Zoo Tycoon lets you build your own zoo. Choose from many locations and earn money, buy exhibits, and animals. You can even hire staff to take care of your zoo. There are many animals to choose from and you get to name them. Create mini exhibits or full exhibits – you  decide the admission price.

What will kids like about this game?

There are many animals ranging from macaws to tigers and many habitat choices for them. As long as you keep the animals happy and well fed, money will automatically appear in your bank so you can expand your zoo.

What tips would you give other players?

Although it might be tempting, don’t buy until you have a lot of spare money. Then you won’t have enough money to feed the animals you already have. Last but not least, remember to save your game so you don’t lose your zoo.
