The zoo was great! I think the cost for the sloth encounter was a bit much. Maybe 30 instead of 50.
The sloth experience was great, I’ve never been to a zoo where you could actually touch and feed the sloths; overall great zoo, really like how it’s kind of in the middle of a wooded nature area instead of just concrete for miles, definitely a unique zoo.
The animals were ones you wouldn't normally pet or feed at other zoos. The sloth encounter was amazing and grounds well kept. The staff was exceptional and price very fair. I highly recommed.
We absolutely LOVED Indian Creek Zoo. The staff were so welcoming ! My dream came true getting to feed and be around a sloth let alone 3!!! I loved petting and feeding the sloths while learning even more about them. It was such an amazing experience and I would recommend any sloth lover to visit. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks again for all that you do and give these animals a wonderful place to live and be loved.
5 stars all the way. Even with bad weather had the best time of my life. So educational 'friendly staff and a big hug to julie for making the best birthday ever. Have told numerous people already about this hidden treasure. Planning on coming back and bringing more people
The sloth encounter was great and the staff was very welcoming!
We had a great experience!! The guy who ran the encounter was very nice. All the staff was great.
The sloth encounter was AWESOME! We had so much fun petting and feeding the 3 sloths, and we learned a lot about sloths in general from the keeper. Indian Creek Zoo has a neat collection of animals and the staff is super friendly. The zoo has only been around for a few years and has lots of room to grow... it is off to a great start and I look forward to seeing it progress. Pro-tip... buy LOTS of carrots!!!
Had a great time at the Sloth Encounter. We were given Mango slices and Green Beans to feed the Sloths, they loved it. The young lady leading the encounter did a fantastic job, lots of knowledge about the sloths. We highly recommend the Sloth Encounter. Great time!
We loved Indian Creek Zoo! We enjoyed the sloths so much! Everyone we know was so jealous so, of course, we told them all about it! Thank you so much!
All of the staff were pleasant and helpful. The animals were close and visible. Once the path improvements are complete it will be even nicer.
We purchased the sloth experience as a present for our daughter. Although the weather did not cooperate and it was pouring rain she enjoyed it so much. Very informative and interactive. We can’t wait to come back and experience the whole zoo when the weather is better!
Had a super time with the sloths!! Our guide was very informative and made the experience awesome!!
I had an amazing time! This was a dream come true and such a unique experience. The only thing I would change is the experience being more personal. There were two couples (4 people plus the employee) in the sloth cage and it was a bit crowded. That is the only thing I would change. I can check this off tmy bucket list and I’m incredibly grateful for opportunity.
My daughter was so surprised to be able to get up close, feed and pet 3 sloths. Facilities were very clean. Very reasonable pricing for an encounter that isn’t offered at many zoos. Thank you for the wonderful memories she made that day.
It was completely perfect! The group size was good, we got plenty of time with Pokey, and our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. Would definitely go again!!!
This was my daughters dream to come snuggle with a sloth. She was super excited and was cringing from ear to ear the whole time. The gentleman that did the encounter was super informative. This was truly a dream come true for my daughter. I will highly recommend this to anyone! Thank you for making this available.
It was amazing to see all of yhr animals. Also the sloth experience was some of the most fun I've ever had!!
Loved how knowledgeable the staff member was and how close you got to the sloths.
We loved the chance we got to meet and feed and even video the sloths. Feeding them was a bonus. The questions were answered professionally and Aaron was very encouraging with my son because he was timid. Aaron gave more information then our questions. He went beyond what we were expecting. After we were finished we toured the zoo and the animals were all playful and we all enjoyed the white baby walloby in Mommas pouch. Very nice people and clean even though it was cold and Spring thaw. We saw the bunnies running loose and it was always a surprise to find one looking at us. Even a ground hog chirping at us!
The animals were amazing and friendly and the keeper was really nice and helpful. A very laid back and enjoyable experience. Would come back in a heartbeat!
Our guide was very knowledgeable about sloths and the entire experience was so exciting! The only thing I would recommend is clearer signs when entering the zoo as to where to park and where to enter.
We had an absolutely wonderful time with the Sloth Encounter. We couldn’t have been happier. Thank you, again.
Fantastic experience and friendly staff, will definitely be back spring/summer
The sloth encounter was absolutely amazing and unlike anything my family had ever done! We went on February 23 and pretty much had the zoo entirely to ourselves besides the caretakers. We were allowed to pet, feed, and take as many pictures of the slothts as we desired. We will be going back when it’s a little bit warmer out to see the other animals.
A genuine love for their animals and the people who come to see them
The staff was very welcoming and were able to give us a very personal and great experience with the sloths. Would definitely recommend checking this out for a neat thing you can't find other places.
We had a great time at the sloth encounter, as well as just generally wandering around the zoo. What a great place!
The experience felt special.
It was a wonderful experience. Our guide answered all of our questions.
Loved the sloth encounter and the rest of the zoo. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The experience was extremely entertaining and educational. Joe went out of his way to be more than accommodating to us.
My daughter and I had a blast getting to pet the sloths and giraffes! Everyone was so nice. It was clean. And Joe was awesome taking us to the sloths and giraffes. We will definitely be coming back.
Very memorable experience! The staff were informative & shared a ton of interesting facts about the sloths. We were impressed with seeing the animals up close throughout the exhibits.
