We have visited The Wild a few times only being a short drive away. They have added a few new animals this year (Ostrich, Wolf, Giraffe). At $9.00 per adult and $8.00 per child over 2 (plus $4.00 at the Gate or $5.00 inside if they want to use the bounce houses) it's a bit overpriced for what it is.... More

Although we only live a short distance away, this was our first opportunity to visit the Wild Animal Park. It was a perfect size with 2 small children (3 and 1). Animals appear to be well kept and they were easy for the kids to see. They loved feeding the goats and the giraffe (you can buy the food and... More

Recently heard that this little gem was here. What a surprise to find something like this in a small upstate village. Perfect short day trip for anyone. They have some barnyard animals, which you would expect. However, I never expected to see bears, lions, tigers, gators, a leopard, camel and giraffe just to name a few. Each enclosure has a... More

At this animal park you get an up close view of the featured animals. My nine year olds had a great time feeding the goats, donkeys, and giraffe. We watched the keeper interact with the lemurs, bears and leopard. We learned interesting facts during these interactions. I have never been to a zoo where you could actually see all the... More

The animals were amazing to watch! They actually were very playful and energetic! Large variety and very well kept. Feeding the goats, deer and giraffe was definitely a highlight. It's very expensive for such a small zoo - $9 adult $8 child. Skip the bounce house...the teens there don't monitor the children and allow too many up at once. They... More

We spent the afternoon here with our 2 and 4 year old grandchildren. What a nice place for children to visit! The animals are well-kept and their spaces look clean and well-shaded for the summer heat. Children can easily see the animals and feed some. Feeding carrots to the new giraffe is a favorite! There is a nice bounce house,... More

If you're looking for something to do on a Saturday or Sunday, take a drive to The Wild in Chittenango, NY! A family-owned zoo, they are building on slowly and thoughtfully. They have a great variety of animals from goats you can feed (for a small fee) to alligators and tigers! The animals are close to the pathways so you... More
