  • I have been going here for the past 8 years. It seemed to have been better back then. I told feel you get as good of a value for your money anymore.  more »
  • A wonderful experience for families with young children. The petting zoo and zip line are favourites. We have had birthday parties there and the staff are fantastic.  more »

  • Rounds Ranch is a great place to spend a day with the family. There are a lot of activities that are appropriate for all ages. The reason why I rated 3/5 stars is because while they definitely satisfied the Fun Factor, there were a few things bigger things that definitely stood out that would require improvement. They have a brief window of time to buy food and drinks, and this window of time is on a set schedule, if you miss it, you're screwed for drinks - which was horrible for us because we finished our water bottles within the first hour of being there. You do not have any option to purchase refreshments if you miss the lunch window. One of the slides was completely rotted through. While the whole jungle gym was a lot of fun and well built, the maintenance was lacking and definitely a safety hazard. The last reason why I would deduct points from our experience was the lack of supervision at the petting zoo. Families are allowed to roam freely at the ranch, which is a very nice touch, however, many children AND adults, who are visiting and unfamiliar with handling animals, were improperly treating the animals. This was especially true with the bunnies and chicks pen. We had to coach some of the children and even their parents on how to handle the baby animals to prevent the obvious harm they were doing to the animals (unknowingly, of course) due to the lack of supervision. This was very upsetting for us and put us out of the mood for the rest of the day. Luckily we were still able to have a good time when they opened up the water slide at the end of the day. The water slide, peddle carts and the inflated trampolines were our favourite activities and made the day a lot of fun for us.
  • The pricing policy is a turn off.  It will hurt them over time as repeat attendance doesn't happen.  Let's face it, it's a farm turned into children's play area so the attractions aren't technical or awesome.  They are ok.  Pricing is $12 per person.  I'd suggest that $8 would be more appropriate for the level of attraction.  In addition, they make the adults pay the same fee to enter with their children.  There is nothing a parent is there for other than to let their children play, so $12 per parent is not appropriate.  They should not charge a fee for the parents.  Also, if you have a small child (like age 4 and under) that is with you just because they are part of the family but not likely to use the facilities they will make you pay $12 for that child also.  I witnessed a family of 5 (2 parents, 2 young boys, and a toddler) have to pay $67.52 and were obviously stressed about it but had already promised the 2 young boys they would enter so had to pay.  They could get far more value for less dollars just a few minutes away at Wasaga 500 or other attractions in Wasaga Beach.  For this reason I don't rate the place high.  If they changed their pricing policy I would, but as it sits presently the value proposition is not worth the pricing. I don't believe a high number of people return to Rounds Ranch.
  • Drove half an hour to find out that since it rained hours earlier that they closed. Watched a bunch of sad kids and disappointed parents struggle to find another place close by they could go to. Poor business in deed, maybe write online if it's a little moist outside you will close. Because the open every weekend is obviously a lie.
  • Great place for young families to have fun! Corn mazes, jumping pillows, playground and animals are a favourite. Staff is friendly and helpful. It's always a good day at the Ranch!
  • This will be our families 5th year and we are always happy with the friendly family atmosphere and the professional generosity of the employees ;-) Thank you
