Welcome to Tiger World in Rockwell, NC

Visiting Tiger World!

Lil' Wayne playing with a Pumpkin!

We are open everyday 9am-5pm except Wednesdays. You and your family can come to walk around anytime we are open. Tiger World is like a natural wilderness hike with pathways of rock and grass. Please consider this when bringing strollers or wheelchairs. We are committed to improving our facility and want everyone who visits to have an amazing experience. During the week we offer scheduled guided tours where an animal handler walks you through the park and teaches you about all the animals. This is great for schools, church groups, daycares, and anyone who wants to have a more personal experience with the animals. We also provide picnic areas that may be reserved for Birthday Parties, Meetings, and large groups. Send us an email or call us if you would like to schedule a tour or reserve our picnic area. No group is too small, contact us for details.

You can also feed some of the animals including the monkeys, bears, and birds with our $5 feed bags.


We’ve held our admission prices constant since opening in the summer of 2008. Unfortunately due to Tiger World’s increased costs of animal care, veterinarian care and maintenance we need to raise admission prices to cover these costs. The new pricing begins Thursday, January 1. Thank you for understanding.
