Waccatee Zoo, Myrtle Beach Reviews
The waccatee zoo is different than any zoo I've been too. From first glance it looks small and a little rugged, but when you enter it's pretty large and a lot of fun! You get up close and personal with a lot of the animals and are able to hand feed them! The employees seem nice, however there is a lot of cleaning and fixing up that needs to happen so this zoo would attract more people. I went when it was raining once and it was nearly impossible to push the stroller through the mud. I've also been there when it was extremely hot and I was impressed with how much shade this zoo offers. I've been there twice and will be returning again!
I only gave one star in order to write a review! My husband and I took our 6 year old grandchild and his mom to Waccatee on Wednesday July 25th. What a dreadful place! The animals are being kept in dirty, unhealthy and cruel conditions. I wish I had checked the reviews more diligently before going to the zoo. I read in a few reviews that the conditions and health of the animals are being investigated. My family and I are going to find out who is investigating and add our findings and concerns to whatever complaints/reports they have. Please don't put yourself or your children through the saddest sights I have seen in a zoo, EVER!
I would give 0 stars if I could. Do not bring people or even animals here. The conditions are discussing for both those viewing the animals and the animals themselves. Animals are distressed and neglected. Showing your kids here will he traumatizing to think all animals look like the ones on this condition. Locals all agree that this place needs to be shut down. Do not give them a penny put of your pocket, it will not go to a good cause.
Very family friendly. My 2 year old love it. The price is very good. I must say tho the animals dont look well taken care of some look sickly and stressed and I wish the cages was bigger for them all! Otherwise we enjoyed it
This zoo is so much fun for the whole family. You'll want to go back again and again. The monkeys are so entertaining as well as other animals. They also have a wonderful gift shop.
