Perfect to being your kids! Safari-like drive right by 50-100 bears (one crossed the road in front of us!) along with other fun animals. Then there’s a petting zoo area with baby dear, chickens, warthogs, and more and you just get to walk around with and pet them! And on top of that they have fun carnival rides ideal for ages 2-10 I’d say. You can even bottle feed a baby bear for $50 extra (we didn’t but wanted to!)
This place was a pleasant surprise. I thought it would be a typical tourist trap type of place but it was awesome! You pay 1 price to get in and that includes watching the adorable baby bears, riding the rides, visiting the petting zoo (they have deer!), AND driving through the bigger animal sections. We expected to be there 20 minutes and ended up enjoying about 3 hours.
