The Wild Animal Park, Chittenango Reviews
Awesome place to visit for animal lovers of all ages. They have an impressive collection of large cats as well as other animals that you typically won't get to see up close. It was really fun being able to feed and pet the giraffes as well as all the animals in there petting area. My daughter love the alpacas and the little camels. Definitely would come back again.
Rating 4 instead of 5 just because it is all a little costly for a family of 6. We had a blast feeding the animals and even petting some of them. Keep in mind the entrance price does not include feeding the animals. The best part of The Wild is being able to feed the goats, camels, giraffes, cows, sheep... It was also neat to learn about the bears, see large cats playing and the kids also had fun on the bounce houses. If you know your kids are going to be doing the bounce houses it is cheaper to just buy the bounce combo unless you have a kid under 2. The bird closure was closed, but I saved myself 20 bucks for bird feed sticks. Food and drinks are in the back and only cash. It was fun for all.
What a wonderful place for families to visit animals! The price for admission is reasonable and comparable with similar places. The staff is friendly and welcoming. It is so clean and beautiful. The animals are well-fed, are playful, and seem to enjoy visitors. Our family has never been so close to some of these animals before. The giraffes are amazing! It costs $2.00 for 5 carrot pieces. The giraffes love the carrots and gobble them up quickly. You can buy a cup of grains for $5.00 to feed the goats and cows by hand. You can use the same grain to feed the zebra. You place the grain on a ramp and it slides down to the zebra. The camels also love to be fed by hand. Feeding the 80+ parakeets is expensive, but worth the experience. It costs 2.00 per feeding stick. You cannot enter the enclosure without a feeding stick. So, for our family of 5 it was a bit pricey! The birds fly all over though and even land on your head! They have 14 alligators that you can see be fed by a worker! That was fun! The bounce houses are extra, but we avoided the fee by saying they were only for birthday parties. We wanted to save money for feeding the animals. Overall, what an excellent trip....highly recommended to all!
The Wild is an excellent (and well-priced) zoo. There are many animals, plenty of space, and it's kept quite clean. The bounce houses provide a nice way to burn off energy for the kids, and a nice way for parents to take a quick break, and the snack shack is conveniently located nearby that. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. It's awesome being able to get so close and directly feeding giraffes, camels, llamas, goats etc. It truly is a wonderful experience for the family, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
We love this zoo. We now go here instead of Rosamond Gifford zoo, even though it's twice as long of a drive. There are always great close up views of all the animals. The animals are also usually much more active here and fun to watch for hours. There are a lot of opportunities to see the animals being fed or talked about. Seeing the tigers being fed at the fence and standing up on their hind legs is an eye opening experience - you get a real sense for the surprising size of these animals. You can also interact with many of the animals, feeding goats and llamas, feeding carrots to (and petting!) giraffes from a raised platform, and even holding a baby kangaroo. You can also go into their bird house and about 10 or 15 little parakeets will land on you all at once and eat off of feeding sticks you hold - it sounds crazy, and it is, but in a much more fun way than you'd expect. I saw a dozen people go through and no one ended up with any poo on them ...impressive. I also like that you can have great conversations with the zoo staff and learn unexpected things about the animals even if you already an animal person. The zoo is also usually not crowded, at least not on the 4 occassions we were there. We also had the opportunity to meet the owner once while we were there, who took the time to chat and ask us if we were enjoying ourselves. He and the staff seem like really great, down to earth people. I'd highly recommend a visit.
