I would really avoid this place. My wife, 3 1/2 year old daughter and 9 month old son spent a couple hours here in July '09. I think a good way to describe this place is a giant run-down, dirty petting zoo. I didn't give this an overall rating of "very poor" because of the pony ride section. My daughter really enjoyed this part of the park and the worker (who was the only one we saw) really seemed to care about her job and was very nice to the animals.
It was really kind of an odd place...they had really old amusement rides that were rusting and looked about 50 years old, they had those blow up bounce houses that were caked with dirt (I actually saw a little girl jumping bare-foot in one too!), the majority of the animals looked really thin and unclean. They even had bobcats and they had signs on the cage saying "Stay back cats will spray." I was thankful my daughter didn't get to far ahead of me and avoided getting to close!
I paid $21 dollars for admission and a bucket of food for my daughter to feed the animals and this price also included a ticket for the pony ride. In my opnion this is not worth it, hang out on the beach instead!
