It seemed like a very long ride to get there, but it was sure worth it! We visited the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium earlier this summer and it was nice but, we enjoyed this much better. If you have a pass to the zoo you get a 50% discount on your tour! You can choose what kind of tour you... More

What a nice visit to the Wilds. I am familiar with the good work the Columbus Zoo has done improving the Zoo and experience there, but wow. The Wilds is a very impressive project. The land is near perfect as it was once a strip mine waste land. Great to see them trying to repopulate and save threatened species. Thanks... More

We had a great time on the open air safari tour. We saw tons of animals on this beautiful August day. Despite the heat, it was cool and breezy in the shade which all the animals enjoyed! We liked the ostrich (Chicken Wing), the cheetahs, the giraffes, the camels and the rhinos the best. We, like our great guide katelyn,... More

This is our third visit to The Wilds and we had a wonderful time. Our guild was knowledgeable, funny and would answer any question the group brought up. This was our first trip with our 5 year old granddaughter and she enjoyed the close up encounters with the camels, ostrich, horses and other endangered animals. Strongly recommend a visit to... More

You never know when an animal is going to poke it's head in the bus. The ostrich kept pecking on the side of bus. We did the open air safari and enjoyed it. The animals are in their natural habitat. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

This was our first time zip-lining and afterwards were wondering why we waited so long. My husband and I are in our late fifties and were a little apprehensive. Though our guides Gracie and Josh put our minds at ease, they were "Great" We can't wait to go back in our "sixties"!!!!

Our trip to The Wilds today was our first time there and let me just say we will definitely be back! It was so awesome to see the animals in their natural habitat, especially when they get right up next to the bus sticking their heads in! We had a rhino, camel, and an ostrich come right up to us!...

I loved this zip-lining course. Avoid on a windy day. The wind slowed me down and I got stuck :( but even with that experience I loved it. The ziplines are longer than hocking hills canopy tours, if anyone's been there. The tour guides, Grace and Joshua, were very fun and encouraging. AND you get a fantastic view of the... More

We did the zipline tour, horseback riding, and the open air safari. The zipline was very good, Amelinda and Josh were really good tour guides. They helped one of the people in the party get over her fears and made the "zipping" enjoyable for all. Good distances between stops so you could work up some speed. The horseback riding was... More

Open-air Safari was amazing! We were able to see just about every animal in the park. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. Some of the animals looked like they were posing and came right up to the truck. Very fun day and highly recommend going at least once a year!
