  • My husband and I visited here and we had a GREAT time. The price was great ($6 per person, plus a little extra for a large cup of animal feed), and there was a large selection of animals to see and interact with. I would highly recommend buying a cup of food because the animals were literally RUNNING over to us which made it a lot of fun because you could see them up close. We were impressed by the staff and how friendly everyone was. We were a little intimidated when we walked up because two school busses full of kids pulled up at the same time, but the place was big enough that we didn't feel crowded at all. Such a great place - definitely a hidden gem worth checking out!
  • This place was incredible. What a great spot for a family outing. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the animals are cool and fun to interact with. I can't wait to go back and next time bring a few more kid's!
  • Great chance for your kids (and you) to hand-feed a variety of common and uncommon animals while getting a close-up view of several more. Camels, Parakeets, Llamas, Lemurs, and more. Inexpensive. Bring Sunscreen though, not a lot of shade present.
  • Incredible spot, especially for the price. Impressive variety of animals, and the staff is knowledgeable, helpful and cheerful. This is an awesome place to take your kids.
  • I just love it they have all kinds of different animals you've never seen before at least I haven't seen them
