What exactly is a drive-through?

You take the same tour route as our typical guided tour! You can interact with over 500 animals, 50 different species all from your vehicle. They come right up to your car for snacks and lovin’!

When are we open?

We are open every single day of the year with the exception of Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day. Our hours stay relatively the same, letting cars in from 9am to 5pm.

Do you need to buy tickets in advance?

During the weekdays, no – you can just drop in. On weekends and holidays, however, we recommend you to buy tickets online before your arrival. If we are extremely busy, our prepaid buyers will get priority and drop-ins can expect longer wait times.

How long does it take?

If you visit us on the weekend, plan to spend a few hours here as we tend to get a bit busier. When there are a lot of cars in our park, obviously things will move slower! During the weekdays, we’ve started to slow down a bit so you are looking more at an hour to an hour-and-a-half drive. But, we make no promises as far as time frames go.

What if it rains?

We are open rain or shine! The animals are still very active if it is a bit drizzly! The only time they get a bit lazy is if it is extremely hot outside… So use your best judgement!

What does it cost?

Do you really need to buy feed?

Our animals are free-fed all day, every day. The feed that you purchase is only a snack for your enjoyment. But through our experience, buying feed definitely enhances your experience because the animals will spend more time with the guest willing to give them more snacks!

Are we dog-friendly?

Oh yeah! Bring along your pup for a drive-through tour amongst the critters. We do ask that they keep barking to a minimum and they must be on a leash at all times! We also allow pets in our cabins!
