Very enjoyable time to spend the day with little kids/ Be prepared to pay for food to feed the animals and special tokens for pony rides or small train. Then watched the smiles. Also Ruby's nearby for lunch so you can make a day of it.

Zoomars is a great place to take kids, typically age up to 8 years old. Hands on with rabbits, goats and guinea pigs. Pony rides and panning for gold. Although a bit pricey, it's good for a couple of hours of fun. The kids will want to come back.

If you have little ones they will love this place. You can buy a small tray of vegetables for your kids to feed the amazingly dasile Guinea Pigs, Rabbits and Goats, they go crazy over this. Sounds simple, it is and they have so much fun doing it. Its not a days worth of entertainment but certainly a couple of... More

Took my 2 year old grandson today for some nana time. Cost to get in for an adult and a 2 year old a little high especially given their attention span. On top of $18.00 for admission, food for animals, train, horse ride, day set me back about $30.00. Having said that, it was clean, had guina pigs, chickens, and... More

What a fabulous little find! If you have kids or grandkids, this is a MUST for your San Juan adventure! Take the train to the San Juan Depot, and walk across the tracks. This place has LOADS to do and explore. It's clean and well cared for. Pony rides, goats that will eat your shirt, bunnies... then go grab some... More

I have been coming here for years and it's a great place for kids. However, the pricing has been rising. It's 10 dollars for adults and 8 dollars for kids just to get in! The play area has also shrunken. It looks like they are trying to cater to hosting parties.

I must admit to not being particularly impressed with what I saw as we walked to the entrance. After seeing the pricing, I was even less impressed; however, something told me to move forward. I am so glad I did. I had three grandchildren with me, ranging in age from 3 - 14. Our first stop was to enter in... More

We have taken our 4 granddaughters to Zoomars for the last 9 years and if you asked them today - how do you want to spend the morning - they would say Zoomars - ages 2-10yrs old - great spot!

I have taken my grandkids ages 6 and 3 to different petting zoos, pony rides, train rides and other small kiddie places. But this is the place they stated was boring. The $5.00 pony/horse ride was a short one towards the back of a small structure. The $3.00 train ride was 3 short round laps. There were guniea pigs mostly.... More

Today we took the Metrolink to San Juan Capistrano to visit the petting zoo. Even thought we are all adults; it was so fun playing with the animals. A new employee Tristen was so kind to us; he help pick up the baby's so we could hold them. The alpaca were so cool and have beautiful eyes. Great trip!
