Great stop
Aug 2019 • Family
We stopped here with my young children as we were driving through New York to break up the trip. We were pleasantly surprised by this animal park, we went on the tractor ride and although it was not a very big Park they had a lot of animals there and they looked well taken care of. The best part of the park surprisingly was The Birdcage where they had a ton of parakeets that would land on you and you can feed them, my kids loved it.

A well-maintained animal park
Aug 2019
I recently visited Adirondack Animal Land for the second year in a row. My visit last year was with only 1 of my granddaughters. This time, I took all 3 of my granddaughters, ages 10, 8 and 7. To say that we had a good time would clearly be an understatement...we had a great time! As expected, the interactive "bird house" was a major hit...we began and ended our visit there. My granddaughters delighted in having many birds land on their hands, arms and heads...and so did I. I was wearing a backpack and one curious parakeet climbed down into the open pouch on the back...I made sure he had exited before we left! This is a fairly large park and I was pretty pleased with how nicely maintained and clean it was. Not only did I not see any animals in distress, I thought they all looked fairly content in their habitats. I think the owner and his staff take great pains to keep this park and its animals in good operating condition. The fact that we were there for nearly 4 hours is a positive comment in itself. I took my youngest granddaughter to a different park in the mid-Hudson region two years ago and, after witnessing the generally unkempt conditions there, we left after only about an hour. I heard a lot of squeals of delight while at Adirondack Animal Land...both from my granddaughters and from the many other kids who were there with parents and/or grandparents. It was a fun day and I'm guessing that we may very well be back again next year!

Tiny cages
Aug 2019 • Family
Most of the animals are in cages or paddocks too small for them with little to do. The black swans' water was filthy; a parrot was picking at its leg past the point of bleeding. It was extremely distressing to witness.
The animals are cute, of course, but their conditions are deplorable.
I could not stay.

Nice Surprise
Aug 2019
We were pleasantly surprised on our visit to Adirondack Animal land. This place is much bigger than expected. The beautiful wooded area filled with pine trees provides
a pretty environment to walk around. Even on a hot sunny day it is comfortable and shady. We did not see any signs of animal neglect and/ or unsanitary conditions. It is
very clean and spacious and a great place for the entire family to see and learn about
beautiful animals.

Surprisingly nice park for a little town
Aug 2019
We shared the park with SEVEN school buses and yet we were able to keep out of each other's way except when it came time to use the one snack bar. A nice variety of animals who are well trained to put their mouths next to the feeding shoot for anyone willing to pay the 25c to give them a little treat. I was surprised to see more exotic animals like giraffes and zebras at the park. A nice feature was the abundance of shade trees available for both animals and visitors on a hot summer day. I travelled with an adult in a wheelchair and there are some needed improvements in order to make the park ADA compliant for public facilities. The ramps to the exhibit areas were too steep with no railings to prevent falls. The one 'handicap' bathroom was not large enough to accommodate a wheelchair and had no bars. They could extend the pavement on some of the picnic areas so they would be more accessible to strollers and wheelchairs. The safari ride (extra $) had three steps to enter the wagon so we were not able to ride that. The train ride (also extra) was very short but the driver pulled alongside to the other side so we were able to watch visitors feed the alligators. The explanations were just the right length w/o being too complicated. TIP: use your smart phone to get the $2 coupon off admission.

A wonderful visit to the zoo!
Jul 2019 • Family
I had some concerns coming to this facility after reading some of the reviews. However, I can tell you that none of what they were saying is true! We had a fabulous birthday celebration with my grandson. The animals looked like they were well taken care of, well fed, and happy! The facility was extremely clean and the people working there were knowledgeable and friendly! The Safari was fabulous and informative. Also we enjoyed the train ride to feed the alligators and Emu. I even thought the snacks were reasonably price. I would highly recommend this zoo!

Don’t support this place
Jun 2018 • Family
Having been to most zoos in the immediate area (Syracuse, Binghamton, Animal Adventure park in Hapursville), there is a definite attempt to minimize the stress that animals in captivity feel. This is nothing more than a money making opportunity. The animals here are not happy. Animals in cages in zoos comes from a time and place where we did not know any better. Even then I remember visiting this place and was scared of the tiger - not because of the reasons of being a tiger but because his/her hostility was agitation at its surroundings in a cage. The animals are packed in. The petting zoo was not well organized.

Get with the times and make the adventure a learning one. Seeing animals in their habitat teaches kids about them, rather than putting them on display.
