Wow! Wow! Wow! We visited during the off season, when it was cold & snowy. The animals we're out & there were very few cars so we were able to stop and linger for a while. We happened to be there during bear feeding time; it was so much fun watching them & the wolves go after the food. The last part of the excursion was interactive & a walk through exhibit. We loved it!!!
What an amazing place. Was here a summer ago with my family and we stopped in not really knowing what we were getting into. Would pay twice as much for this experience. You get to drive past local animals. Bears, Wolves, Elk, it was so cool. And then they also have a zoo that you can walk through. We saw baby bears and they were the cutest thing I have ever seen, they were very playful. Would definitely stop in again if we were in the area.
I’m kinda of a negative Nancy when it comes to keeping wild animals in captivity and usually come away from most places feeling worse than better. But, this place was well-kept, the animals appear to be taken care of exceptionally well and it was very interesting to seem all the different species. The staff was very courteous and really cared about their jobs. We would recommend it for all ages!
WOW! That was very cool. The animals out back were awesome, the "zoo" up front was cool, too. That was very well done. It was SO COOL being so close to the bears, and if you can go early, you can see the bears (and other animals) getting fed for the day. Very nice facility, and those animals are being well taken care of.
better than a zoo because you can be face to face with some of the animals. only reason it doesn't get a 5 star is because it was short(although you can stop as long as you want) and not enough animals. i loved it and the kids all loved it too. would definitely go again if i come back here to Rapid City. this is a must visit attraction!!!
