The park is relatively small. The tour in the cave was quick. The train ride to feed animals was fun. Overall it is a decent park with very little to do but the feeding animals part is really fun for kids and adults.

Get the combination ticket, it's the best value. Don't forget to pick up some food for the deer and emus. It's a fun time all around, taking about 2 hours.

4 adults killing time and it was decent. We did the combo package, so saw the cave and everything else they had to offer. A little pricey for a family for what it is, but we had fun.
