I'm not sure if they've made enhancements over the years, but this place was much better than I remembered from a visit about 5-7 years ago. It's a great place to take young kids for a fairly good value. We didn't visit the museum but...More

After arriving @ around 11 we had to let our toddler loose at the amazing playground they have. Everything is super clean and in great condition. Afterwords we checked out the museum and the store before heading into the wild. The place is much bigger...More

I was here with family and friends last weekend. It costs $10/pp, plus $5 if you want grain (food) to feed the animals, which I recommend getting. The safari is drive through, but you can get out and walk around. They have hundreds of animals,...More

Pastured in a former dairy farm, herds of animals from six continents roam, feed and interact in a natural environment. This is not a "zoo" in a traditional sense. There is no attempt to have a "Noah's ark" variety of display, there are no predators,...More

Who would not love to pet and feed a zebra? We had a great time walking around enjoying the animals and seeing them in a close to natural environment. The little petting zoo where you can bottle feed the baby animals is adorable.
