  • Great zoo! A place for kids & adults alike! I love the feeding tube & open feed areas. The shows are great & the alligator enclosure is awesome. Worth the price! 
  • We typically take our annual trip to the wild during October. The weather is usually cool enough that the animals are awake and active. Once you get past the sticker shock (admission, feed for the pet...  read more »
  • I very well run and clean wildlife sanctuary. It is not your normal zoo because you can feed many of the animals, including the Emu if you are brave enough! Feeding the giraffes was a highlight. They ...  read more »
  • Have visited several times and can honestly say I love it more than going to our zoo in Syracuse. The animals are taken care of so well here. They're not confined in tiny cages like some are at the zoo. You don't find the animals in the park pacing like those in the zoo do. They also have animals the zoo doesn't have and seem like they're always adding new animals to the park. The owners of the park are so nice and friendly. It makes it more of a personal experience that they're out and about mingling with the public. They also have a petting zoo that the kids love. You can actually have an experience of holding one of the animals and having your picture taken for a small fee. For me personally, the only drawback I find is the bounce house. Once the kids see it that is all they want to do. When it's a hot summer day the bounce house is extremely hot and "burns" them. Too hot for them to use, which makes for very upset grandchildren. Other than that, it's a wonderful place to go for a wonderful experience to see wild, well cared for, happy animals! I would definitely recommend!

  • My family and i enjoy this place. However the staff are rude and reckless. While we visited we had 2 friendly staff and the reast were rude. There were 2 staff screaming about parking as we pulled in one of which made me load back up my 3 kids who are all in carseats cause he did not like where the other staff put us. Then once we got in there staffing must hate to walk cause they all drive around reckless on a gulf cart one of which came around a corner like a race car driver and almost hit my one year old that was walking with me.
  • Great place. It was cool to be able to get so close to the animals. I would say it's a lot different than the zoo. I was impressed with the quality of the constructions and cages there as well as the variety of animals. Some of the cages felt a little small for certain animals but it seems like the did care about keeping them happy. A little pricey, but far more interactive than the zoo since you can feed the animals here which is great for the little ones.
  • This petting zoo / zoo is amazing! This was my first visit and I was very impressed. The grounds are very well maintained, from the restrooms to the exhibit walkways. The animals are all well taken care of and they all have very nice enclosures. There are hand washing sinks throughout the park walkways to wash in after petting and feeding the animals. I enjoyed everything about the wild and 100% will be returning. Hopefully sooner than later, well done!
