Very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Outstanding place for kids on all ages. Currently I am sitting at Porkchop down eagerly awaiting the pig race. The park is also a drive-through safari allowing you to feed animals from your car

My husband and I took our 5 year old granddaughter to African Safari last weekend. It was so much fun driving through and walking through the park. It was exciting feeding the animals. It was cute how the pretty llamas and deer came up to the car and poked their heads in the window. It was funny and a little... More

Ok, so you hear about these places and get kinda skeptical. Well we plunged in and went for a ride after Cedar Point . We have 2 small children and my goodness were they in awe the whole time with animals sticking there head in the car, and a WHITE BUFFALO fully in the front window drooling and slobbering on...

Been going for 10 yrs place is busy around 12 to 2 so get there early or mid afternoon. It was a cool Aug day so the animals were not happy like us when the weather changes 20 degrees. We did a member pass for 4 for a year, pays for itself either going 2xs or using it at other... More

We visited only the drive-through section of the park -- park seems a misnomer -- the grounds are primarily open range, and the attraction is obviously the animals wandering loose and not the grounds themselves. And the animals do wander - -they block your pathway as your are driving in order to circle your car to get to the windows!... More

OMG! If you want a great laugh this is the place to go. My husband & I, who have no children, were planning a trip to Ceder Point. A lady at work told me about this place. I begged my husband for weeks to go but he refused to drive his new car through a place like that. The day... More

So much fun. The animals know that a car means food, therefore, when on the open range area, they run to you. Sometimes it can be hard to get away because their cute little faces beg for more. Be careful to save your carrots or buy more before you get to the giraffes. There are 2 additional carrot stands in... More

We visited the park with the intention of just visiting the walk-thru side of the park. Well, we weren't very impressed with this part as it was pretty small, and they didn't have that many animals. They did have some unique ones, like the white alligator and the camels. Our 18-month old was able to enjoy the monkeys, the pig... More

Very slow day for park as most kids back in school. Nice to be able to explore without crowds. Animals have no shame and will put as much of their body as necessary into your car to get food which is hilarious and surprising. I loved the llamas and the bison. Feeding animals is expensive and carrots go quick. Spent... More

It was a blast. Car may get a little messy but you get animals up close and personal. They are friendly and it is so much fun. Great family fun. Can enjoy the car ride and the walk through zoo. MUST feed the animals. May cost a bit but way worth every bit of it. Overall very affordable and fun.
