  • While it was fun to pet camels, zebras, and other large animals it felt sort of sad to see them just penned up, in the hot weather instead of roaming free in their natural habitat. The cages seemed pr...  more »

  • Best experience ever! We are from Florida and moved to North Carolina about 4 months ago, so we've been to many different zoo in our life time especially because I have a 7 year old son who loves animals. We had such an Amazing experience, all the workers are just so sweet and amazing. Feeding all the animals and learning about them was just such a great experience. I will definitely be back with my family from Florida when they come up to visit next month. We also did the 45min horse ride and it was very adventurous, they made us feel safe the whole time, everything was well worth the price. Thank you for such a great time. We hope to see you again soon. ❤️🙏
  • It was a very cute park. Decent prices. My girls had a lot of fun. Animals looked well taken care of and had lots of fresh water. The workers there were EXTREMELY nice and the pony rides were perfect for my little ones. Highly recommended.
  • Hands down the best petting zoo I've ever been to. The staff was polite and knowledgeable. The animals are all in great health and their well-being comes first. It was a fun time for our whole family.
  • My family had an excellent time. Was able to be very close or even pet a bunch of animals. They had a bunch of baby goats that we could hold. It was worth the price of admission just to play with the goats and dear.
  • This place is awesome with several different types of animals, including Zonkeys (seriously, look them up). You should definitely be an animal lover who doesn't mind a little slobber with their animal-petting experience! Price was moderate but worth the time you can spend.
