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

We've been visiting Space Farms since our children were little - they're now young adults and we old folks still get season passes for ourselves. There's so much to say about this place! Lions, tigers and bears and much more....animals look healthy; they're breeding so that must be a good sign. So far this year there have been too many... More

I guess if you ignore the animal conditions the other aspects of this place are interesting, the taxidermy, the family history, the car museum. However I couldn't ignore the deplorable conditions these poor animals were in, it was heartbreaking. This is the kind of place you hear about a worker getting randomly mauled by an unhappy, frustrated animal. There were... More

LOL this place is like a shrine to it's owners...The place is older than dirt but has an almost quirky appeal. Frankly most of the animals should be removed from the place...they don't look very happy. I don't think they are doing anything illegal regarding the animals but honestly it's kind of sad to see them they way they are.... More

Loved it! Closet interaction than any zoo. It wasn't crowded and being spacious and open you didn't have a bunch of kids or groups to compete with. Animals were all friendly and willing to interact with guests. Love the fact you can buy feed for them.

Very pretty country setting. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The car museum is a must see for anyone...enthusiast or not. The Bears are great as well as the rest of the animals. Best part: you get to feed the Bears and deer, chicken etc.

Do not go with kids on a hot day, farm/zoo is very large! Animals vary from very exotic (like Lions and alligators) to popular farm chicken and ducks. Pricey ( $80 for a family of 5). Pizza was cheap and delicious. Overall, nice experience.
