You can drive thru or do the wagon ride which is better as you get to feed the animals up close and personal... It is also safer on your vehicle. So much fun for small kids. We... read more

We took our two year old to Lazy 5 on a Wednesday. We started by walking around the exhibits. There were mostly birds in this section. There were also goals, kangaroos and turtles. There was also one camel. There is a wagon ride but we opted to drive through, as we didn't think our daughter would enjoy the wagon. The... More

Great place to bring the family, and hang out. Take the hay ride and feed the many animals. They allow cars to ride on the same path the hay ride uses, but we prefer the hay ride. Cash only!

take your time going through the driving part. buy two buckets because you run out before the end. Food goes all over but it does vaccuum up, bring your camera its so fun to take pics of this place. Then get out and walk and see the other birds and kangaroos.

Love it, but beware of your cars paint job. Critters will jump up on your car with their hooves. Big Bufflo will stick their whole head in your window. Love it🐻😞🐂🐃🐐🐫🐄🐑 if you have concerns about car and critters go on hay ride.

We had only been in the Lazy 5 literally 5 minutes and a zebra decided to sneak from the backside of my car and stick his head in the half rolled up window to say HELLO, next thing we know he took the window with him! With glass everywhere and a 5 year old screaming in the back the staff... More

Paid almost $50 for all to go in but it was well worth it. This was not what I expected. It was sooooo much fun!! We drove our pick up truck and 3 of us sat in the open back and fed the animals. Had so many laughs watching the animals and feeding them. Spring time is the best as... More

At first I was skeptical about pay more for a wagon ride but then I realized I didn't want my car to get dented up by possible animals. So we did the wagon and it was more enjoyable because we got better encounters with the animals. The ostriches didn't play around with trying to get food haha. Visit if you... More

What a wonderful place and so nice to have in the area as there's not much to do with young children close by. Walking around is our favorite part, seeing the kangaroos and sheep. Just wish they'd offer pony rides like their other location, Zootastic.

My boyfriend and I went here on a date. We had so much fun that It's hard to explain in words. The animals are so well behaved and it's such a fun experience. Would be perfect for families with children! It's so inexpensive as well. At eleven dollars per person and three dollars per feed bucket, you really can't beat... More
