Great zoo that’s walkable and a nice size, yet has exotic animals and a nice variety. Wonderful one-on-one programs available for adults or families to interact with and feed the animals. Wonderful Halloween celebration every year that kids love.

We spent a fantastic afternoon at this zoo. The animals all look so happy and well cared for and the staff truly care for them. It is also very reasonably priced and the grounds are lovely to walk around. Can’t recommend it enough

We love this zoo! It’s smaller than our local Pittsburgh zoo but so much cleaner, less crowded, more scenic and cheaper. It’s within Oglebay Park and offers food at a concession stand at the beginning.

After spending $20.00 plus tax we found out that the train wasn't running, and the bird area was closed. The snack areas were closed as well. After the tour we went into the gift shop and we were told to leave by an elderly disgruntled...More
