Large park with a range of African animals such as monkeys & ocelots, plus shows & tours.- Google
"We had some hamburgers and hot dogs and the Ice cream was so yummy."
"Gave us a discount for the excessive wait if we did just the walk through."

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the park. It was a lot of fun feeding the animals. At first we thought we bought too much food. (don't worry it's never too much) we're in our 40s and had as much fun as children do. We captured a lot of good pictures and hilarious video's from our phones. The staff there are really friendly people. We drove back a couple weeks later to purchase a stuffed white tiger from their gift shop. We plan on going back again with a few more people in the car. It was a very pleasant time. its fun for kids and adults as well.

I WILL never go there again. I'm surprised it's even still open. Their animals all look sick. The cages are way to small. I went to see the kangaroos and they could barley stand they acted like they couldn't even walk. It was the saddest thing I have ever seen. It's not a fun or exciting experience AT ALL. Very sad. I wish I knew who to contact about the animal cruelty. But I will be finding out.

Neat experience, you can feed the animals from a cup (provided) in your car and all of the wildlife animals are extremely friendly. Do not open your car door. The walking part of the wildlife exhibits had all of the animals in cages, except for a few exhibits, and it was not that great. The restrooms were less than desirable to use and that was the only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Search online for discount tickets. Would go back again. They do give you a hang from the mirror admission card in addition to a receipt that has a massive discount on the back of the card also.

Loved this place. The animals come right up and stick their heads in the windows to say hi....feed me please. Bring extra carrots or cash to buy them, a lot of animals to feed here. They are all friendly and so is the staff.

Overall if you haven't been you should definitely visit. My family and I have to drive over two hours to visit and still make the trip. Yes there can be a small wait but the experience is unforgettable. When we go, my family and I typically get there late morning early afternoon and the animals are pretty hungry and wanting to eat. I recommend buying the carrots, that is truly what will draw the animals to your car the fastest. Although, the cup of pellets they give you will eventually draw some animals the carrots definitely do a better job. You can circle around as many times as you wish, so if you want to try without carrots and then change your mind you can! Do not bang on your car to get animals attention as this just deters them from you and those behind you. They do have a free vacuum before you leave to clean up pellets that may have fallen into your car. It's a good vacuum and I would recommend, if you have the time, to take advantage of it! We have no small children so we can not speak to that portion. I see many people who are saying they had a bad experience, I think part of this would come from staff rather than the park it's self. I would still recommend it.

I was glad I had a free coupon. It was unique. Don't take a nice car it could get damaged and you will have to run it through the car wash twice. Better to take a big Beat up vehicle. Some of the animals are huge. Overall the kids had fun

This place was pretty cool. My 4 year old loved the drive through and walking area. Word of caution, some animals have horns and some like to nibble your car if you don't feed😉. We had plenty of food we bought there though. The giraffes and zebras we the best part. Though having the llamas stick their heads in the car was awesome. No five star since some of the staff seemed less than pleased to be there. Also, used a Groupon for cheap entry.
