My SO and I did a road trip from Houston to visit this park and we both loved it. I highly recommend paying for the private play and the exotic tour. I was debating on skipping the private play option and only doing the tour but it was definitely worth the money doing both options!

We live in Dallas and made a day trip to Oklahoma to visit the park. The staff was friendly but the park was not that great. We got the animal encounter tickets which are $35 and hoped to see exotic animals. Playing with the baby tiger was the highlight but other then that we were disappointed. They brought out a... More

we took the tour and it was very informative. we were able to interactive with some of the animals like wolves, the camel, baby tiger cubs,a snake, skunk, lizard. We also purchased the photo CD which was a good idea since you are not able to take your own photos. I don't think I would bring small children, but teens... More

I read some bad reviews and almost did not take my grand daughter to GW today,but I decided to make up my mind for myself. I am glad I did, what a great experience. The park is beautiful and the staff care so much about the animals. This is their life and it was touching. I don't know if the... More

Folks, we've gotta stop supporting this kind of place. I went expecting a fun day out but was so sad to see all kinds of wild animals looking in poor condition - dull coats, uninterested eyes, and forced to interact with people like they wouldn't in the wild. Then I read up on this place and found they'd been exposed... More

We went to this zoo today. It was amazing! Up close and personal with the animals. It was a great experience and there are so many animals I dont think we saw them all. The tour was great too! Learning about the tigers and lions and the history of the park was an unexpected thing. I have read good reviews... More

I've been here before and enjoyed the private tour. Last trip my wife and I were able to go through the whole place with a guide alone and enjoyed learning more about the animals. This trip there was 38 people in the tour, it cost me $100 for two people which was suppose to include a DVD which I paid... More

An organization doing a great job in rescuing wild animals and even allowing visitors to peek in on their work, which currently includes more than 200 "cats" (lions, tigers and so on). Our grandkids loved it. By the way, it's now called the "Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park."
