The is the first time visiting The Wild. It was a brutally hot day but it was well worth it. (Bring drinks, sunscreen and maybe a wet towel and put hats on the kids!)
There were four adults and three children under 10 years of...More
Possibly one of the best small Zoo you can find. Feed cups available for most animals. We went on an early fall day and every animal was out and roaming. Some surprises as many big cats roaming and even grizzly bears. Lots of fun. Don’t...More
My fiancé and I came here yesterday for my birthday. It was fun feeding the goats, camels, giraffe, alpacas/lama and deer. Although I think $12.99 per person for an entrance fee is a bit much to charge for such a small zoo. Honestly, this is...More
We were visiting the in-laws with our grandchildren in Cicero NY. The weather was classic upstate NY fall sunny and cool. Someone had mentioned that this was a must see with the kids so we piled in the car and turned on the GPS. After...More
What a beautiful place! I had the pleasure of visiting The Wild with a group from my workplace. The exhibits are very pleasant pleasing for the eyes, not a single hill in the place, Very accessible for handicapped individuals and strollers. A nice variety of...More
I am so glad we decided to visit. We had heard so many great things about this place. The place is very clean, and small enough that it isn’t overwhelming. The animals are great, and you can feed almost all of them. My 7, 5...More
Great array of animals and all of them SO active. Tigers chasing each other. Grizzly bear playing with a log in his pool. Panthers wrestling. Baby Siamang ape learning to swing. Animals don't act like that when they are stressed. Animals here were happy and...More
We enjoyed our visit, the enclosures are close to the flat walking path making it easy for all ages, strollers to walkers. The site not only allows but encourages you to interact directly with nature. The staff was friendly and made the tiger feeding exciting....More
Hi everyone, Just wanted to post our intinerary and get some feedback as to whether we are craming in too much in one day, have time for other things or where we need to do some shuffling around. There are 5 of us, 2 adult, 3 children ages 6, 9 and 16: Friday: leave Anaheim (around 8-9 am), stop at Dana Point to do Whale Watching, stop in Carlsbad and do some shopping and arrive in San Diego to check into Humphrey's Half Moon Inn & Suites around 4-5 pm. Maybe after checking in, go...More

Our whale watching is at 10:00 - 12:00, then I thought we would be able to grab a bite for lunch in Carlsbad before we shop for a little bit before heading down to San Diego for our check in time of 4:00. Yeah, I guess our beach time is all dependant on the weather (crossing my fingers it doesn't rain). Thanks for the info about the bike rentals if it isn't a "beach" day. Either way we wanted to make it over to Coronado Island, it looks so beautiful! The last time my husband and I were...More
San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park (7 Replies)
We are going to be visiting San Diego in September and I am trying to decide if we should visit the Zoo and/or the Wild Animal Park. This will be my first time to SoCal. My husband and I are animal lovers. My concern is that we will be disappointed. We have been on safari in Africa and seen animals in the wild. We actaully got to pet a king cheetah. And by the time of this trip we will have also been to Australia to see the koala's. Is it still worth spending a day at the zoo or the park?...More

Well I'm sure any zoo or animal park will be a let down after those experiences. Only you can decided how much you love animals and if it's worth it.

Wild Animal Park in 1 Day? (3 Replies)
Advice on seeing the Wild Animal Park in one day. I know to get there early. After that? Also, any recommendations on the special extras they have for sale, i.e. the cheetah experience. We want to get the most out of the day. Just me and the teen son, so no petting zoos or things for little ones, please.

I think any of the special extras are worth while. The photo safaris are great experiences but of course pricey. I don't think you'll have a prob doing it in 1 day.
