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

This was our first visit to Hidden valley Animal Adventure. Parking is free and plentiful with handicap parking readily available. As you walk toward the main building it is hard to ignore how well kept the property is, both very clean and well laid out. For anyone needing a restroom, one is available inside the restaurant being passed on the... More

You definitely need to take advantage of visiting Hidden Valley Adventures. Our family has visited several times over the past 2 years and have never been disappointed. Our party includes 3 generations, and each has a favorite. Not only is it fun, it is educational ( the workers know more than most), offers great food options and your visit can... More

I really enjoy this place. I love to take pictures and you cant ask for any more willing animals than at this place. The only problem is trying to get them without people in them but I have gotten some excellent shots here. The fall is the best time of year to go and the earlier in the day the... More

This was just like Jurassic Park -- but with the most boring animals in the world. $70 for a family of four to take a bumpy tractor ride for an hour. We sat on the passenger side of the cramped trolley. Because most of the stops had animal access only on the driver side we were basically treated to splendid... More

This is my third visit and I would still recommend the park. The animals have become more used to the regular trolley stops and feeding but it is still exciting to see them approach. I would suggest sitting on the passenger side of the trolley as this is the side most often approached by the animals. The petting area for... More

Lets begin by saying it's expensive. 2 seniors and one child costs $50 plus we bought some extra food for $1/ cup. The admission covers a tram ride thru wide open spaces that have many, many animals. Elk, Bison, Zebras, Llamas, etc. etc. come right up to the tram and eat the food from your cups. It's a great experience... More

This is was great outing for my family. They have a petting zoo and safari adventure. I would recommend both. The animals are very friendly. While at the petting zoo, a donkey and goat followed us around like we were family. This is definitely a must do if you are in the area.

We were looking for something to do with the kids (13 & 11) and found this place. This adventure is a really great place to spend the afternoon at. You and your family will be up close feeding animals and learning about them. The guides are very knowledgable and you truly get a sense that they love what they do.... More

Just when you think you are lost, you come upon this gorgeous place! The trolley ride was incredible - our family could have gone several times back to back. We bought a lot of feed and had a blast! My kids loved the petting farm. Who am I kidding? So did I! A must do at some point in your... More
