"My experience at the zoo"
June, 2016
The zoo didn't cost a lot, and they had a lot of animals. My favorite was the screaming goats.
Tip: 1. The zoo owns one of the largest snakes in the US.

"Amazing! !!"
December, 2015
The Promise Land Zoo was simply amazing! You are allowed to get up and close to the animals. You can feed a variety of animals and there are interactions with some of the animals. While on my visit I did the sloth interaction, and it was awesome!! An animal lovers paradise. I will definitely be going back!
Tip: Be prepared to be there awhile if you love animals?

"Take a step into fun land"
October, 2015
Branson's Promised Land Zoo is the perfect spot to take the kiddos and enjoy some family time. Each of us had an amazing time feeding the parakeets was an experience my family tells friends about still months later. The babies in the zoo are so sweet and we made life long memories the day we chose to stop in. Great place to go and experience animals, very hands on.
Tip: Wash your hands before and after visiting, it keeps the animals and yourself safe.

"Absolutely Fantastic!"
July, 2015
Everyone in our group loved this place. Yes it's a smaller Zoo, but you can actually pet and feed the animals! They are sooo cute and I got to bottle feed baby kangaroos and a camel on our last visit. We will be back next time to Branson! Oh, and loved the shows too.
Tip: Check the show and feeding times.

"Good family fun"
March, 2015
its a smaller zoo that doesn't take long to get through. I have a 6, 3 and a 5 month old and they really enjoyed it. They have bottle feeding that the kids can do and they have animal shows throughout the day and the kids can ask questions and pet all of the animals. You are able to feed all of the animals there except for the monkeys and carnivores. My husband and I did the live animal interaction and we loved it the trainer is very informative and you can take as many pictures as you want. The thing that I loved the most is that they have scripture everywhere and all the proceeds go back to the animals. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that it's not handicapped accessible or stroller accessible. Instead of having some type of path it's all wood chips so it makes it difficult to push a stroller or a wheelchair around especially because it's very hilly. Overall I would and have recommended this to other people
Tip: Hard to push strollers and wheelchairs around. If you are confined to a wheelchair and can't use a cain or walker then I wouldn't recommend going. Also it' has a lot of hills so if you have bad knees take that into consideration. On the plus must do the animal encounter and the bottle feeding

"Small but fun"
March, 2015
This zoo is probably one of the smallest that we've visited and a bit pricey for its size BUT the kids had a good time and thats what counts! The best part is the feeding of the baby animals and the little "show and tell" where you can actually touch each animal that is brought out. It only took us about an hour to walk the entire zoo, including the feeding and show.

Went to the zoo expecting to spend an entire day or at least several hours. Spent $50 for 2 adults and 1 child to go in. We were there for a total of an hour. That included watching there little show about some of their animals. It was nice for my 2 year old but not worth the money in my opinion.

For the basic admission price your family will get to enjoy the parakeets and that is a wonderful experience! One stick to feed those is included for every admission! You can also pay to get food to feed some of the animals on the foot path. The calves are sweet, and they had alpacas! Adorable animals to see up close here, and that's what you're getting with the basic admission price so there's plenty to enjoy. Plus they do a lot of animal shows at the top of the hour so your kids can get in line to briefly pet whatever special animals they bring out. Those are neat to see, pet if you choose, and learn about. The VIP admission gets you a little bit more but you have to plan to be there for a much longer time as the sign up sheets are likely to fill up and you will spend extra time there. If that's something that works for your family, excellent do upgrade because it's very enjoyable. But do keep in mind the sign up is required and spots fill up fast so even though you sign up for bottle feeding you may not actually get to do that if there's not enough bottles or animals. The walking tours after the shows are for VIP admission only and that was really great. I'm not sure if families are allowed more than one turn at those but if you can do more than one that would be an enjoyable way to spend time here if your group is looking to spend the day. The additional VIP is only for older kids so note your child needs to be age eight or above or they cannot get up close to the sloths for example. The tiny monkeys in the gift shop are fabulous as are the animals you can see in the windows. The snake is huge!!! The staff members seemed to care about the welfare of the animals and the owners are invested in making this place a good place for tourists to see the animals. Overall it's a good place for families to visit. I'm eager to see what the expansion will be like as one of the staff members stated they are presently on seven acres but going to expand to 75 acres.

I have been to several zoos in Texas, Hawaii, and California but this was to me the best one. Small but a great way to see everything and enjoy the animals up close.

We got a Groupon and went later in the day. The parakeets were full from feeding all day but we got to learn and pet some animals from a skink to a hedgehog! Loved it!

My first impression of this zoo was that the fences were haphazardly slapped up. However, the small extras made the difference. The parakeet feeding was awesome, the live animal show was well done--but my favorite thing was how close you could get to the animals. I felt you had really good vantage points to see the animals and see them as they lived. I am looking forward to their very large expansion coming soon. If my family travels to Branson again, we will check it out.
