Since opening day In 1972 families have been making memories on our world famous self guided Drive Tour.
While driving through 84 acres of terrain, visitors get an up close face to face experience with a variety of wildlife from the comfort of their vehicles. Most of our friendly animals will approach the car windows to say hello and grab a slice of bread or two. The hoofed animals that will be approaching your vehicle are Llama, Tibetan Yak, Elk, American Bison, Spotted Fallow Deer, Sika Deer, European Fallow Deer, Zebra & domestic horses.
In addition to the free ranging animals, our famous waving bears may perform behind their fence line for a snack. Be sure to stay seated in the car, give a wave to our bears, throw them a slice of bread as they just may wave back! View our “in need” predators from their enclosures before heading to our elk and bison fields. While enjoying the interaction from the elk and bison, keep in mind they can get aggressive, so we do ask for visitors to keep their vehicles moving at all times in those two areas to prevent damage to your vehicle or cars that may be behind you.
The driving tour takes about 1 hour or so and the admission prices are ALL DAY PASSES. Drive around as many times as you like, take as many photos as you like, and enjoy your time here!
Feeding WHOLE WHEAT bread from the vehicle is permitted, but watch your fingers with our Zebra and Horses, they may bite.
