Waccatee Zoo, Myrtle Beach Reviews
Pros: Lots of diverse animals, including babies, so much fun to hand feed them, inexpensive, natural setting. Animals seemed healthy. Cons: An old fashioned zoo with lots of cages, making it hard to see and take pictures of some animals. Main building is a bit smelly. Staff not too friendly. Some animals in small cages seemed wrong. Overall, had a great half day there and would go back. It's all about feeding the critters!
If there was a "0" rating I would choose that!! These poor animals are in awful enclosures and they have no room. These wild animals should NOT be exploited like this and you shouldn't pay for this. If you really love animals then they need to be respected from afar. This place displays nothing but ignorance!!!
I’m urging you to retire all the animals at the Waccatee Zoo to reputable sanctuaries. For years, animals have been documented pacing, swaying, and even biting themselves, which are all signs of psychological distress. They deserve more than to spend their entire lives on display for entertainment—they deserve to live in habitats that meet their individual needs. Thank you for your time and consideration.
It was a fun day! My wife and I brought our 3 girls and had a great time! We live locally and our 2 oldest visit for field trips during the school year! The "farm" atmosphere makes this place. Way more up close and personal! All the animals were fed and watered, and there was plenty of staff around the entire farm! Well worth the price and experience. P.S I'm not a friend or family to the owners and had a great trip, staff was polite and courteous and we will definitely return. P.P.S Animals not only had food and water, but in the short time we were there, we saw about 20 people with 5lb bags of feed generously keeping the animals well fed!
A bit taken back with how filthy the entrance is. You walk into the building and the women are just sitting there WAITING for the next customer. Not an really busy place , they could be dusting the tops of the snake cages, cleaning the multi layers of dirt off the displays. fact: UNLESS YOUR IN A DUMP TRUCK OR GARDENING-DIRT DOES NOT SELL! Regarding the animals. They did look healthy enough but it bothered me how most did not have any water. It was 84 today. It seems to me if the zoo fee was raised to 15 a person, it could cover the cost of 2 to 4 employees to keep the grounds trimmed and clean. Beatification goes a long way to increase business.
