You get two options here - either drive your own vehicle through the animals, or for a slightly higher price, ride the horse-drawn wagon. We opted to drive our vehicle and it was a bit nerve-wracking. The animals surround your car, trying to get inside the windows, thinking you have food, whether you do or not. Some of the cattle...

I really enjoyed this. Me and my boyfriend saw a-lot of different animals, even some i have never seen before, and they all free roam, they can follow your car and everything.. And you can feed them. From cute little baby pigs to HUGE yaks and cows and ostriges.. Great experience!!!!

My kids ages 7 & 11 had a blast feeding all the friendly animals during our drive through ranch experience. Loved seeing, petting and feeding the wildlife. Well worth the visit to hear their laughter and see the nonstop smiles on their faces.

What a fun time for kids from 8 to 80. My father is 92 and he had a blast. Take the hay ride through the park/zoo to have the most fun. The animals come right up to you and open their mouths so you can drop the food in! And I'm not talking about small animals either.

This was not what we expected! We were pleasantly surprised ! The animals that you encounter are exotic enough and when we went at springtime there were a lot of babies. This is a lot of fun, try it you will not be disappointed.

We have family over from the UK and thought this would be a great outing for today - it started off exactly what we expected - lots of excitement!! I must say, I was somewhat disappointed with today's ride around the park. The Rhino wasn't out to see - the cows weren't in their normal place. Several things were just... More

We got there to late for the bus safari so we drove through. I am a photographer and we have a sun roof so I stood up and shot through it! Everyone else saw me and started doing the same....some out of their windows! Everyone had a blast! My daughter and her friend....16 year olds... loved feeding the animals especially... More

This was probably our 10th or so trip to Lazy 5 over the past 6 or 7 years. It is about 45 min from us and is the perfect day outing. We started taking the kids when they were about 4 to 6 yrs old and they are still enjoying it at 12 yrs old. We prefer to do the... More

This is a drive through safari type adventure with your windows down. Buy some buckets of food at the beginning and feed the animals as you go. Be careful, though! They will snatch the bucket if it is close to the window and help themselves. Just hold out handfuls of food for them. Sooooooooooooooo.... there are pigs, deer, buffalo, alpacas,... More
