Fun time, Exotic Animals

I was here with family and friends last weekend. It costs $10/pp, plus $5 if you want grain (food) to feed the animals, which I recommend getting. The safari is drive through, but... read more

After arriving @ around 11 we had to let our toddler loose at the amazing playground they have. Everything is super clean and in great condition. Afterwords we checked out the museum and the store before heading into the wild. The place is much bigger than we expected but we enjoyed every part of this place. One recommendation is come...

I had high hops for our visit but was disappointed. First there is no need to by the animal feed since the animals are already eating the same thing. The roads to travel through the park have some serious pot holes so unless you have a SUV I would not recommend driving your car through. The baby animals at the... More

Hadn't been in several years. Brought my grand-daughter and she enjoyed it. From an adult perspective it could use some TLC! She really loved bottle feeding the goats! Drive through didn't have too much but then saw a big herd of white tails which was nice. You can buy food at the front gate to feed the animals along your... More

Great hidden treasure in Goshen Connecticut. They have tons of animals from bison, ostriches, elk, zebras, antelope, ostriches, water buffalo, deer, and much much more. Once you've finished your adventure you can stop into the discovery center which has many animal dioramas, an extensive gift shop, a huge live reptile exhibit which has snakes, lizards, and turtles. This is a... More

I was here with family and friends last weekend. It costs $10/pp, plus $5 if you want grain (food) to feed the animals, which I recommend getting. The safari is drive through, but you can get out and walk around. They have hundreds of animals, many of them exotic and indigenous to Africa or other areas of the world. I'd... More

Pastured in a former dairy farm, herds of animals from six continents roam, feed and interact in a natural environment. This is not a "zoo" in a traditional sense. There is no attempt to have a "Noah's ark" variety of display, there are no predators, you will not see elephants, camels, or rhinos. Most animals are suited to live in... More

We went as a joke with our good friends, but ended up unexpectedly enjoying our afternoon at Action Wildlife. After a really long explanation of our different options to tour the park from the verbose gate attendant, we opted to go to the visitors center first where we enjoyed posing for pictures with taxidermied exotic and North American fauna featured...

Who would not love to pet and feed a zebra? We had a great time walking around enjoying the animals and seeing them in a close to natural environment. The little petting zoo where you can bottle feed the baby animals is adorable.

It's a drive/ walk thru animal "Safari" without much in the way of animals. Our young grandkids did enjoy the playground( we brought a picnic lunch) animals , petting zoo: the museum ( with a bunch of diorama' s )was the most interesting . Save it for last . Don't bother if you don't have kids in this age group... More

This was a nice family outing, but was expensive to get in. You had the choice of driving around to see the animals, or walking.
