My daughter and I had so much fun there. It was better than when the kids was little. New management and people around, they took... More

Wonderful ending for my trip down south. After Mammoth, I remembered this place from 15 yrs ago and had to bring my husband this time. Had a great time with the roos, cute little cava followed us everywhere, but, never let us touch it. The baby roo and momma were my favorite. Loved the Chinese Pheasant. It had great personality!...

They had awesome shows & they taught us several things about the animals they had there. It was an awesome place to go...how many... More

This place was a spur of the moment stop. Worth every penny you pay to get in. Hands on with all types of animals. Parents, big kids and young kids will have a blast. Enjoy your time, and take lots of pictures!!

Took my 2 sons (6 and 10) here kind of in the dark. Planned on goofy zip lines and go karts but they were closed. We punted and went here. Boys started out whiny due to change of plans but that all changed quickly! We got to see a Zebu, a border collie herd a bunch of sheep, a llama... More

We stopped here on our way to Nashville. What a treat - it was so much fun! The cave tour was very nice, and the guide made it so much fun. There are lots of animals and luckily they were all out and enjoying the day. Petting the kangaroos was a very cool experience - they are sooo soft. Feeding... More

Loved interacting with the animals. I could have used more time doing that. It was a little limited.

I had read tons of great reviews and was expecting and fun day with my 7 year old and 9 month old. We were disappointed. It defiantly wasn't worth what it cost to get in. I brought a stroller for the baby, and it was hard to get it around the park. I have a jogging stroller and could get... More
