Really enjoyed this zoo. Great for small children. Not overwhelming. You can get close to the animals. Staff friendly and helpful. Interactive activities available. Will go again.
This was a great escape for an afternoon during our vacation to Orlando. Overall, I'd say that I really valued the intimacy of the experience, especially in the context of the big-ness of Disney, Universal Studios, etc. I liked how the enclosures were built so visitors could get great views of the animals. We met some keepers who were doing... More
We are annual pass holders, so we go frequently. Things are always changing. New animals and exhibits. They have a zip line and sprinkler park for little ones. We usually stay about 3 hours.
Thank you for your review and for being an annual pass holder! Not only is an annual pass the best deal in town, it is also a terrific way to support our non-profit Zoo. We have some more new things in store for you so stay tuned! More
The central Florida zoo seems to be constantly improving and offering holiday and special events for adults and children

Thanks for visiting and reviewing the Zoo! It seems you took in a lot of what the Zoo has to offer. We are sorry you found our beehive to be "creepy". It is intended to be an educational tool about how important bees are to our ecological existence. Frequent visitors do enjoy seeing the honeycombs grow and the bees hard... More
My oldest son had won a family pass to the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens several months ago and we have finally had the time to use it. We decided to do one of the Halloween events. We arrived around 11:30 and left around 3. The only thing that we did not end up doing was actually feeding the... More

Congratulations on becoming annual pass holders! You will now be able to enjoy discounts in the Zoo as well as to fun events... More
Small zoo that is great for children. We were a little disappointed with the botanical aspect of the zoo. I expected to have the plants labeled. We are from up north and were expecting to learn about the different plants, trees and flowers of a botanical garden. This was really just a zoo on a small scale.
Thank you so much for visiting and reviewing the Zoo. We are sorry to hear that we did not live up to your expectations of a "botanical garden". We are limited with what plant life we can sustain in our tropical wetlands environment. Many visitors from other climates expect to see lots of colorful flowers but we have a different... More
It is a very small zoo. Can do it in part of a day. The food is very costly. And as you walk in there is all these extras that cost more to do. Of course there is now way around them and the kids are going to ask. Not impressed at all.
Thank you so much for visiting and reviewing the Zoo. You are correct, we are a smaller attraction than some of the others in Central Florida. We do say it takes about 2-3 hours to experience the Zoo itself. We're sorry to hear you found our food costly. We have recently improved the quality of the food we serve and... More
My husband and I visited in august with our 1 yr old daughter and my parents. Free parking was nice, as you don't see that at other zoos. They had a great variety of animals and we felt that the admission price was very fair considering everything we got to see. It was a typical hot Florida day so it... More
Thank you for visiting and reviewing the Zoo! We are so very glad that you enjoyed your visit with us. We too love our big beautiful trees and hanging moss. Not only do they give you that "natural Florida" feel but they provide a tremendous amount of shade during the summer months. We are so happy to hear that you... More
I am a Florida resident and I have been visiting the zoo for a long time. So much that my husband suggested we become members . We regretfully did. Today we decided to take out family who was in town from Tennessee to visit the Zoo and the Splash Zone for the day. Upon arrival, we purchased tickets for the... More
