Zotastic always woks hard to make a fun night at Christmas. The drive-through light show matches any in the area. And at the end of the road, you get to tour Zootastic at night! Get your silly Santa pictures in a sleigh, with Santa and a tiger. They have many big cats, as well as some other animals to see.... More

My wife and I decided to go here to see how it was and if it was something the kids would like. It was a little cool, but there were a lot of animals. You can buy cups of feed to give the animals. The giraffes were sticking their head out of the barn window which was cool. Mostly level... More

This is a nice place for a family outing with kids. My kids loved seeing the animals and enjoyed the hands on experience you can have with the animals. They have a nice playground and large gift shop. Definitely stop in if you are in the area.

My daughter had her 7th birthday party at Zootastic yesterday and I could not wait to sing praises! The whole experience was seamless from our arrival to our departure. The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The park was clean and all the animals were easy to view. The kids really enjoyed the Zookeeper experience we had... More

Took grandkids and they loved it. The wagon ride was fun and had a great guide. They really loved being able to really get up close to the giraffe.

My son (25) took a group of us here for Christmas and I was having a wonderful time. Being from San Diego I was amazed at the variety of magnificent animals and more importantly how close you could be to observe them. THEN, it was time for our behind the scenes animal encounter which was truly one of the top... More

Our kids had a blast at the zoo. However, there were some things going on with some of the animals which were a little concerning. The big cats were clearly very stressed out and pacing in the enclosures and one of the giraffes were bleeding. The grounds were also in need of some major tlc. Ticket prices were cheap compared...

We took the kids to this drive through Christmas lights display. I highly recommend! Get there right when it opens or even a few minutes before. Otherwise, traffic gets backed up to the highway. There are a ton of lights to see, all set to music. After you can stop inside to see Santa, petting zoo and amores. We skipped... More

Nice zoo with beautiful, well-fed animals. The layout is a little confusing, but we just took our time and made sure we saw everything. We bouggt the food to feed the animals for $3 and then you can buy extra food for $1. You get to keep the cup too. Since it is the middle of winter, I can imagine... More

I was not disappointed with this Zoo. The animals were all active and and it was about as close as you can get to wild animals compared to most Zoos.
