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

We live about 45 minutes from Hidden Valley and had heard so much about it that we put it on our summer bucket list. On a picture perfect Tuesday we took the drive over arriving in time for a 2:00 p.m. tour. The grounds are beautifully manicured and the scenery is stunning. We purchased our tickets and headed to the... More

My wife and I spent a eye popping stunning day at this "Hidden" attraction. The staff was MORE than outstanding from the first step inside the door. We received a short tour of the facilities and you could definitely see and hear the pride of the employee as he spoke of his establishment. The view was breathtaking, the animals were... More

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I find myself taking the time to write a review because I either thoroughly enjoyed or completely despised my experience. Hidden Valley definitely falls into the former category. I would pin this place in my top 10 family experiences to date. Both my children (ages 4 and 6) had a blast... More

We were going to go to the Zoo- so glad we opted for this! Our son is in a wheelchair and the entire place was accessible for him. He loved being on the tractor ride!

Hidden Valley is a picturesque farm that allows visitors to get up and close with a variety of animals you wouldn't typically see at a zoo. You will get to feed the bison, water buffalo, and a temperamental ostrich on a 60 minute trolley tour through beautiful farmlands. Your visit also includes a smaller farm area where there are more... More

Perfect for animal lovers! A beautiful secluded hillside is filled with exotic animals camels yaks zebra emus and much more. There is a small animal petting zoo type section But the real fun is being pulled by a tractor onto the trails. They give each passenger a large cup of feed and the animals come right up to you for... More

Really enjoy going here. It is so much fun seeing all the animals. They do give you a cup of grains to feed the animals, with the option of purchasing more on the ride. The wagon is a fun way to get around. The animals all come up to you and of course you cannot forget Randy the Camel. He... More

We have visited Hidden Valley several times in the past and found it to be a consistently fun family attraction, with unique animals, the exciting (and occasionally surprising) opportunity to feed the exotic animals and the unusual food options. Our latest visit on 7/3 found some changes at Hidden Valley, some for the better and some for the worse. Seems... More
