"Unique animals"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

There is an interesting mix of animals on display. Some were unique and unfamiliar to me which was a positive. I had a Groupon and if you can get tickets at a discount then I would recommend doing that. I am not sure I would pay full price to visit. The negatives were no place to clean off or sanitize your hands after petting/feeding the animals outside. Also the bathrooms were a bit dirty and there were spiders all up and down the walls near the toilet. If it were a rainy day, it would be a worthwhile indoor activity.

"Never again!!!"

I have been to multiple zoo's and animal exhibits around the country, and I have never seen animals that looked so depressed in enclosures. The goats and sheep behaved like they have to scavenge for the food that guests give them. There is absolutely no hand sanitizer to use after feeding the animals. There were cockroaches running around the entire facility including the bathrooms, my wife wouldn't even go into the bathroom to just wash her hands. Some of the animals look sick and very depressed. Workers were in the prairie dog enclosure dusting the windows and sides without any mask or breathing apparatus of any kind.

"Cute"

This was a cute petting zoo. It has a medium to large size indoor area with many animals and reptiles. The outside area is the petting zoo. It's a small walking area with animals on both sides. Teenagers thought it was cute young ones really enjoyed. It was great family time.
