So much fun. I think this is better then the zoo. The animals come right up to the car. Make sure you get a bag of food. They sell it before you go in. We spent three hours there. We will definitely be back.

Hi! My husband and daughter and I were there yesterday (Sunday 11/11/18) and went on the afternoon Behind-the-Scenes tour. All the giraffes except the big male, Mosey, were in their enclosure which is heated. But Mosey was more than willing to come take our food pellets! The baby rhinos and their moms were also in their enclosures because of the cold. The other animals were all out, and very willing to come to the cars and tour vans travelling through.
