We purchase tickets on Groupon for a group of 3 adults and 2 toddlers. We had a great time. It's not overwhelming for little ones and you don't have to walk 100 miles like a big zoo. You aren't going to be blown away, but you will appreciate the mom-and-pop feel to this facility, not overly commercialized. I would have... More

This is a great place, just north of Dallas, to spend an afternoon with the family. Check for ticket packages on Groupon. You can feed camels, goats, donkeys, horses and other animals. They take credit cards for all activities.

A good place to take the toddlers. Petting zoo was a highlight for our two yr old. The "shows" are more educational talks but they are not very long, as good for toddlers. Can make a good pit stop before exploring Ray Roberts State Park.

we took our 14 month old grandson and he had a blast. Really had a good time. We had a picture made with a lemur and the photographer was wonderful. It was a great picture!

A small but well run and maintained wildlife ranch northwest of Dallas. Lemurs, a couple of tree sloths, black bears, camels, goats, ponies, horses, zebras, and more. You can feed most of the animals there, pet them, interact with them. It is fun and their shows are educational. Time to time they bring out an animal or two and allow... More

This is definitely a mom & pop type of attraction. It's about an hour north of Dallas. My girlfriend found a Groupon for this place which is how we heard about it. The Groupon seemed to be a great deal, but they didn't tell you about the mandatory $5 you have to pay for parking at the front gate. Gotta... More

Took my 2 year old and she seemed to enjoy it. Wasn't much for adults to do and not many places to cool off either. Would visit during cooler weather

Just wish they would do a little clean-up and teach the driver of the tram to speak up and clearly. No one could hear nor understand what he was saying. It was like an episode of Saturday Night Live mumbler!

We discovered Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch many years ago. Since then we've gone at least once a year. It's a favorite. It's small enough that it's super easy to keep track of little kids, but there's enough there that a group of adults can have a great time. If you love animals and/or pizza then you need to invest in an... More

What a gem in Pilot Point!! They seem to be having some $ issues since the rain has lowered attendance.... All the more reason you should go and support them! They have 2 bears in a large enclosure, lots and lots of camels and Clydesdales. Zebras, kangaroos, lemurs, a petting zoo and you can feed most of them! They have... More
