Took my grandson, his Mom and my Mom to this petting zoo. At $10 adult entry fee, this is a bit over priced. There is a hands on feeding area for the Guinea Pigs, but only petting over a fence for the rabbits, pigs and alpacas. The small train ride, and the horse ride are an extra cost.

I rated this 3 only because of the price. This is a small petting zoo in the San Juan Capistrano's Los Rios Historic District. Fun for kids. There is a small collection of animals, a hay maze, pony rides and snacks for sale to feed to the animals. The price per adult is $10. I think that is too much... More

I went to Zoomars on Sunday; I did not realize how busy it would be at 3:15 in the afternoon and how small of a venue it is. It's pumpkin time there, and thank goodness for the Groupon. It's expensive for the limited amount of things to do and see. My 4 year loved it, my 7 month baby slept... More

What a great time! We used the Groupon so it was an especially good value. The Grandchildren enjoyed petting and feeding the animals, riding the train, the maze, decorating pumpkins and especially mining for gems. We had so many photo opportunities.

This place USED to be amazing!!! However, the new owner has taken away 70 percent of the animals and the ones that are left are so far off in a distence its like being in a zoo. The main picture of the zdonk that you see. Well he's no longer there either. Instead this new owner has put party rental... More

First brought my grandson here when he was 3 and after 3 years he still remembers his time here and now he is 6. So very memorable for him and isn't that what it's about? Great staff and very clean place. So go build a memory with your child or grandchild.

After reading some of the reviews, we were no sure how our grand children 4 and 6 would enjoy his attraction. The kids had a great time and did not want to leave. They goats, lamas, cow(?), rode horses, played in the corn. Parking is ample in the park next door and on site. The animals appear well kept and... More

We brought our 21 month old grandson here for his first exposure to farm animals. He was a little reserved at first, but all of the animals were gentle and the staff was great. He loved feeding the animals and petting them. He even had a pony ride and a train ride. There were a lot of people here, but... More
