We visited near the end of their season. This was good because it was not crowded, but a little disappointing because some of the animals had already been moved out. Unusual animals that all looked to be healthy and in comfortable displays. We liked it better than a zoo.

Our family visited in August, heat of the summer but found plenty of shade in the African Plains animal area. Fun animal show and randomly, pig races. Buy the carrots and feed the giraffes. Definitely full sun in the main park, bring your sun screen. Outside the paid park area are little gift shops and treats (lemonade, fudge and ice... More

Great place for the day. Took the grandkids and they loved the interaction with the animals. They have a nice area for a picnic so you can sit back and relax. Did not like the Safari train ride as much, because I had been to one in Georgia that you could actually feed the animals and the giraffes put their... More

Having visited the Deer Park across the street, we were curious about this place. One truth here holds up: places that have large fences blocking the view of what's inside don't want you to see what's inside until you pay your money and proceed inside. This, for you Wisconsin Dells vets, is the former Riverview space. Riverview catered to small... More

It was pricey, but the train ride was worth the price. The animals got up close to the train and my children really enjoyed the ride.

I know that it costs a lot of money to house the animals, but unless you really love animals a lot--which my daughter does--it's not the best use of money for a Dells adventure. My daughter did love it, though, but for the parents it was a bit more boring.

Great family experience and worth every penny! The park has a great interactive train ride where you have an opportunity to feed many different animals, some in an open pasture. The number of big and small cats is impressive and you are able to get much closer and see them better than at any zoo. The kids loved the nursery... More

Lots of interaction with the animals. Much more up front and personal than going to the zoo. Lots of fun feeding the Giraffe and the parakeets!

We had free admission with our stay at the Kalahari Resort, and since it was mid-week during the last week of October and many of the Dells attractions, restaurants, etc., were closed down for the winter, we were very happy to find the zoo still open. I don't even know what the regular cost of admission would have been, but... More
