We decided to do this when we finished at the Natural Bridge Caverns. We had a coupon which saved us a few dollars, but even still, it was well worth the trip. It's so cool to have animals come right up to your car window to get kibbles. They had a pretty good variety of animals there, though there were... More

We have been numerous times and while it is fun you really never know how many animals you are actually going to come into contact with. Even with coupons, it still cost $79 for two adults and three kids to go for a couple of hours. I have always believed they should charge by car and not by people in... More

Awesome experience, really! Great overall experience, make sure you get there early, animals are already hungry and waiting to be fed. they will come up really close, but its fun, and well they are all friendly animals. they will get noisy specially the zebras, but they just want food. so buy some extra bags, which are only sold in the...

The trip out to the ranch is a short drive from IH35 and well worth the trip. Once you arrive you can purchase food for the animals so when you are driving through you can feed them. Very nice petting zoo for the kids and adults alike but don't forget to stop by and see the Lemurs and Giraffes as... More

Visited here on 01/31/16 and the weather started sunny cool and crisp in the 60s warming up to near 80s. We arrived around 10 and it was sparsely attended, only 2 cars in front of us to check in and the weather was cool enough that the animals were ready to mingle and say hello as you drive through. After... More

You drive thru this ranch and the animals come to you to get the food you buy at the front gate. Some of the animals will eat out of your hand. Do not try to feed the zebras. They bite! The Sicilian donkeys turn their heads to the side to collect the food. They were so cute. We all loved... More

I suggest you go early in the morning just like you would a zoo. Want to catch the animals awake and walking up to your car? Be there when the gates open. Plus you will have more time feeding the animals then moving out of the way for cars trying to get through. Buy extra food. We fed everything. They... More

This was so much fun!! My family and I laughed so much! Don't forget to close your window when looking out the other side! They will poke their heads right in! A must see!

Definitely unique place. Could have some more variety in the animals and the pricing is a little expensive, but worth checking out at least once.

This attraction is next to the Caverns. It is self drive tour. The admission gates were slow. When you pay your admission you are given a bag of food to feed to animals. I purchased an additional one for $2. That was plenty for me and my daughter. There is a very diverse selection of animals to see and feed.... More
