“Educational and Fun, Great For Kids!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

My kids and I finally got to come and check it out after hearing about it from friends. I was pleasantly surprised at how many animals they have and how big the place was. The place was clean and friendly. The staff are very nice and helpful. The safari ride was incredible, educational and fun. You can feed the animals food that you can buy at the snack area before loading on the bus. The safari tour was over 40 minutes with up close views of the animals which was great. Also there are lots of animals to see after the safari tour or if you don't want to do the safari there's plenty to see and do. There is a very nice reptile house and reptile show to see. There's a very clean and safe petting zoo area. We had lunch here too and the food was good. They cook the food after you order so it's fresh!!! There are a lot of options to choose from. It's pricey to eat here but it was worth it. They have icees too but it was too watery so I don't recommend those. You can also bring your own food and picnic too. The gift shop was nice also. The bathrooms were clean. We spent 4 hours visiting. It was well worth the drive up and the cost is reasonable. You can easily get discounted tickets also. This place would also we a great Girl Scout or Boy Scout trip to earn a badge. I would definitely come back again.

“Good Outdoor Family Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

If in the area, you HAVE to check out Lake Tobias, that is if you love animals, because they have a wonderful variety of them here! Be sure to take a bus ride, it is tons of fun if not raining lol or plan to take a rain coat or umbrella just in case... Perfect for adults and children alike and the baby goats are sure to steal your hearts! Please spend the whole day and do the place justice, be sure to pack a picnic!

“LOVE LOVE LOVE LAKE TOBIAS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We recently visited Lake Tobias for the first time and we were amazed at how wonderful the place is! It was neat and clean, the animals seemed very happy and healthy, the people were friendly, and the prices were affordable! We highly recommend this for any family looking for a great day trip! We have been to several zoos and wildlife parks and my kids told me this was one of the best! We cant wait to go back!
