This was on our places to go with the kids this summer. Just so happens to be where we went today for a kindergarten field trip. I was really impressed. The kids loved that they could feed the animals. There are so many different animals the kids can see. Walking is minimal. I plan on going back with the rest... More

Went here on Mother's Day with 3 adults, 2 children and 1 infant. Wasn't sure what to expect however, everyone was delighted with the entire experience. The wagon ride through the farm was eye opening! The little ones loved feeding the animals from the wagon, each stop more exciting than the last. Ride took about an hour. We visited the... More

If you have kids, you need to get to this place! We made it a point to stop here on our way back from Buffalo and Niagara Falls. I found this place purely by accident. It was listed on a website as a great thing to do with kids in the Buffalo area. Anyway, it was great. What a fun... More

Went on a sleigh ride February 21 with 6 friends. The sleigh held 10 and we had another couple with us. It was a nice sunny day with it snowing very light a perfect day. I called ahead for reservations and when we got there we all paid for our own. The ride was about 45 minutes and the horses... More

Have been here several times for dinner and most of them were not impressive at all. How do you screw up eggplant parm?? Seriously?? The gravy over the pork roast tasted like dirty dish water. The buffet they had for Christmas last year - desserts looked like they had been trampled over! I can handle the food in the bar... More

On our way back from a photography trip to Letchworth State Park. We discovered the Hidden Valley Animal Adventure. What an awesome surprise. The entry fee was quite reasonable (about 15 dollars) and the place is absolutely beautiful. It includes a petting farm, a ride in a wagon through the animal reserve, a large fish and bird pond as well... More

Located outside the city hustle and bustle, this is a great place for adults and kids. We have had season passes for 1 year now and it never gets old! You see different animals out each time. There's a trolley ride and petting zoo. 2 restaurants-we have eaten at both, the lodge is great for an adult only night, a... More

We decided to take a sunny day to enjoy the outdoors at Hidden Valley Adventure Park in Varysburg, NY. The park is a growing gem similar to African Lion Safari but you ride a tractor driven tram with a guide that tells you educational information about the animals. The tram stops to let you feed and photograph up close as... More

It's a scenic drive to Varysburg and seeing all the animals was very fun. There are so many! My kids really enjoyed how close the animals came to the trolley. Feeding the animals is a lot of fun too. I would love to come here for a wedding sometime. It is a little pricey but you get a lot for... More

We visited Hidden Valley on a Saturday in September. We arrives just prior to 10 AM and were able to catch the first trolly ride to see the animals. The trolly was not full and this provided a nice vantage point to see the animals. I would suggest getting there early as the trollies became more packed as the day... More
