We loved Zoo World. The staff was very friendly and informative. There is quite a variety of birds and animals, and we loved our visit. My teen daughter actually asked to go back a few days later!

This was our final activity of our vacation and this is highly recommended. Although it is not a large zoo there are enough little animals for the kids to never get bored. They pet a lot of animals and even got to feed the giraffe

I can't say enough about this Zoo. They really care about their animals and it shows. They provide plenty of enrichment unlike other zoo's I've came across over the years. From feeding a giraffe, petting zoo area, to the aviary where small birds will come...More

We found the zoo worth the time and money. Definitely consider purchasing food for the animals when you pay to get in or you’ll be running back for it as a huge part of the fun is the interactions you get while feeding various animals....More

We were concerned we would be wasting our money but O.M.G. it was not! The animals are amazing, our daughter did the sloth encounter and LOVED IT! It's clean and well-kept and they're adding on to expand the enclosures. I would absolutely recommend this place...More

The kids liked going to the zoo while we were on vacation. My oldest loved feeding the animals when she wasn’t screaming in between because they were licking her lol. I was looking for more different animals, but it was worth the trip and family...More

The lions and tiger were pacing, others seemed happy. We've seen the same pacing with lions and tigers up at the Toronto Zoo near us and they have far bigger enclosures. Honestly, I think it would be best if they didn't... More

We didn't feel the sloth experience was worth the money. It is $35 each and no you don't get to hold it, just touch it. The lemur experience is totally worth it. They are sweet and you get to hold and pet them while the lady... More
