Visitors’ Reviews

Nice place to take your family for a day. Lots of good information on most of the exhibits about the behaviors of the animals. More of an I close experience than any zoo I have ever been too. We have a season pass and the kids ask to go all the time during the summer. We can’t wait to return because sometimes you miss a few things you see the best trip.

This animal park is great. Hands down, great. My family enjoy it so much that we purchased the season pass for 2019. It is reasonably priced and so close to home. Its a nice alternative, than driving to Pittsburgh. They have a nice variety of animals like lions, camels, alligators, tigers, wolves and so much more. They do special events during Halloween (evening walk through) and my son’s favorite Super Hero Day. Its not as big as the Pittsburgh Zoo, but it’s still a very nice place to enjoy the day. If you haven’t been there before, please go and enjoy. If you haven’t been there for a while, go back! They have been adding a lot of new exhibits!

Great way to see animals in a way you rarely get to experience in a regular zoo. More to see than in the Pittsburgh Zoo.
