The prices are not inexpensive. We weren't prepared for the cost. Then the girl who sold us our tickets (we paid extra for the train) told us the wrong place to wait for the train, so we missed the first train. This same girl also gave us to believe the train ran every half hour which we asked her again... More

I am a huge animal lover so I do hate the small enclosures and chain link fences but for what it is it's worth visiting. My boys love it and love feeding the animals. It's on the expensive side considering you can walk through it in 20 minutes but again my boys love it.

This 50 acre park, was by far, the best attraction we found in our month long stay in the Destin, FL area. This is one of the "zoos" where all of the animals are not caged but can roam around freely in large areas that you can view from a fun train or elevated boardwalk which encircles them. There are...

We LOVE the Gulf Breeze Zoo. We are locals, and ALWAYS enjoy our trips to the zoo. Definitely get a feed cup and budgie stick! You can feed giraffes, goats, pigs, sheep, llamas and birds. The children always enjoy doing this. Definitely spend the couple extra dollars on the train ride because most of the big cool animals are only... More

This was a great pit stop while in Pensacola! The petting zoo is amazing and you get to feed the animals as much as you want. The bird cage was personally my favorite as you get to feed the birds and carry them around with you. I loved how close all the animals were! A definite must go

The gulf breeze zoo is a nice way to spend a couple hours. They have lots of animals you can feed including giraffes!! The downside is that if you want to see the hippos you have to take the train ridevwhich costs a couple more dollars...but all in all its worth going at least once!

We loved this zoo. Definitely family friendly and worth the admission price. The fact that you are close enough to all the animals to almost touch them makes it even better.

It is not a large zoo, but had a large area to feed some of the animals. Train ride was nice, but very short, girl driving the train did not stop to let you get a good look at the animals at the back of the zoo, and the train was the only way to get to the back part

We haven't been to a zoo in years and we decided to take a Sunday afternoon and walk around it. What a pleasant experience! The variety of animals was amazing and there were caretakers to answer questions. The budgies were fun to sit with and feed, we spent 20 minutes just watching them land on us. This is a great...
