Waccatee Zoo, Myrtle Beach Reviews

  • A waste of time and money. Animals are very unhealthy looking. 90% of it is goats. There even unhealthy. $30 for 2 adults and a 5 year old. Wasted!!!!! Even our 5 year old said those animals were sick. We love.zoos, but don't waster your time.or money here. They sell food to feed the animals, but all the cages say DO NOT FEED!!

  • Absolutely disgusting living conditions for animals who did not choose to be kept in captivity. They are not given decent living requirements, habitats, or proper nutrition. They have kept their Chimpanzee "Chico" ALONE in a cage for over 25 years (induces very stressful psychological behaviors). The owners have been asked numerous times to please retire Chico to a sanctuary to live out his life in peace and reintroduced socially to species like him. Going here only supports the mistreatment of animals. Paying money to enter this "zoo" counts as YOUR vote for the owners to maintain horrid mistreatment of voiceless animals. You will leave sad and heartbroken. Stay away. Tell your friends to stay away. These animals deserve better and the owners of this "zoo" need to be kept in the living conditions in which they pathetically provide for their animals. How they ever got a hold of such beautiful creatures is beyond me. I hope one day justice serves them and they finally release these animals into proper sanctuaries. Again, do not spend money to go here. Boycott this hell hole

  • I am so sad after visiting the zoo today. I went years ago and do not remember it being so horrible. Many of the animals looked sick and their cages were in disrepair. There was broken down equipment everywhere. The enclosures were discussing. They should be ashamed of how the animals looked. The only ones that did not look horrible were the peacocks and they were free range. Hope these bad reviews get them to make some serious changes because as of right now they should be shut down.

  • Unfortunately, this zoo seems like it has had better days. The enclosures are old and dilapidated. The animals run to the fences and feeding troughs when anyone walks buy like they don't get enough to eat. Lastly, the map that they give you is outdated and confusing with the directions wrong and some of the animal enclosures are missing. All in all, it was kinda depressing. The price was reasonable and the staff was pleasant. However, that is the only praise I can give this zoo.

  • This place was very depressing and I am sad to have contributed money to the poor conditions these animals live in. I’ve never felt so compelled to figure out the ins and outs of reporting this type of facility before. All of the “exotic” animals (cats, bears, monkeys) had very small enclosures and were visibly stressed or depressed. They did not look healthy and in general did not look cared for. I am supportive of conservation and wild animal sanctuaries where necessary, but don’t be fooled, that is NOT what they are doing here. We would have been happy with just seeing the farm/domestic animals and birds and walking the nature trail.
