The site provides the food for you to give some of the bigger animals, including sharks. Floor-to-ceiling blacklight images of jungles and forests decorate the walls of the indoor, 3-D mini-golf course on site. Admission to the arcade is free with your ticket to the mini-golf course.

  • Not what you would expect. Very small, pricey to get in. Very few aquatic animals. The sea turtle is really the only exciting animal there, few alligators, and a couple of sharks. Honestly not worth the money they charge. Also they do offer a pirate theme mini golf course inside, that they charge you for, and definitely not worth the price. We passed it twice looking for it, so not easily seen from the road. One of the better aquariums​ is located in Chicago called Ripley's Aquarium. That is well worth the money and can spend an entire day there.
  • First off, i will start by saying i agree with majority of the negative reviews on here. The animals are not in cages big enough for the most part but the cages just need to be cleaned! There must not be a cleaning person here but they sure need one, the fish water is so foggy and the shark tank is so dirty on the bottom it made me sad. :( same with the snakes laying in their shredded skin. Some animals like the sting rays also seemed very hungry jumping up on the sides of the water and it made me concerned that they aren't being fed enough. Other than that, i had a really great day here, it was very different to be able to interact with so many animals, i went in the dingo exhibit and that was really a special experience to me, so cute. I loved petting the animals and being so close to a lot of them, this is something i will never forget. As for the staff, there isn't much and Wild Valley (the second location) but the staff there was extremely friendly and knowledgeable in the info on the exhibits to come && it was interesting to hear what is up and coming. Overall, this place has a ton of potential && if the animal spaces were clean then i would have no complaints.
  • Overall the facility was very nice, clean and well managed. There was a lot of variety and different types of animals to see. However upon walking into the wolf and cougar exhibits, my grandmother and I both burst into tears. If you have never heard of the term "zoochosis" please look it up. When you see animals pacing back and forth in their enclosures this is a tell tale sign of stress. The enclosures were far too small with virtually no room for recreation. I do understand that both the wolves and the cougar were in the process of being transferred to a sanctuary, however I believe there needs to be a bigger sense of urgency for this as the animals are stressed. I figure once the wolves are gone this loses the facility an entire exhibit and selling point... other enclosures for some of the other animals were also a little disturbing. I understand that the upkeep and expenses for a place like this are difficult to maintain and sometimes the owners have to be realistic about what they are able to afford. I give this place the benefit of the doubt and am sure that they are doing whatever they can as far as conservation goes. I guess it's to be expected that any place that involves captive animals may have it's downsides for the guests. We did have a good time though and the staff was very knowledgeable and more than willing to address our concerns and answer questions. It's a fun place to go for a couple of hours, just be prepared to see things that may make you sad (as with any zoo). Personally I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's expensive and the enclosures are simply not adequate for a happy animal.
  • DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! This place is a joke! The animal's habitats are small and unclean, the employees are uneducated in animals, it's a waste of time and money. I'd be surprised if the employees had associates in animal science much less bachelors in animal science. The male employees were very unprofessional, walking around with their hats on backwards, baggy pants, thug wannabes. It's sad how pathetic this place was. The good reviews on here have to be from the employees. Way overpriced!
  • We all loved the variety of animals. I (dad) really liked the wolf woods exhibit, and all the poison dart frogs. The teens liked the touch tanks, and my special needs son was fascinated by the jellyfish. And Mom most enjoyed the capuchin monkeys. Nice indoor zoo!
