“Little too early to get the full benefit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Only a minimum number of animals to feed. Several looked in poor conidition. Was disappointed since I have visited other African Safari's in other states and compared to them, this one could use a lot of improvement.

“Wild!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was an amazing venture. The whole family loved it. They actually stuck their head in the car. Less the horns of course.

“Bison are in my CAR!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place was amazing. I had a groupon and it was $6 per person! It is their off season. You drive your car through an animal park and you can buy food and FEED them. It was LOL funny as LLamas, bison, deer, etc put their heads in our window. This is one place you MUST go to if you have kids!

“Up close and personal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The drive through the park was great. These animals are looking for one thing - Food. They are not shy about sticking their heads in your windows looking for carrots. One complaint - a 1 lb bag of carrots was $5. Same bag at grocery store was $.89. Be prepared to wash your car after the safari. Buffalo snot is really messy.....

“Great Place but Make sure you go in Summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We decided to go through here on our way to Cleveland. It is a really nice experience but I suggest not going in the off season, only because the walk through part was closed and not all the animals were out in the drive thru part. No giraffes, but lots of buffalo, elk, llama's and deer (oh so many deer). I end up getting Half price admission because I have a membership at another zoo but dont recommend paying more than that in off season because it is not worth more at that time. I would go back, just not in off season.
