Have been going to this zoo for over 20 years with family, friends, out of town visitors etc.. Would go at least once or twice every two years or so. I have watched it grow from a small animal park to a large animal park...More

I was able to see more birds than I ever knew existed! Beautiful birds! The lion, cougar & leopards were beautiful & huge! The giraffes were beautiful, too! The place seemed to go on & on, lots to see! I’d highly recommend it!

Admission is a bit high-really too high for what you get. They have mostly birds and monkeys. I saw a review that questioned whether the animals are well cared for. I found myself wondering about that as well.

My family and I enjoyed our time at the Wildlife Zoo. I love the petting zoo which has deer and farm animals that you can pet. You can get close to the giraffes also! And feed them! In addition they have the delicious Dillion's BBQ...More

This is my 2nd visit to the Wildlife World Zoo. My first visit was on May 17th 2017. It wasn’t fair because whenever I get to the lions, I hardly ever see them on either side. What this zoo needs is more animals. It was...More

We go here all the time, and if I wrote a review for every time, you would all get sick of it. Since my last review in 2014, there have been some great expansions and changes to the park, and there are more animals. There...More

Wow! What a great surprise! We went on a hot Saturday and purchased a Groupon. Free parking, no lines and the place was virtually empty. Ya, it was hot but you literally had a front row view of everything! The kids collected peacock feathers along...More
