Zoo Tycoon Unleashed was possibly the largest current Zoo Tycoon 2 site, with over 25,762 members, five times the amount of Zoo Tycoon Volcano. The site was opened on January 1st, 2004 and had since grown into one of the best fan made Zoo Tycoon sites on the web. The site contained a huge amount of information on both Zoo Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon 2. Campaigns, animals and tips could all be found for both games. In the mid 2000's, many new designers had appeared at the site creating more available downloads mainly for Zoo Tycoon 2, though downloads did exist for Zoo Tycoon. In late 2014, the site silently shut down, all pages leading to the forum now leading to a 'Contact Support' page.


Unleashed had a large amount of staff to watch over the booming population of members it has. Unlike most other Zoo Tycoon 2 sites, most of the staff members were adults. The site was also known for being more strict with rules.
