  • We took our almost 4 year old girl and she loved it. The park helpers were great and there were plenty of chances to see, feed, and touch the animals. Very well done. We also had lunch before heading ...  more »

  • I went 3 weeks ago and the food and the service was great, actually amazing!! I went again last night and my server was not terrific, seemed slow, confused by our orders, we were staying for the band thank goodness otherwise it would have taken 3 hours by the time we paid for our meals and got our cards back. We actually thought they forgot our checks because we had finished eating 45 minutes before getting our check. I ordered a simple fish fry. It took us close to an hour to get our meal. The only thing eatable on the plate was the fish as it has set under a heat lamp for quite sometime. Fries were warm, but very soggy, coleslaw and macaroni salad which were to be served cold came out warm as if they had been cooked in an oven all the way through to the plate. I did have a good experience 3 weeks ago and because of that I may give them one more try. But, when you work hard and earn a night out you like to get your monies worth. That definitely did not happen last night. The band was great.
  • Stopped while camping in the area. We thought it was a great place for our daughter to see some exotic animals up close. She had a blast feeding some of the animals right from her hand. Hidden Valley also has a restaurant and small petting zoo in addition to the safari tour. Would definitely go back again.
