This is so worth your time to see all the animals that are there. The only problem is you may need to buy more treats for feeding the animals! All the animals are friendly and they look forward to seeing you. Such a great experience.

We stopped by chance , 13 dollar entry is great value- that said charging people to feed your animals is a fantastic business model !!. The animals and the thought put into the layout is brilliant. We had a great time feeding the variety of...More

What a lucky kiddo to be assigned to report on the Ostrich and it sounds like he got all the information he needed from the professional herself, Mrs. Lucille Cogburn! How fun! Hope he got an A++ on that report =] Thank you so much...More

The Lorikeets are always a fan favorite which is why we place them towards the end, so your experience can be topped off perfectly with those little love birds! "A shining star in the desert" is by far one of the most lovely titles we...More

Since the monster truck was involved in an accident the ranch has suspended monster truck rides until further notice. Ranch is still open and lots of cool stuff to do there.
