This zoo is a little hidden gem. The giraffe experience here is amazing. You can get so close to these animals here. It is amazing. I recommend it highly to those traveling with kids.

Hidden gem! It is a small, very well built zoo. Surprised to learn they have 65 alligators. The kids, ages 19 - 12 - 8, had fun feeding the animals in the open farm. Feeding the giraffe was a superb experience. Try to visit early...More

ZooWorld is an old style zoo that houses its animals in small cages or small pens. If you are used to seeing animals in habitat enclosures, viewing animals in relatively small, concrete floored cages will seem odd. If you believe, as I do, that zoo...More

I don't think this would be very enjoyable in the rain. Most of it is outside.

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.
