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 days of the cowboys in our Western Town and learn about fennec foxes, ferrets and coatimundi. Your visit continues 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!  Walk down the Safari Trail and visit the lions, lynx, lemurs, gibbons, hyenas and more!  Follow the trail down to 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). You will be brought around to the top entrance where you will disembark and visit the tigers as well as Melman (save some food for him)!

The fun doesn’t stop there! The grand finale of your visit includes viewing our three tigers, Sasha, Jasmine and Raja. You can even buy pieces of meat to feed them! Come and watch them play in their pool or bask in the sunshine as you have a picnic in one of our many picnic areas or play on the playground.

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!
