I loved my visit here. I learned a lot, had access to lots of animals and it was closer and cheaper than going to a zoo.

My family had a great time here. We rode on the wagon instead of driving our car through. That gave us the freedom to get hands on with the animals and get some info from the driver about them.

This is a fun, relatively inexpensive activity -- great for families or dates! Don't break the rules, though, folks. Rules are there for your safety!

This was so much fun! We made a reservation for the wagon ride. We didn't want to drive our car in because it was new and we were worried about the animals possibly scratching it. The open wagon was a blast! They give you a...More

Awesome. Went for my birthday and I enjoyed this way too much. Did the wagon ride and the guide was so knowledgeable and told us how to feed the different animals. Loved pouring food down their throats. Saw new born watusi calf who was only...More

We took the wagon ride to see the animals. Passengers are provided with a tub of animal food pellets. Apparently, this is how the animals are fed because they follow the wagon in droves. The variety of animals is outstand, from pigs to giraffes, brama...More

It's hard to entertain kids, 16, 13, 11 & 8, but this did the trick. There were a wide variety of animals- zebra, giraffe, water buffalo, bison, llama, emu, ostrich, goat, and others. All the kids & myself enjoyed feeding them and watching their antics-...More

You will be feeding animals out of your vehicle unless you take the wagon ride so be prepared for slime. The animals are happy and well-behaved. Park is clean.

Great getaway from the city. Very enjoyable and relaxing trip, close to Charlotte. Friendly and helpful staff. Driving thru with your car or in the wagon and feeding the animals can be a great experience especially for the young children.

We didn't take the wagon as it wasn't running so we drove our own car. We bought a bucket of food for each of us, but ran out of food long before the end. I'd buy extra food next time as I really like feeding the animals.

We bought 2 buckets for the 5 of us. we used smaller containers for the animals (sour cream, yogurt, tub butter size). That way if the animals knock it out of your hands (they do on purpose) you don't loose the whole bucket.

This time of year is take the wagon. Also, if you have a newer, nice vehicle, definitely take the wagon. But, hold on tight to the food buckets. Those critters will go for them. 😀
