Our 3 year old had a great time. I think the play area, the pool, the pony ride, the food area etc are all great. There was an animal/ reptile show. The employee was friendly and knowledgable.
I wouldn't go back however....and most likely I won't recommend it to anyone.
I don't agree with their care of many of the animals- mostly the reptiles.
Today there was a plastic water bottle in the large turtle enclosure. Not really what I expect to see when visiting a zoo that 'cares for animals' (plastic garbage)
The snap turtles and alligator are kept in pretty dismal conditions. I understand that they live in a swamp when wild and can be quite sedentary, but at Krazy World it really came across as stagnant dirty water in a dismal cement pen.
What was most upsetting was the ostrich that was alone in a small enclosure. At this time there is very loud construction going on behind the fence that the ostrich is kept in.(Drilling etc) The bird appeared quite distressed. Again, I am not an expert by any means, but general welfare seems pretty basic.
Lastly, as we were leaving, I saw an employee dragging a screaming goat down a path, pick it up by the scruff of it's neck and throw is over a fence about 4 feet high. I did speak with management about this who assured me that care of animals is their first concern. Again, I have no experience with goats, but just viewing the handling of this animal was quite unsettling.
Many of the animals seem very happy and from what I saw, the staff seem to love working with them. But a good clean up of this park is needed- and perhaps a downsize of the animals kept?
I think Krazy world would be a lot better if they could eliminate alot of their animal 'issues' and focus on just having fun with an amusement style park and a small petting zoo.
There seem to be a lot of unhappy customers that find the animal care unsatisfactory. I live in the area and I know that KrazyWorld does not have a good name...I was hoping to see otherwise but unfortunately this didn't happen.
