For just $11 admission this place was a lot of fun! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and they were very laid back. It’s cool that they can provide a rescue for some animals that need it.

I have been to Alaska twice and the first time I didn’t do anything like this. I was actually skeptical that feeding reindeer would be that much fun and that it was just a tourist trap. But I am so glad we did this!! It...More
