Took 3 great grand children, ages 7, 5, 2. Everyone, even us adults had a great time. Spent 4 hours and the children did not want to leave. The trolley ride was rough but a lot of fun and interesting. Everyone enjoyed feeding the animals. Petting zoo was one of the highlites. Will return when we can take some of... More

Beautiful facilities in the middle of the countryside, but our purpose in going there was not to see a lovely banquet facility, a bar and restaurant facility at another level, waterfall gardens and a lovely landscaped pond. It appears that much more has been invested in facilities than in animals. The small animal area was a big disappointment. The trolley... More

This place is pretty unique. You get a close encounter with all sorts of exotic animals like Zebra, Ostrich, and Yaks. I recommend going here in the fall when it's not too hot and the foliage is at its most beautiful.

We were in the area on a golf excursion and needed accommodations for one night. We came across Hidden Valley and booked the Elk Room. It's small but extremely clean with the most comfortable bed and amazing décor. The trailside Grill & Bar serves outstanding food. So many interesting burgers & sandwiches. We ended up opting for the Elk burgers... More

The Tour through the animal park was great! Camels, Ostrich, cattle from around the world, bison... all approached our trolley to be fed. Fun, close encounters with the animals, even the ostrich ate from our feed cup. The tour is well worth the drive and ticket price. We did not spend a lot of time in the petting zoo, but... More

A unique hands-on opportunity to meet the animals in a gloriously scenic setting. Ride the tractor-driven trolley and meet and feed hundreds of animals --camels, elk, yaks, ostriches, and many, many more. A knowledgeable guide provides all the info you need in this beautiful setting near Letchworth State Park. Fun for all ages. Beautiful grounds, good restaurant, reasonably priced.

Although it took about 2 hours for us to get to the location, it was well worth the drive. We took the safari tour, which takes you on an hour drive through the farm land filled with various types of animals that you can feed. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Despite the heat, and that many of the animals were... More

We had an awesome time! Well worth the money and trip there. Go early in the morning when they first open- not crowded and the animals are ready to eat!

We visited Hidden Valley Animal Adventure this past Friday. The drive into the hilly green pastures of WNY was beautiful. When we arrived we noticed the most beautiful pond with several swans swimming around. It wasn't crazy busy and the tour buses that take you though the animal area run ever 20 minutes so no waiting. Once we boarded the... More

Although the kids had a good time, I couldn't help feeling sorry for the animals- especially in the so-called petting zoo. Almost all of the small animals looked mangy and depressed. We also saw a collapsed donkey with sores and open wounds. Although the large animals were in the pasture area, a huge camel was crammed into a tiny pen... More
