  • My wife and I are traveling across country to South Dakota and stopped in Port Clinton. We included this place using a Groupon for $8, instead of the regular price of $33. That is what it is worth. Th...  more »
  • Love this place!! You buy cups & food at the gate and feed the animals from your car! It's awesome!!  more »
  • Okay, first and foremost, I love this place. I did visit Groupon while planning our visit but decided to pay full price, sort of as a contribution, since I am sure it's not cheap to run that type of b...  more »

  • The African wildlife safari while entertaining, is extremely over priced and is a complete hot mess. To start it was $40 for one car with two adults and that was with a coupon for $3.50 off each person. Secondly, the amount of cars that go through this park causes traffic backups and sitting in a car for 3 hours with a 1 year old was not the most ideal situation. We made do. The traffic moves slow enough through the park (5 mph) that we were able to take him out of the car seat and put him upfront with us. Thirdly, some people acted as if they were the only ones in the park and would hold up traffic for sometimes 10 minutes to feed animals. The animals do come right up to the car and sometimes refuse to leave( the buffalo had his whole head in the car) it was funny and a bit frightening at the same time. Lastly, the walk through safari is a joke, its small, dirty, and lacking in animals that are promised. I wouldn't say to not go, but being there once was enough for me. I would recommend the children be a bit older ( our 1 year old was terrified) be prepared to sit in a car for 2 or more hours ( no way to get out to use the restroom or turn around), food is over priced so buy food and sneak it it in, but multiple bags of carrots, and be prepared to have animal Slobber all over you and your car.
  • Feeding the animals was so much fun! We also enjoyed the walk around zoo park with lots of exotic animals and birds. There were lots of trees for shade along the walking path as well as places to eat and ICE CREAM! At the end there is a nice gift shop that would excite any kid or adult.
  • 3* - the park is small, the feeding area was the most fun, interacting with the animals was great. Other then that section all other animals were enclosed so your only able to look. Fences make it hard to take photos & feeding giraffes consisted of throwing the carrots. Took about an hour to drive through, then we went to the walking area. You can't interact with any part of it, not even the rabbits. To many cages and fences to take photos. The gift shop is large and filled with stuffed animals mostly, I didn't find to much I haven't seen in other zoo's which disappointed me. The park was clean & plenty of staff. I got a membership pass from Groupon which covers most zoos across the country for $55 so cost wasn't an issue.
  • Fantastic, we had a blast! Didn't know what we were in for, but it was fun. Expect the animals to be naughty, we had a bison poke his head in through the window of the car, but it was hilarious. Lines seemed long, but flowed through fine. Poor deer had no shade shelter. Kinda sad there, or at least a water mistier for that area. Had Ice cream afterwards, was great!
  • The kids loved it! I used Groupon so it was more affordable . The animal food was very expensive, and $10 for a 45 second camel ride was also pretty outrageous It's no surprise that these animals are so friendly, they are fed carrots and grain out of car windows all day long every day The kids thought it was incredible, and a little scary when the big white buffalo stuck his head in the car, one of enormous steers also stuck his head in the car. Feeding them was amusing, the little deer reminded me of Jurassic Park I think this would be a great deal for a family with young children that lives near by and wants a season pass . The lasting impression is of alpacas, cattle , and bison. The other, more interesting animals get overshadowed because they are less interactive
