    I won't be much help, but we took
    a day trip to the Columbia SC zoo
    a couple of months ago, and I was
    very surprised that they had no
    screening what so ever. Kind of
    neat, but kind of scary, too.

    I always try to determine similar things before I go new places. I used a few google searches and no security of any kind is listed in reviews or on their website so although I have never been personally I think you will be fine.

    Interested to hear what you found. I remember that it was a disappointing place in 1984, but it was relatively new. I have heard it's a great zoo now. The red pandas and gorillas would make it worth the entry cost.

    I haven't been to the Knoxville zoo in about 6 years, but security was virtually nonexistent. I walked right in with all the usual accoutrements.

    Knoxville isn't a total liberal cesspool. I'll be driving through Knoxville in a couple weeks, I'd be happy to detour and check for you if you weren't going to beat me there.

    Been several years since been to Knoxv. Zoo. Don't remember any sort of screening then; couldn't tell you about now. Nice zoo for it's size and a pleasant trip.

    I took a khar into universal studios in december. They litwrally finger print you, use walk through metal detectors and wand you down.

    I also 'accidently' got a socp dagger through tsa earlier this year. It was in my bag and I didnt want to throw it away. I forgot it was there.

    You can get through the zoo just fine if you try.
