“Lions and Tigers and Bears "Oh My !"”
Review of Idle-Hour Ranch

Idle-Hour Ranch
Ranked #7 of 12 things to do in Troy
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 July 2016

They may not have lions, tigers, and bears but they sure have plenty of animals for the kids to owe and awe over, parents too. They have pony rides, and when available, they also have camel and elephant rides. There is a nice snack and eating area along with an area you can find great souvinors. Kids can mine for gold and feed some of the animals. I can't wait for summer to take my grandkids. You can find more information on their website. Check them out, you won't been sorry.

Very good time with grandchildren. Animals are very well taken care of. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Camel ride was great and informative.

We took our great granddaughter to see the animals. They had a wide variety for children to see. If in the area, a good place to visit. Since they are outside, they have spring - fall hours.

I visited this place with my family in August and found it to be a wonderfully interactive place. The folks here are passionate about their animals, and obviously do their utter best for them with the resources they have! The animals would benefit from an influx of visitors, as all of the proceeds go to the care and feeding of the animals.

Surprisingly good time. Took our grandkids there (ages 2 and 6) and, while the two year old was scared of everything that didn't look like a doggie, the 6 year old enjoyed feeding the various animals. They had a corn maze opened, and the 6 year old loved that. The two year old doesn't quite get the concept, so she would just run in a straight line right through the corn if we set her down. A nice place to spend a couple of hours. (Even if the "wolves" look amazingly like German Shepard's...)
