I was to Space Farms about 5 years ago and decided it would be a fun attraction for my now 6 year old grandson. We arrived early and it was on a weekday, so that was great. There were hardly any people there. The admission price for 2 seniors and one child, plus a bag of food, was around $48.... More

Visited on a weekend in August. First, the poor animals have the absolute minimum in care and shelter. The cages are bleak and small, filled with lots of dirt and dust. There really needs to be lots of vegetation, shrubs, and a nurturing atmosphere for these depressed animals. All the animals have no escape from the oppressive sun and heat.... More

Just went to Space Farms with my twin 2 1/2 yos and 4 yo. I'm still thinking about the place. The entrance is really cool with a 12 foot stuffed bear as the centerpiece. If taxidermy's your thing ala Norman Bates, this place is for you! My husband and I were appalled by the conditions the animals live in. I... More

My opinion, over priced on a big piece of land. Not worth the almost $60 for our family of four. Went because we were staying at a local resort. Should have just stayed there. Pay more & get more. I am sticking with the Bronx Zoo for the entire day, not the 1 1/2 hour spent here.

Despite the best efforts of the owners and zoo keepers, this place is outdated and just sad. With so many solid efforts for education, conservation, preservation and research the amount we paid for the entrance could have gone towards better efforts. I hope the bears end tigers end up in better places. We did not ever bother to see a... More

Amazing experience, Space Farms right now has 3 Kodiak Bear Cubs and 2 Bengal Tiger Cubs, we were fortunate enough to witness Osman and Titus, the Tiger cubs being bottle fed by Miss Lori, the owner of Space Farms.

We had great time here - our daughters feed deer, it was fun for them but better experience was feed calf and kids from baby bottles ;-) We were absolutely in love with 2-weeks old tiger's cubs - Zoomama Lori fed them in front of us and she gave us a lot of information about tigers. She is great storyteller.... More

The animals look very sad and just look mistreated. They looked lethargic and hungry. The cages were very small and old looking. The museums were dusty and old.

Went to see the baby tiger cubs and probably won't return. Ticket price does not match the quality of the zoo. Like most others said the animal cages/pens/habitats all look extremely small and run down. They have a large amount of deer living in a caged area with no grass... not sure how that works! The path is through gravel... More

I just took 100 kids for a summer camp trip here. It was fantastic. The animals were playful and the up close experience was truly amazing. The animals looked healthy and well cared for. They had a wide variety of animals each exhibit better then the last. My boys enjoyed the museum of old antique firearms and farm equipment. There... More
