The vision of a local North Carolina man, Zootastic Park sends animal lovers on an educational, interactive journey with an ever-expanding selection of exhibits, attractions, and activities. Owner Scottie Brown—who, along with his family, has been working with exotic animals for more than 30 years—transformed his dream into reality in 2009, when the zoo finally opened its gates after several years of construction and growing inside a kangaroo pouch. Today, the zoo's themed areas, such as Western Town and the Barnyard Petting Zoo, let visitors explore reptiles, farm animals, and exotic beasts including antelope, birds, and tigers who go by the names Sasha and Jasmine. Zootastic Park also hosts or furnishes animals for special events and can provide an exotic feel for events including birthdays, weddings, and corporate gatherings. When winter rolls around, the zoo morphs into a wonderland of lights, complete with an appearance from a Santa Claus who is clearly just a zebra wearing the sheep's cast-off wool.

“This was so well worth the money and the Groupon coupon was a very good savings. They only take them on Saturdays so call as far in advance as you can because they fill up. Do not miss out on this opportunity to make lifelong memories by petting a baby kangaroo, lemur, baby lion OR tiger (whichever is behaving at the moment), and other such small soft loving creatures. Excellent for children but esp. adults. The whole park is wonderful and no animal abuse or bad behavior to be found. Make sure to get 2 large foods to feed hungry, eager, and friendly creatures on the wagon ride. A total must! And then you can feed the giraffe who is so very sweet. Best money we ever spent!!”
