This experience was very nice because we got to stroll down the roads to see the animals in the comfort of our own car. It was a very pleasant experience. I didn't like it that they had put out the zebras for the people to touch after they had mentioned that they bite. You can bring or buy some vegetables nearby Parc Safari. Once the animal area was over, you'd go into the area where there are shows, water parks and shops. There are many water parks, but the water wasn't the clearest. The shops had good quality merchandise.

Today's experience was one of our worst experiences ever. Our visit was on June 24, 2014. It was a rainy, on and off, day. We called the park before leaving whether they are open in this weather. We were told everything is open. So we went. To our surprise, a lot of animals were not out in the adventure trail. Most of the water attractions were closed. Excuse given was that there were not enough people there. Well we certainly paid full ticket but half of the stuff was closed. Note here that most of the water attractions that were closed were very dirty, with mold, algae and dirt all over the attractions. also not enough life guards were present either. The only water attraction open was the Dolphin Lagoon. This brings us to the main point of warning. My 2 1/2 year old son almost drowned in the Dolphin Lagoon along with my wife (and some other children there) probably who rescued him desperately since the life guard responsible for that part of the Lagoon was not present. She was happily chatting with other guards half way across the Lagoon area, who by the way were not paying any attention to the children in their respective areas. While all this was happening, the lifeguards still did not do anything, didn't even feel ashamed or asked if we were alright, instead the the lifeguard responsible for that part just disappeared from the scene. And the worst part was when we went to complain at the information desk at entrance, he told us "Ohh yes I heard about that". That's it and gave us paper to fill with our complaint. So if I had not went to complain, he would let it slide under the rug. Absolutely Terrible. Save your Money and go to Granby Zoo Instead. Its Way better managed and cleaner.

We took our two grandkids for the afternoon - kids enjoyed the animals, getting close and feeding them (not a huge variety of animals). You can bring carrots, lettuce etc. as the animals get bored with the 'animal food' for sale there. The entrance fee @ C$128. for two adults & two children is high as the car tour access closed at 3PM. Some of the aminals looked like they needed more care (ex: deer). Layout is a bit confusing with lack of signs to indicate sequence of walking tour for various attractions, so a lot of doubling back. Unfortunately, most signs, literature, and staff etc. deal only in French, which is surprising as they are so close to the US border to attract visitors.... assume a PQ mentality. Staff in the food services area handle food with bare hands etc., and there are flies everywhere! Overall lack of routine cleaning is apparent. Far inferior to many animal attractions in other parts of Canada and in the US. (Check out the Vancouver Aquarium!!).

Went there for a day trip with my husband, 3 yo, 13 yo and 2 older adults. Drive through safari was great. Dolphin lagoon was great for 3 yo my 13 yo was bored. Other water attractions advertised were closed and filthy. Menus were just in French which made it hard for me to order. Cooks were handling food without gloves which grossed me out. Park overall was nice.

Parc safari is entertaining enough but it is extremely expensive. There is a lot to see but it does cost 80$ for 2 adults. The park is well maintained and everything is extremely accessible and informative. I will continue to visit once a year but no more than once! I can't afford it'
