Took the family here and wow! The park workers were out of their way friendly. Not expensive at all. You can actually pet most of the animals. "Way better than the zoo!" Said my kids :-)

Must drive through and have folks in back of pickup with food buckets. Animals come right up and eat, we had a buffalo lick the tailgate, it was hilarious. Animals all look healthy and happy and all the visitors, kids and adults were happy too!

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!
