Bunch of captive animals in corrals. Good for local kids who would otherwise not get to see these creatures. Not a thrill for anyone who has ever been to a good zoo. The religious texts are somewhat distracting.

After Labor Day bottle feelings are at 12 and 4.
What time is feeding? I'm considering on bringing the grandkids there while we're staying at Roaring River over the weekend.

Yes, regular tickets can be purchased the day of travel. If you want to do the personal tour need to contact the park at least a couple of days in advance
