What fun we all had (ages 2 to 75) on a horse-drawn wagon ride through a preserve for a wide variety of wild animals. Yaks, llamas, zebras, water buffalo, ostriches and giraffes to mention just a few. The kids loved feeding them. We followed up...More

My wife and I love animals, so we thought this would be a great place to go while we were in the Mooresville, NC area. When we entered, we asked about the wagon to ride on through the ranch, but they said it was not...More

We loved this place. Like any animal park there is always a possibility that your car could get damaged but the animals were really cute. You have to keep car windows closed if you dont have food and even if you do the animals will...More

Yes, I think that is ok. The speed is slow and the wagon is really high. You do not need to feed the animals if you do not want to. We went in our car, but did see many toddlers on the wagon.
