  • All the animals were great but the children loved the goats- feeding them was a great experience. The owner was helpful and gave lots of info about the animals.

  • Loved it here. My boyfriend and I had an amazing time here. There were so many more animals than I thought! It looks small from the outside, but you wont be dissapointed! Very cheap too!
  • It's small but Child friendly. My husband and I enjoyed how close we could get to the animals. The petting of the goats was so fun and family friendly. These are rescue animals, so it makes me feel good to see how they are doing in a better environment. There are plenty of snakes to see, birds, monkeys, a Tortoise, and a tiger. We loved the gift shop and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
  • What a cool place! Took our 2 year old there and she loved everything about it! She loved going "through the alligators mouth" to get inside. It was really interesting to see each of the rescue animals stories. Bella the macaque was by far our favorite animal! She greeted us with a smile and showed us all of her tricks each time we passed by her. The goats were fun to feed and one followed us around almost the whole time. The guy whose path we crossed several times (Mark, I'm guessing) was very knowledgeable and friendly. He kept his distance until we asked questions and then responded with interesting facts. After reading the other reviews, I was prepared for a lecture or rudeness but received the exact opposite! Perhaps it was because we were respectful of the animals and their homes. Our 2 year is very excitable and energetic but when she screamed, we reminded her that screaming would scare the animals and she quieted down. We spent probably 2 hours there and only left because it started raining. We will definitely go back if we're in the area again.
  • Made my 4th or 5th trip from the Northern Virginia area to Luray yesterday with my wife and daughter - this time specifically to take my wife through this fascinating place as she'd never been. As usual, most impressed with the level of commitment from the owner (who is very friendly and will answer any and all questions about his animals!) and the young folks working in the zoo. If you find yourself in Luray for any reason and have a couple of hours to kill, this is where you should spend it! Love this place - keep up the great work!
  • V good place for kids to visit. But its a bit expensive for wht tgey offer.
