“This place is a trap”

“This place is a trap”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

There are several factors that will ruin your weekend fun.
1-They just accept cash or checks, so if you don't pay attention in the website you may loose your trip if you are not prepared.
2-The infrastructure is very poor. Restrooms are nasty and there is no place for diaper changes.
3-Some animals are in bad shape, sick.
4-It is not very safe, since ostriches can try to bite food inside the car.
5-They have pony rides, but it is just one ride per kid, so try to explain this to your 3 year old who wants another ride and is crying in front of the pony. To make it worse, there is not even a waiting line.
Overall I was very frustrated and I do not recommend.

“Back to the Jungle!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

My family had a nice time and actually had my grand daughters birthday party there. Lots of different animals to see, and a tram ride to take you with feed in hand. Pony rides too. Picnic tables at the main area . Had a good time except for our hot Texas weather. All in all.... Go there!

“A Neat place that very close”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

I was suprized that you can see so many varieties of animals in one place. The tram was pretty cool and the petty zoo was great for the little kids.

“If you love animals, don't miss it”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

I love animals so you can get your fill here. We used to bring our kids here and now bring the grandchildren. This park has been here a long time. You get more up close than you can get at the zoo. Park such as this one need public support to stay open. I do my part. Why don't you?

“Slighty pricey, but very fun!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

I went here in summer of 2010 with my 3 year old and he loved seeing all the animals. When you first drive up there are animals just hanging out in the driveway and sometimes you have wait for them to move before you can drive to the parking area. The animals WILL stick their heads in your windows if you have them down and your buckets of food are in your laps. So interesting to see all of the different kinds of animals so up close.
