Fun for kids, and even adults. Feeding the animals is a riot. They've added a sting ray (minus their barbs) as an animal to feed as well. Great place.

You have to pay $7 each to get in, and that includes a BIG cup of animal food. You're not allowed to share one cup - it's $7 each. Totally worth it! We laughed so hard here! Definitely try feeding the Ostriches directly out of...More
