Visited this park for my daughter's 5th birthday. Upon entering the park, we waited in line for about 15 minutes before getting to the ticket window. We paid using our Groupon adult ticket purchase (x2), our kids were free and we also purchased a feed package. It wasn't until after we pulled away from the window and inspected our receipt... More

We visited the park last week, July 15, a Tuesday. This second trip was so much nicer than our first trip which was on a Saturday. The Saturday trip was too crowded to do some of the activities, like the camel ride. Our family has a condo on the lake that we visit several times a summer, so we will... More

Born and raised in the area and have never visited. Having a young child now finally broke down and did it. Would recommend searching the net or local sites as it could get pricey without a coupon. We found a good deal as the local grocery had coupons one days for free admission for one party in car and child... More

I had two little tots with me a 2 year old and a 5 year old the drive through was a hit with them and they loved to feed the animals. Love the place but felt sorry for the animals in the drive though they had no real shade and seem to fight to find cover. But the walk through... More

The kids said this was the best part of the trip! The animals came right up to the window, stuck their heads right in the car. Great fun for all ages.

It was a lot of fun for my grandkids and us. My husband is wheelchair bound and can not do a lot of things with grandkids so this worked out well. He just stayed in the van and could see every thing from inside. Was very enjoyable.

We took our 3 year old granddaughter to the African Safari Wildlife Park in Port Clinton, OH. She had a great time, and so did we! The park is very clean and family friendly. We have lived within 50 miles of the park all of our lives, but this is the first time we visited the park. The animals are... More

Would recommend if you're in the area. Wouldn't plan a trip to go just there. Small "zoo" area, drive through Safari was okay. The White Alligator was cool!

The walk through area had lots of enjoyable shows & lovely setting. The children enjoyed the camel ride & the hands-on experiences. The drive thru was lots of fun feeding the animals & the upclose experience. The animal variety could have been better in the drive thru. Years ago, they had more variety.
