Nice ride in your car to see different animals and feed them; fun for the whole family. There is also small park and area for 'pic Nic".

From the moment we entered the park, the animals greeted us. Our children screamed with excitement the entire time. We had a great time feeding the animals. The donkeys were our favorite. We had an awesome time. We plan to visit again this summer.

It was a nice drive through the wilderness. Buy some food for animals as they come near your car and will block the way unless you give them some food. I won't say it was a must see location but if you have time you...More

We bought 3 cups of food to feed the animals. You need to drive slowly (speed limit 5 mph) because the animals stand in the road and come right up to your car hoping to get a snack! There were a lot of animals, but...More

Yes, the park is old. I took my boys there when they were kids, and they are in their forties. The last time I went, I took their children. We had just as much fun. The twisting road, the hills and the portholes are part...More

Not what we remembered, really has run down, roads were not maintained, lots of donkeys and goats should have asked for a refund.

I read some of the reviews and saw that some were worried about the animals welfare. We didn't see anything alarming at all. Although, I will say that I don't see the need for a rhino or lion to be there. Most people can see...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
About how long does it take to drive through? Typically, how long do visitors spend here? Is there a anywhere to eat lunch or have a picnic onsite? We are tentatively looking to stop by on our way from Dallas to Stillwater and I imagine it will be around lunch time.

It took about an hour to drive through and look around at the gift shop. They didn't seem to have a picnic area and there wasn't a place to get food in the park.

We got there at 9 when it opened so the animals would be active and hungry. And they were both!!!!!! Hold on tightly to your cups of kibble--the animals have learned they can grab the entire cup pretty easily.
Are you guys going to be open the 18th of March 2016 for spring break?
