Oil Ranch is the perfect place to take the kids on a day off! They have games, rides, food, animals, really everything. My kids love the inflatable trampoline type thing that they have, and my daughte... more »

I went almost as soon as they opened so it wouldn't be as hot out. My husband and I took our toddler and he loved it. We didn't do too many things- we went mainly to see the animals. The staff was ver... more »
Ever since I can remember this has been my favorite place to go on a field trip when I was little. Now that I am taking my daughter it hasn't changed. Excellent customer service. Staff is friendly and courteous. The prices are very fair. Kids have a variety of activities to do from horse riding to riding the train. Very family oriented. I love this place.
Oh no! A huge snow cone issue! We planned as a school for a field trip. Paid approx $1,500 for entrance fee with the money from parents that trust us to watch over their best interest of their children. We were told that we could pay for the snow cones at the entrance to avoid full charge. We did. After running, playing, enjoying good weather, we headed to snow cone area for our end of day treat. All 1st and kinder students waited because they had run out of ice. That's ok. We practiced patience. After a few more minutes we were informed that they only had 13 snow cone cups left on our school order. That they had given all kids with red shirts snowcones. So if our classes wanted snow cones we would have to pay. In my mind I'm thinking we have to pay AGAIN. My 1st grade class was exhausted so after a few discussions I opted to walk away and promised my students that I would provide them a treat the following school day. We did not get any reimbursement, call, nothing. I suppose they felt we were trying to take advantage of snow cones. :) This long winded message is not about snow cones. It's about poor management and strategy to ensure proper customer care as well as securing returning customers.
This has been our favorite place to visit with our children. We have came to Houston three times now. There are many things to do here and having over 50+ acres gives plenty of room for people walking around. Even though 6 buses worth of kids where here the day we where you hardly had to wait in line. There was plenty to do and areas for kids to just relax and play. The staff was very friendly and made you feel like their favorite customer. Really grateful we found this place during our last visit to Houston. It is not hard to drive to. Many activities such as pony rides, 2 petting zoos, milking the cow, bouncy area, 2 playgrounds, mining, train, hay ride, and small snack shop. There are also many small activities and play areas. Will be coming back.
Lots of fun for kids. There's a good variety of activities, like cow milking, pony rides, hay rides, mini golf, petting zoo, playgrounds, a train, and a big blob to jump on, and there was hardly any waiting. Most activities are free with admission, but a few (like paintball) require additional fees. Be prepared to walk since there is considerable space between the activities. My complaints: The required wristbands are a bit overkill; I can't imagine there are very many people that would drive out to the country and sneak in. And when you weigh that against the cost of wristbands, the wages of the extra employee to put them on the guests, and the decreased enjoyment of all your paying guests, it doesn't really make sense. They should allow guests to bring coolers. They were lenient on this policy, but the policy is still there. If I'm going to be outside all day, let me bring some water and food. If you're selling good food at a good price, I'll probably buy some of your food, too. Don't fear my bologna sandwich and water bottles. Not to mention, the concession stand was horribly managed – slow line and items were out of stock. Also, beware of road closures in the area during the Renaissance Festival in the fall.
This is a great place to bring your kids. My 6 year old had tons of fun. He really enjoyed all the different things to do. His favorite was the hamster wheel where you could get inside a large cylinder and push it back and forth. They had a couple of petting zoos. The staff was super helpful and friendly. Always there to answer mine or my son's questions.
