I'm not sure where to start when reviewing this place. I will say that my first concern (out of many) was the way the animals were treated and the lack of safety on the (VERY outdated) rides. I saw a sheep get his head stuck...More

First it was $20 per person and though I doubt I'd come back, it was an interesting experience. There were plenty of carnival-like rides like the tilt-a-whirl, carousel, rotating planes, helicopters, and tanks, and Ferris wheel. The little buildings and statues that are scattered throughout...More

Yes, they have quite a few picnic tables and I believe you are able to bring a cooler in. We brought food, not in a cooler, and didn't have an issue.
