Idle-Hour Ranch reviews
We love going through corn mazes. Visiting my son in Ohio, I found this corn maze close to his home. Awesome corn maze!!!!! I must say tho, we did not finish it. Our adult children finished but... more »
This is a must visit! So many precious animals! We visit our local zoo often, but there is something so different with this experience. The “personalities” of these animals shine. Very FUN... more »
Very interesting place. We spent about 3 hours there with 6 and 1 year old. There are kangaroos, camels, otters, goats, sheep and a variety of other animals. The animals look healthy and well cared for. They have feed for purchase to feed animals with. Whole area is well shaded by interesting growth of trees with winding branches.
It's a nice Christian outreach program. They show Christ's love in their interactions with their guests and how they are taking care of His creation, all without being over the top or in your face. If you have questions about Christ or the the animals, they're happy to talk with you. This is an opportunity to see many different animals, much closer than you would in a zoo. You can feed many of the animals, and even pet some of them. They're still working on the otter show, but if are patient the otters come out eventually, after most people have left. We were patient and saw Sebastian come out, swim in the tank and jump out of the water to get the chicken leg and succeed in retrieving it. They have a sloth encounter and are working on a kangaroo encounter as well, but it is a little ways off. Definitely worth a visit.
