The first thing you notice to walking into the gift shop/store is the overwhelming scent of cat urine. The animals all were in too-small exhibits, and did not seem happy. The wallaby had no shade, the bears had no room to play or even take a bath, the alpacas had matted down fur and looked as if they needed baths,... More

Keeo driving by. The canyon is the best attraction. I feel bad for the animals, they deserve better. Smelly,dirty, rude staff, and the feeling of needing a shower if you visit this place!

If those three things are something you're interested, then feel free to stop. Otherwise: KEEP DRIVING. We were on our way to the PA Grand Canyon and saw these "rustic" signs. As a biologist, I am always excited for any zoo: large or small. Before we crossed the road, we could smell urine. At first, my husband said "Oh, it's... More

Was not impressed with this zoo. Was not maintained very well, areas in the zoo were run down and in bad shape and some animals looked unkept and not healthy to say the least. Reminded me of something out of a Stephen King novel.

Front entry and gift shop to this roadside zoo smells of cat urine. The two bears that they have are kept in horrible enclosure; too small, cement floor, rusted iron bars and water tubs too small for animals to get into and cool off. Cruel confinement. Bears pace continuously out of complete boredom. Enclosure in full sun. Tiger in too... More

Visited on July 15, 2014. I echo many of the other reviews. Cats everywhere along with an extremely strong cat pee smell-especially in the 'gift shop'. The owner was nice but the place is poorly kept. The animals and facility need help. I thought several of the cages were too cramped (bears, tiger, fox, kangaroo to name a few). It... More

I was born in Wellsboro. Was raised 30 miles north of Wellsboro. I visited Animal Land many times as a child. I have not lived in Tioga county for some 26 years now. I visited Animal Land in 2000 and it was as I remembered it. I now live in Florida and visited Animal Land on July 9, 2014, while... More

We've been visiting the Wellsboro area and the Grand Canyon since 1971. Animalland was our favorite place to take the kids. We've been back a few times recently with the grand children and it''s not as enjoyable as years ago. Might be us, maybe we're too familiar with it! Ity's definitely worth a visit.

The minute we stepped on the porch the gift shop smelled "animal"! The paths are definitely not handicap but easy to trip or slip on. Path out in the woods made you keep an eye out for rattlers. I was shocked at the condition of the animal quarters. The place was filthy dirty! Disgusting! The poor Bears did not have... More
