Small but interesting animal park. I enjoyed it because it was not overcrowded! We were able to spend more time slowly watching the animals. Beautiful lion and three adorable lion cubs! The bears were fun.

Very pleasant even on hot days as most of the park is shaded by large trees. Hard to predict 100% but usually there are petting experiences for additional money. We played with lemurs, petted the sloths and fed the giraffes. Very nice variety for a smaller zoo.

This was our 1st time going to this zoo..... after seeing all the negative reviews, we were hesitant about going, but we did it anyways. It was a GREAt experience for us, we ended up paying about $75 for 2 admissions, the food cup for the animals, two seed sticks for the birds, three tickets to feed the giraffes, and... More

Went to check out ZooWorld since we staying next door at an RV Park. Lots of animals to see & feed. Very interesting information posted with each animal. Recommend going after 12 noon during school week to miss field trip crowds. Loved the barnyard animals--some really cute baby goats.

We greatly enjoyed zooworld. Everything looked clean and neat. We didn't buy any food for the animals. All of the keepers seemed very knowledgeable about the animals.

We stopped at ZooWorld on the morning we left the beach. We had seen the signs at Pier Park to Kiss the Giraffe and Pet the Sloth. I probably would have enjoyed the experience more had I not expected to get to touch a sloth. It cost extra. The giraffes were being difficult the day we went and wouldn't come... More

To be honest, I hit a zoo pretty much every place I go. I went to this zoo on my last trip to PCB in March with my boyfriend. We paid for admission, the food combo cup, and one lemur encounter (for me). I want to say it ended up being around $100. The zoo itself is pretty lowkey. The... More

My boyfriend took me when I came down to visit and we had such a good time, even though we're in our mid-20's. We bought the food cup combo thing, so we each had a stick to feed the birds (which I totally recommend even if they're tricky little buggers), a cup of food for the petting zoo, and 3... More

It is wonderful to spent a couple of hours there. There is a petting zoo there. You can feed the giraffe if you want to.
