Lions, Tigars and Bears... no really I pet them all (cubs of course) and held an opossum, two kinds of racoons I got to pet! Then also a fox and skunks!!! The only thing I wish was that the enclosures were bigger... but it was soo awesome to see the animals up close. What an amazing stop on our trip... More

I went here as a kid and wanted to take my daughter. The selection of animals is fantastic. My daughter got to pet a 3-month old tiger cub and a 1-year old red fox. There are deer, goats, and peacocks running wild around the park and will come up to you if you buy the food in the gift shop... More

If you like animals, this is a fun place to walk around and not only view but also interact with some animals. We got to pet a baby bear, which was a very memorable and unusual experience! When you are lining up to do the interactive animal petting event, stand at the left side of the viewing area to get... More

Don't be fooled by the less than impressive looking building from the outside. Inside awaits a pretty spectacular collection of exotic animals and you get very close to them. There are free roaming goats, donkeys, llamas and deer that are happy to eat feed right from your hand. The highlight is the animal presentations as you will be able to... More

Better than going to a zoo. I was afraid that the animals were being exploited but not really. It was the tourists that were being rude. It's not a rescue park but simply a wild game zoo that you can get up close to some of the creature. We asked lots of questions and all were answered. We learned quite... More

Best time kids had in awhile! Animals were friendly and brought joy to be able to get so close to them!

I went with my daughter, and had hesitation to go in, yet did anyways. The baby bear, lion, and tiger were on a chain to be petted. The cub had a scrape on it's nose, and when asked a number of times the "keeper"just kept saying it got hurt. The keepers were definitely told what to say and what not... More

This was a wonderful place to spend a relaxing few hours - we had a chance to pet a baby bear, lion and tiger. The staff is very friendly and even though it is a litte pricey for the admission (17.50 for adults) I really think it was worth the chance to pet the baby bear!

I'm no bleeding heart vegan...but this place is terrible. Many animals appeared extremely anxious especially those forced to mingle with humans. I watched people pick up baby animals only to have the mother go bunts all the while the people thought it was so cute. The handlers don't seem to have any actual knowledge or education about the animals. I'm... More
