We have not been to The Wilds in 20 years. Back when they only had a few animals and no zip lines. We had time for a bite to eat before our zip line adventure. The food was good and the coffee was hot and strong. Check in for the zip line and safari bus tour was quick and easy.... More

We love The Wilds. The open air bus is a bumpy but fun way to visit the animals. You never know which animals will be up close. This time it was the rhinos! Our next trip will be to zipline.

What a great time we had! Our tour guide was friendly, upbeat & very knowledgeable about the preserve. Seeing (most) of the animals up-close-and-personal was very exciting! Highly recommended!

My children and I did the 2 1/2 hour zipline tour. There are 10 ziplines of varying speed and height. You travel over land, water and animals! Our guides, April and Amelia, were very encouraging and never made me feel like the team dunce. I was not delivering on the landings very well and Amelia had to save me a... More

Took teen grandson and enjoyed by all. Excellent guide Don; good animal views; even a wheelchair free for use at the carnivores exhibit. HOWEVER, beware...we purchased on-line tickets to insure the time and type of tour since we were coming from out-of-state only to get there to find a sign affixed to the ticket window "two for the price of...

My wife and I visited for the first time, last week. We did it as a day trip from our home in Hudson, about a 2 hour drive away (which worked out quite well). If you are interested in wild animals, if you like going to zoos, this is certainly the place for you. We did the 2+ hour open... More

My wife and I took the Sunset Safari after a couple of years of debate. We should have gone earlier. Thoroughly enjoyed the safari across the animal habitats. The driver was very knowledgeable about the park and animals. This tour goes in the evening so you get excellent sunset lighting and the animals are more active as it is cooler.... More

As a teacher, I appreciate all of the effort that was put into making The Wilds such an interactive and fun educational experience for kids of all ages. It is chock full of interactive activities that are visual, auditory, tactile, and also involve the senses of sight, hearing, touch, and even smelling! It would take a full two days to... More

My wife and I took our granddaughters to the wild and had a great time. We took the open air safari, the only way to go. Had a great driver/tour guide, Rosie. She was fantastic and very informative and knowledgeable. Lots of fun, enjoyed seeing all the animals.
