We are now open 365 days a year - weather permitting!!
A visit to Zootastic Park is a trip to the zoo that’s both fun and educational. It’s a perfect setting for a family fun day or for large groups, like school groups or summer camps. The park offers something exciting for the kid in all of us. Zootastic Park is one of the Charlotte area's most educational and interactive zoos.
Explore the exhibits in our Western Town and learn about fennec foxes, ferrets and coatimundi. Follow the trail through the Barnyard Petting Zoo where you can interact and learn about and feed the farm animals such as singing dogs, donkeys, porcupines and goats. You may also see the camels, kangaroos, potbellied pigs and the mini horse! Continue down the Safari Trail and visit the lions, lynx, lemurs, gibbons, hyenas and more! Load up on the wagon ride and go on a further adventure to meet and feed (and pet some) wonderful creatures such as zebras, wildebeests, watusi and more camels (HIDE YOUR FEED CUPS). After the wagon ride, make sure to visit the tigers as well as Melman and Jigsaw, our giraffes! (save some food for him)!
Zootastic Park is fantastic fun that’s both affordable and educational. Host a birthday party, bring a school, church or summer camp group or hold corporate events.
We look forward to seeing you very soon!
