This was a neat stop on our trip! For it being small, they had a nice layout of all the animals. The cages for the bears were too small, though...that was sad.

My 9 year old niece is obsessed with sloths. After seeing the billboard advertising the sloth encounter, I decided to surprise her with a trip to Zoo World. I felt like the experience was overpriced for 10 mins (supposed to be 15). The two sloths...More

It is a nice small zoo, but it is expensive to visit, especially if the kids want to participate in the animal interactions (with lemurs, alligators, etc.).

My 2yr old grandson and I walked into the zoo, we were greeted with a little odor, to be expected, it wasn't overpowering but I didn't expect it since I've been to zoos all over and not experienced this odor anywhere but the Cincinnati zoo...More

This zoo beats Birmingham, Nashville, and Memphis on their variety of animals. We enjoy coming here thoroughly and especially enjoy feeding the giraffes and other zoo animals. They also have a petting zoo that is great (it has baby deer, for example!!!). See you again...More

The price was very reasonable. Not a huge collection of animals. A couple lions, Tiger, giraffe, birds and a few monkey. There was however an impressive collection of gators. Like i said earlier, it was cheap. For the money it is a great activity well...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

Senior admission is $15.95, $1.00 less than regular price. Look for PCB Emerald Coast Guide. Has Dolphins on cover & is filled with coupons. 10% off coupons for Zooworld.
