an hour to go to Tiger World just to be greeted by a rude woman at a closed gate saying they were closed for a private event. Would have been nice if the information was on their website and saved us 2 hours of wasted drive time.

A nice rescue sanctuary that is doing a good job taking care of animals who need good homes. A good place to take family & friends & help support their efforts to house & feed all the residents.

I had the pleasure of going to Tiger World for the first time yesterday with my daughter. There is so much I could say about this wonderful place. The love and care I witnessed and heard from the volunteers etc was just awesome!. The workers/volunteers do not consider these animals to be anything other than family. All of them have... More

We were aimlessly driving around looking for something to do and thanks d for trip advisor popping this hidden gem up! It's $15 for each adult. Price is definitely fair. It was so much fun. The animals look well taken care of, you get super close to them and have the ability to feed some of the wildlife. Looking at... More

There are many different tigers to view, as well as other animals. Tigers were very active as compared to most animal parks I visited. Some areas of the park are shaded but can get hot in the sun. There is a water/soda machine away from the park store for your convenience. Munk is a must see!!!

Just went to Tiger World yesterday. While the place appears to be run down and not as pristine as some larger facilities, I realized after walking around a while that appearances are not the only way to judge this type of facility. The cages are pretty large and well-shaded for the most part. The animals seem to be well fed... More
