Everything was great, the only request would be to possibly hold the sloth or make it easier to see them.
So much fun
My boyfriend is obsessed with sloths and this allowed me to help him check off something on his bucketlist, which was pet a sloth. Dave was awesome! He was informative as well as engaging. He also help me check something off my bucketlist, which was play/pet the wolves. He later checked on us later that day when he passed us in the golf cart. Him stopping made us feel extremely welcome. I have been recommending this zoo to everyone that will listen.
It was a very interesting experience. It was fun, the employee was very great to work with, and she was knowledgeable. The sloths were adorable, and I love that it was such a close encounter (not a bunch of people in a large room!)
Amazing little find. Loved the encounters..... check that off my daughter bucket list! Extremely accommodating and family friendly. Highly recommend!
My husband and I had a great time visiting with the sloths. This was a birthday present for him and he really enjoyed it. We also had a nice time walking around the zoo.
We had a great time at the Indian Creek Zoo. We absolutely loved the Sloth and Giraffe encounters. We started with Hokey and Pokey the Sloths, being up close with them and being able to pet thier little heads was a dream come true. I swear I took a million pictures. Afterwards we walked around the zoo for awhile, my son loved feeding the animals carrots and he is 13th. Then we headed to our Giraffe encounter with Puzzles, that giraffe is the most loveable giraffe I have ever seen. We got to feed him a variety of veggies and apple slices, pet him and take a million more pictures. This is a small, initmate zoo. All the staff were helpful and friendly. We had the best day ever, we will defintely be back to visit!!
The zoo staff that we met while there were very informative and provided us with extra information about some of the other animals there. All the animals were active and not just sleeping. And we enjoyed getting to meet Bow and Arrow.
I gifted this encounter for a very dear friend of mine and she absolutely loved it! Thank you for hosting her and husband!
Our daughter has been addicted to sloths for years. We were so excited to have her be able to have such a cool experience. We have been recommending the zoo. We will definitely be back.
Our visit was fabulous! Sheri showed us around and she was amazing! We found your zoo on line specifically looking For a sloth encounter and it was within our budget and within a 3 hour drive. We had a great experience! Thank you!
Did the sloth experience and it was amazing! Staff member also let us play with baby kangaroo, baby wallaby and the wolf pups. We plan to come back next time we're in the area!
Overall, I was completely satisfied with my experience! I paid for my boyfriend and I to see the adorable sloths, and we weren’t disappointed. Aaron took us to see them, and he was so knowledgeable about them. I learned some new facts that day! In addition, we got to see some of the monkeys up close. The marmoset did get a little “personal” by peeing on my arm from its cage, but when you’re that close to a wild animal I wouldn’t expect a different response. My boyfriend bought me a little stuffed animal sloth to make up for it! Which by the way, the price was SO much cheaper than souvenirs you get at bigger zoos. I’m so glad I found this place, feeding/petting Hokey and Pokey was an amazing experience I will never forget. Thank you Aaron and everyone else at the Indian Creek Zoo!
Loved how interactive all the animals were.
I purchased this Sloth encounter for my nephew’s birthday. We had a wonderful time and the whole staff is very friendly and helpful!
I love sloths! This was an anniversary gift from my wife and it was perfect. It would have been nice to see the sloths a little more active, but they're known for their lazziness. It would also be cool to get a chance to hold one, but I can see why that's not an option.
We had a wonderful time!!!! Thank you so much for the hospitality we will be back for sure!!!
It was awesome. Everyone was so nice. My daughter was overwhelmed with emotion to be that close to a sloth. Bucket list event completed.
Staff was super friendly and knowledgeable.
Fun and very educational experience.
IT WAS INCREDIBLE! Being able to go into the sloths habitat was a once in a lifetime for me. While I am a biased review because of my obsession with sloths, I truly thought it was amazing. Being able to feed and pet them while learning about the actual sloths that were there was great. Aaron was very informative and you could just tell he truly loves all the animals. I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed my trip to Indian Creek Zoo. I will be back for another encounter soon! Especially after the new sloth house is up and running :)
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to engage with the staff and the sloths were beyond fascinating- what an experience !!!!
Just awesome. Do it!
This experience was amazing! We got to pet and feed Hokey & Pokey whole also learning about them.
Indian Creek Zoo is a treasure. The Sloth Encounter was a birthday present for my adult daughter. We brought two of her good friends to share the experience. Even though Hokey and Pokey were sleepy (they are sloths you know), our guide, Sherry, made it possible to feed them and pet them. She educated us about their habits and nature. Sherry also took the time to show us Puzzles, the giraffe, and the sweet baby kangaroo. The zoo was not busy yet and she made our experience memorable. It would great to come back when the weather warms up to see all of the animals that were not as active. We love this place!!!
It was my granddaughters birthday she loves sloths. It was a really big surprise for her birthday.zoo was really nice differnley coming back when all the animals are out
Everyone at the zoo was very friendly!! Sherry was AMAZING during our Sloth Encounter. She’s such a sweet person & answered any questions we had. The experience as a whole was great & we will definitely be back!
The sloth encounter was so much fun! There are not many Zoos that allow guests to feed and touch the animals. It was also great to be able to take your own photos with the animals. The zoo staff member was very knowlegable in answering our sloth questions and we felt that they went above and beyond to make the experience special for us. This was a one of a kind experience!!
It was great to meet the sloths. This experience was a birthday present for my daughter. The staff was very knowledgeable and showed us more about other animals as well.
