Our family always has fun at Sharkarosa! With a little one in the group, having the park and splash pad option is great. We were lucky enough to have a lemur encounter with Keegan which was a once in a lifetime experience. They have a wonderful team of keepers that really care. We’ll be back for plenty more adventures!!

Stellar customer service and great mix of unique animals. Our kids had a blast because the staff was amazing. They brought some of the animals closer to us by feeding them by us. They also gave the kids a special treat by letting them hold some of the reptiles. The kids LOVED the animal experiences and the splash pad was a hit in a hot summer day!

Great little place! We love coming here to feed and pet the animals! We try to time it right for the bear and monkey feedings as it's always so cute to watch them eat and to hear all about them! We also love the tiger and Russel the llama! The kids like feeding the zebra, zorse, and z-donk. If you can, get a $100 encounter with the lemurs!! They are absolutely hilarious as they jump on your shoulders and eat out of your hand! The new splash pad is such a treat in this heat too! You can cool off between animal feed times or just spend time getting wet as soon as you arrive then you can dry off as you walk around to see all the animals! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable!
