We are season pass holders and visit the zoo as few times a year. The animals are well taken care of and the staff really care about them. The zoo has recently gotten bad press because of the death of the giraffes. If zoos were not in exist children would never have the opportunity to ever see and learn about some wild animals.

We thought is was a great little zoo in the heart of the city. We were there in Dec during the week so we had the whole zoo to ourselves (only 10 other people there)... I thought the zoo keepers were very caring and loving towards the animals. It felt very up close to personal... very neat. We got to touch so many of the animals. The enclosure for the loins and the tigers were well done and we felt close and could see them perfectly. The monkeys were very stinky but they are nasty anyways. I thought it was a really cool experience and we would visit again if we go back to the area.

I don't even want to give it one star because it's worse than terrible. Many animals have died here. There are baby animals that were obviously taken from their mothers and stuck in a tiny enclosure and they look SO depressed! :"""( The animals pace back and forth and they just sit in a corner with their heads down! HOW can anybody give this hell hole a good review??????

Our kids (11, 13) and cousins (9, 16) absolutely love going to Zoo World every time we visit Panama City Beach. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The price is much more affordable than Gulf World and you come come/go as you please. They just got new baby giraffes. Good break from the beach scene and you will enjoy.

This is small local Zoo. I personally don't care for Zoo's but this one is special and I will stop in every time I'm in town. The employee's are very dedicated and helpful. My family and I were in town over Christmas (2013) and we were looking for something to do. It's a very hands on kind of place. The wolf show was really fun and back in the petting zoo part their is a Camel named Lawrence. Never had much exposure to Camels before but he was the coolest animal at the Zoo .
Loves to be petted. It's a much see place when in town!!
