CrowdStar has made an announcement on March 12, 2013 that Zoo Paradise is set to close on April 8, 2013. Many fans of the game were so worried that the game would be closing down, along with Happy Island. No new features were released. Zoo Paradise shut down at twelve noon on April 8, 2013. Later on after one week, CrowdStar has added an unavailable screen. The screen has an image of a monkey on the Zoo Paradise sign, along with silhouettes of animals in the background. The message says that the game is no longer playable. This means the player must play one of CrowdStar's remaining games (Happy Pets or Happy Aquarium).
