Brought my wife to tears when she found out she was about to meet a sloth! I surprised her for our anniversary
Visiting and feeding the Hokey & Pokey was wonderful! My son and I loved it! They are so sweet, well worth every penny! Loved the zoo as a whole. It was our first visit and will not be our last. Being able to feed the deer, sheep, alpaca, donkeys was a nice bonus! Loved that the animals were so close and very well taken care of. Thank you for a wonderful day!
The experience was great, the animals seemed happy and healthy. The staff with us showed us their enclosures and had a lot of information too. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone interested in seeing a sloth up close.
The zoo was amazing. With the obvious rapid expansion we can’t wait to go back and see what happens in the future.
The sloth encounter was absolutely awesome! Wonderful place. Very up close and personal.
This way a birthday present for my now 12 year old daughter and she was absolutely thrilled to be able to get that close and personal w her favorite animal in the whole world!! You just can’t get this experience anywhere else.
I was glad I was able to do it
The young woman who led our sloth encounter was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and friendly. My finance and I drove 3.5 hours each way to come to the encounter. When she learned just how far we drove she went above and beyond to show us everything the zoo had to offer. She showed us the wolf puppies too and let us pet them. We went back to Cincinnati and told all of our friends how much we loved Indian Creek and that it was worth every mile we drove.
The staff and experience was wonderful. We certainly recommend visiting. Great visit.
We had a great time but it was hard for my 10 year old to see the sloths since the beds were up so high. It was a great experience.
I had a whole day planned and this was just a small part of it.. My girlfriend absolutely loved it.. small room and only a few people allowed each day.. You get to pet them and spoon feed them. No holding, as everything is stressful to a sloth. Still worth the happiness of brought my gf
Really cool place and friendly staff would recommend going to anyone
Indian Creek Zoo was so much fun! It was very interactive and very entertaining. We can’t wait to come back when they’ve expanded or introduced more animals. I wish I could’ve taken all the wolf-hybrid pups home! What a bunch of goobers!
This zoo is hands down my favorite zoo that I’ve been too! Staff was super friendly and knowledgeable, the animals all looked very happy and well taken care of! 10/10 will be coming back!
A bit expensive. My grandson loved it. Maybe being able to pet a little more.
My daughter loved the sloth encounter, it was such a great experience and very affordable.
I loved the zoo and I thought the grounds were adorable. I loved that it had a small family feel and I loved that you could look for smiley faces indicating that you can feed certain animals. I also appreciated that you could get fairly close to the animals when viewing them. I also enjoyed the sloth encounter, but I wish that it was more organized.during the encounter, We were ushered into a very tiny and hot room, and looked at, pet, and fed the sloths for about 10 minutes and then left. I would have liked a little more education and interaction with the sloths. It just seemed like an afterthought to show the sloths instead of a planned viewing. Overall I enjoyed the zoo but wished for more during the sloth encounter.
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.
