not many of the bigger animals left, no elephant, only 2 tigers and a lion... it's kind of boring for the older kids. The rides are more for younger kids. Over all pretty boring, save the money!

One of the biggest zoos around with plenty of animals. They also have a ride side. So you can spend the whole day there.

Children love this zoo. It is a wonderful place to see animals and enjoy the rides. The pedal boats are also fun as well as feeding the deer and the ducks.

The first time I visited York's Wild Kingdom was over 60 years ago with my cousins. It is still a wonderful vacation spot for families. When my Grandchildren come for their summer stay we always go for most of a day. We go to the Butterfly Pavilion, which they love. Walk through all the animals, feeding those they can and... More

We went walking through and took countless pictures. We felt like we were in our own little world there. The people of York are so friendly and welcoming and it made our visit so much fun. I will post pics of this visit for sure. You can tell the animals are so well taken care of. Just such a lovely... More

We can't go a summer without going to York's Wild Kingdom. We love seeing the animals, some of which you can feed, and the kids enjoy the rides and funhouse even though they are dated. It's a great place.

My grandkids (ages 4, 5 and 6) really loved this place. Fun games and rides for their age group. Zoo is fun for them also. Nice break from the beach.

I would say this park is good for the younger kids (4-8ish), not for the almost teens or teens ... they would be bored I think. It's right across from the beach so doing some beach, some park might be good.

This was a great place to spend the day with our grandkids. You can only sit on the beach for so long. This was a nice change of pace for the kids and adults. Highly recommend a stop here if you are visiting in Southern Maine

The butterfly area is best I have been to and there is a good variety of butterflies. Any one that enjoys butterflies, rgardless of age, I believe would enjoy this. There is good assortment of rides for younger children and few more for adults/teens but do not expect something huge like six flags.
