The younger god daughter and her cousin loved the petting zoo, the teens enjoyed the meet and greets with the animals and the train ride into the larger pens to see the zorse (zebra/horse), the zedonk (zebra/donkey), the zebras and the two baby zebra, and the camels. If your kids are not the port-a-potty type use the bathrooms in the... More

Loved seeing the kangaroos eat from a bottle during the show. I asked how the bears came to be at the refuge, and was told that when the bears were cubs someone unscrupulously charge people to get their pictures taken with them. When the cubs were rescued, they came to live at the refuge. She said all of the animals... More

Most disgusting restrooms I've ever seen. Absolutely horrible. And it's not as big as made out to be. The two ladies working in feeding zoo had attitude towards each other in front of my child and I. Poor expierence. Do not get on barrel ride with young children. The lady spins the trains of barrels around as fast as she... More

We've been to Sharkarosa multiple times now and it just seems to keep getting better! They have a wonderful petting area where you can feed the animals. Riding the bus into the different pastures is always s cool experience though we've been a bunch of times...seems there is always something new or different to see and learn. If you go... More

We brought the kids here on a Saturday morning. Great place to visit! Horses, camels, lemurs, zebras and tons more, all very close up. The tram ride made the entire trip, the tram is a must-do! There's also pony rides, a restaurant, train ride, snow cones and gift shop. We'll definitely come again!

We visited over Memorial Day weekend and it had rained. So the trams weren't running. I had purchase a Groupon well in advance and they honored them. They actually gave me free food because the tram wasn't running. I was a bit disappointed because I feel that we missed out on lots of the park because we couldn't do the... More

Very poor experience. The food and show may be great, but we will never know due to a very rude owner who refused to honor a Groupon. Save your money and save your time trekking out to this place!

We took our grand kids-aged 3 and 9- to Sharkarosa. It was a lot of fun for them. I did not know that there was a pizza place on site or we would have eaten there, The animals are well cared for and enjoyable. The workers seemed enthusiastic and committed to making the experience good for the visitors. . It... More

My son (2.5 years old) loves this Ranch. We come a couple of times a year; there is usually a groupon for larger families but the prices are very affordable (either-way) and my son loves touching and feeding all the animals up close. The "Safari tram" ride is the best - you do not feel bad for the animals because... More

This is a fun little place, that I didn't even know exhisted, even though it's only 30 minutes from my house. I got a Groupon that gave us half off, and it was a fun, cheap little trip. We rode the barrel train, got to see the zorses, and got to feed some animals. We also took a safari bus... More
