I like it very much. A great place to stop when taking a long car trip. We especially enjoyed watching the staff interact with the animals.

I don't enjoy watching animals in cages and so I wasn't too thrilled about visiting this place but they do have an admirable collection of snakes (venomous and non venomous) from around the world . An assortment of animals and birds and a petting zoo...More

The Zoo was so much more that the Snakes. I don't care for snakes. The other animals are so much better. There were lots of newborn goats. So cute. They had lions, camels, prairie dogs, peacocks, foxes, chickens, river otters, hyenas and much much more.

Our kids enjoyed this. A big room with caged snakes and reptiles, then you go outside and see the caged animals, and then end in the petting zoo. It was much bigger than it looks. Very reasonably priced.

Yes! all pet-able animals are running wild in the park and it seems they are just waiting for the train to ride through so they can get fed by the guests arriving.
