  • We had our company picnic here and it was a great family place for it. There are a variety of activities. We especially enjoyed the hay ride out to feed the cows. They even came right up and ate out o...  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.
  • Unfortunately it's a wast of our time!!! We came on a school field trip, thinking that we will have a great time, we only enjoyed the first hour then we had to spend an hour and half waiting in line to order another 45 min to get our food! I mean you should know you are expecting more than 600 people at least be prepared and have more people in the kitchen not just two of them!!! If you want to come to this place make sure you get your food, and drinks with you. Also one more thing I realized they have something wrong with the reviews it's only showing 7 months! When I saw the bad reviews on line I was hoping that was a joke , today I got the truth pack your own food.
  • 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 place is amazing the family has always had fun and all while learning a lot about farm and ranch life. It's great to see my boys forgetting about their phones and having such a memorable time, thanks all the staff for such a great time.
  • 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.
