I have an old Jeep Cherokee sport 4x4 that I drove through which was perfect for the drive. I really enjoyed feeding the animals and taking selfies with the zebras. If you drive as opposed to taking the wagon, you can go as many times...More

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
