  • 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 »

  • Visited in 2015.. such a great experience.. so many animals .... you can feed them during your drive within the park.. We’ve bought carrots and other animal food items to feed this hungry crowd. Considering the number of vehicles in that drive I suspect they must have big stomach to fill... They have a camel ride also but limited to young ones only...
  • Not worth it at all. I paid $65 for myself, 2 seniors and my 3 year old son. The poor animals look sick, sad and hungry. I ran out of food so one of the animals took his antlers to my drive side mirror leaving some nasty marks. Drove an entire hour to get there because their website is VERY deceiving. They should state on their website that if you go doing this season you will not get the full experience or they shouldn't be charging full prices. I am very disappointed and will not be recommending them. You could have a way better time at the zoo for cheaper.
  • We love going here. We do the drive thru twice every time we go. I try to take as many picture of someone with a buffalo head in there lap. We really miss the pig races. I know they went eductional, but I think they could do both. i try to take a couple cars full every year. We even found a great hotel, with a pool inside and out.
  • Garbage. The animals are walking around unattended in front of the cars and can easily get very injured. The caging areas are small and barren. It's animal neglect for money at its finest. The animals looked hungry, sad, and depressed. Trash holes like this should be shut down because making money should not be more important than the welfare of these animals. Garbage garbage garbage, if you have any respect for animals or animal welfare then you would not spend your money keeping this place open. These animals do not belong in Ohio.
  • My family had a great time. They even let us go around a second time. We plan on coming back in the future. Thanks for the family fun and memories!!!
