Daily Guided Tours

Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, we are not currently offering our Guided Tours. Just because the tours have stopped, doesn’t mean the fun has to.We’re taking it back old school, for the first time since 1995, and letting our visitors drive their own vehicle through the park!


Adults are $16.95/ea

Children (2-12) are $13.95/ea

Seniors (60+) are $15.95/ea

*These prices include both the petting zoo and guided tour. If you are only wanting to visit the petting zoo area, it is $8 per person.*

Small Buckets of Feed are $6.00

Big Buckets of Feed are $10.00

Private Tours:

We offer a one-on-one experience with this tour upgrade! Reserve the whole trailer for you and yours only!

Regular Tour Price (Per Person) + $150 Flat Fee

Our Private Tours must be booked by phone reservation only and require a $50 deposit upon booking.

These private trips are limited – So, we recommend calling us a few days in advance to ensure a Private Tour and start making plans!

Due to increased traffic on holidays, we typically do not book private tours during spring break, Thanksgiving week, Christmas break or New Years. But please come see us for a regular tour!

Hours of Operation:

  • The first tour can leave any time after 9AM.
  • The last tour leaves no later than 5PM – don’t be late! It is best to arrive 30 minutes early so you can enjoy the petting zoo before we take off!
  • Tours last approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Plan to spend at least 30 minutes in the petting zoo before and/or after the ride!

Our tours are not on a fixed schedule, so don’t worry about reservations! We never sell out and you are guaranteed to hop on the ride if you arrive before 5PM!

The longest wait you’d ever have would be about 30 minutes – however our petting zoo animals make the time go fast!

Have a Large Group?

No problem! Our trams can hold up to 40-45 people people! We do appreciate a heads up if you plan on bringing more than 20 people so that we ensure there will be enough guides here. Just give us a call!

We offer discounted rates for school and church groups! As well as summer camps and others (give us a call to make sure you are eligible) – these rates start when you bring 20 students or more. Check out our Field Trip Page for information and then give us a call at (830)868-4357 to reserve!

Yes, we have a gift shop!

Our newly renovated gift shop includes a rotating plethora of souvenirs and gifts! These items are typically never more than $20 because we want you and yours to bring home something to remember us by.

In the gift shop you will also find chips, fruit snacks, Coca-Cola products and Haagen-Dazs/Nestle Ice Cream treats! We also sell bags and cups of ice!

Our General Store is also up and running! Here you’ll find napkins, paper plates, utensils, charcoal, lighters, medicines and more.
