The staff was amazing. They allowed us access to pretty much everything despite this being off season and zoo was actually closed to public.
Very friendly staff! I’ll definitely be coming back!
The encounter was good. e526Did not think we would be booked with another encounter appoinment. A little crowded.
We had a wonderful time at the Sloth Encounter. We learned so much from the staff person that was with us and felt extremely welcomed as we arrived a little early and they were more than happy to accommodate us. It made for an unforgettable family memory! We also enjoyed walking around the rest of the zoo after. We couldn't believe how big the zoo was and can't wait to come back in the summer!
We really enjoyed the Sloth Encounter and the animal trainer was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The staff at the zoo were all very friendly and the animals were all very well cared for.
A wonderful hands-on experience! Small, intimate setting. Our zoo employee, Margaret, was fantastic! It will be really cool if/when people can actually hold the baby sloth.
We enjoyed our visit with Hokey and Pokey. Such a wonderful and positive experience for our daughter . I can't wait to come back and do it again . She's even thinking of doing a birthday party there
We had seen pictures of people holding a sloth which is why we booked it. We were disappointed we didn't get to hold or see the baby. But the guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We love your zoo and all the growth you have going on, just wish we knew we weren't going to get to hold them.
We enjoyed learning and actually touching the sloths however the price is rather steep. 10 dollars I think is a more accurate price. One of my sons has sloth as his favorite animal. Otherwise we would not have spent 80 dollars for the expirience.
Needs to be more handicapped accessible, in parking lot and in the encounter. Otherwise we had a great time!
The staff were all very friendly and welcoming! The zoo had a lot more to offer than I imagined, and everything about my experience from the staff, to the atmosphere, and the exhibits were overwhelmingly pleasant. I wish I would have arrived earlier to have had more time there, and I will definitely be back. Spreading the word as much as I can about what a great place this is to visit!
I could not have asked for a better experience and at a fraction of the cost elsewhere. Joe gave us the opportunity to get up close and personal with the sloths, which were everything I dreamed they would be. Not only did we get the experience of feeding and petting Hokey and Pokey, but he made my dreams come true by letting me hold Flash. Nothing would have made this experience better. I love the Indian Creek Zoo and cannot wait to go back. Thank you Joe.
