  • The Zoo was great to visit. We even got a membership to the zoo. The zoo talks with the animals were great. It was a great experience.

  • Great zoo. Awesome Christmas decorations and lights. Very large kids area. The african bus tour is well worth the wait. The manatee rescue area is fantastic.

  • The zoo is an awesome Tampa experience, fun for all ages. It's a great attraction for young kids with a carousel and whole area dedicated to kids with a splash pad, playground, and rides. The manatee cave is a must see. It's dark and cool and offers an underwater view of the manatees. You can watch them eat and swim. Kids love it. The new Florida Wilds offers great views of the Florida panther, wolves, and bears. We've been able to see the bears and wolves quite active in their enclosures. The zoo has started offering some pretty good food options. The kids area has a Wendy's truck that sells ice cream and I've seen street corn stands for sale. There is also a hot dog booth with specialty hot dogs. The Africa area has a nice safari ride that takes you behind the scenes of a bunch of different animals. They seem to have such great staff and really passionate animal keepers who are always happy to talk about the animals and share their knowledge.
  • Such a fun place, my kids love it every-time we go. You buy a ticket once and it’s good for as many times back in the year that you want to come. It’s the perfect size park for kids to be able to do everything and see everything there without being too much. A nice fun day trip. There’s also two splash pads for when it gets hot, which is perfect ! Easy to navigate and the staff is always helpful when you need assistance. They have several rides. Some for little kids and some for bigger, as well as face painting & jungle gyms for the kids to play on as well. My family loves it.
