This is a great place to take the kids. I recommend you don't ride your car in, but take the wagon as the buffalo have been known to dent the cars. There is a good assortment of animals and a great picnic area.

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
