Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, Gulf Shores Reviews

  • Very nice zoo! Small compared to the one in my hometown but I do like how you can get up close to many of the animals. There are animals you can feed as well as several different animal encounters. Although it wasn't open they do have a small restaurant in the zoo. They have a small outdoor theater for animal shows. The zoo is moving to a new location that will be much bigger and better than where they are currently. Hopefully it will be open when we go next time!!

  • Small but awesome zoo! You really get to get up close and personal with a lot of the animals. I noticed where they plan to move to a new, bigger facility soon. Can't wait to come back to Gulf Shores and visit the animals in their new home. I highly recommend this zoo for families with children; they'll LOVE it!!

  • A cute little zoo, with a decent variety of animals. Perfect size for taking younger kids through without wearing them out. Lemurs animal encounter was TOTALLY worth the extra cost

  • A small family friendly zoo, this is a fun location to visit if you have young one's that enjoy any and all animals. They have a petting zoo area and you can even pet a baby kangaroo. They have areas to feed some of the animals as well and a small gift shop where you can even "adopt" one of the zoo animals. This is a very small zoo, so you could probably spend an hour or two there if you want. For those that are young couples or older families there are a variety of other things to do in the area that I would recommend. While this could still be fun, it is very small and really tailored to the young ones. We enjoyed it with my neice and nephew but probably would not go back. We did here that they were about to move to a new location with new renovations though.

  • There are a lot of different animals in this small zoo but all of the enclosures are incredibly tiny and multiple animals are alone. I was hoping to have a fun trip to the zoo with my toddler & family but I left feeling so sad for all the animals there. Every animal there seemed sad and alone. I wouldn't recommend this zoo. Hopefully the new facility they are moving to will have bigger and better enclosures
