Went with my family, and spent the whole afternoon there. Well worth the money and something the whole family can enjoy. You can even take a picnic.

Bought tickets to the Owl Experience for our birthdays and we had a great time. Nice BBQ, great to meet the birds and then the flying experience topped off the evening. Knowledgable and fun hosts. Highly recommended evening.
