  • This is a must see for all!!! The drive thru safari is unbelievable how the variety of animals come right up to your car. Yet you never feel unsafe. You can feed them right out of your car. Spectacula...  more »
  • We waited forever to get in here, turns out it is a big, dusty, traffic jam in a loop. Animals are overfed, and not hungry. We were frustrated, and bored to tears.  more »
  • Nice chance to get up close and personal with the animals. Concession food, great! Pig races, you have to stay and watch. Great family entertainment.  more »

  • Had a great visit even on a very busy day for the park; we had a great time. It was hot outside but the animals were very active and had no problems coming up to the car to grab the carrots we were offering. Also, on this visit the giraffes were out and that was neat to watch them reach down to the car and gently take the snack (carrots/lettuce). Check out the walking zoo, too. The parrot there is hilarious. He can mimic the laugh of a man and it sounds so real/authentic. I wonder what the back story is on this bird? Who owned him before coming to the zoo, where did he get that awesome laugh? We had a great visit and will be back with other friends and family, soon.
  • We had a great day with our granddaughter for the day! Very friendly staff and helpful too! Definitely an experience worth having our season pass for! Will definitely be purchasing a renewal at end of this year! Clean and well kept a must see if you have never been also an adventure together precious memories together family time! Thank you to all those working too.
  • Had a blast, got tickets from Groupon for a season pass, then found a good deal on a paint job for the car after we left. Highly recommend this place but take the oldest car you have through there
  • The place had a run down look. You could coax the animals to the car with the overpriced carrots and alfalfa pellets most of the time, but the giraffes remained aloof. Unfortunately, that was the animal my granddaughter wanted to feed. There were no lions or cheetahs. Be prepared for aggressive animals that stick their heads into your car, and also slobber covered door panels. Basically, I thought it was overpriced and underdesigned.
  • My family and I had a blast there. Only draw back was it was slightly over priced for individual tickets, for a family of 4 is the same price for a year pass but the animals were adorable and the entire family enjoyed themselves.
