As an animal lover and behaviorist, I went with a critical eye (only went to please my daughter). It was very expensive and in my opinion, just a glorified petting zoo. I am very skeptical of the ALERT program and I can't say that I fully understand how the program will actually be successful. I kept my mouth shut during the presentation as I didn't want to ruin the experience for my daughter or other paying customers.
The lions are trained to "sit and stay" for pictures and roboticly know when they must let the humans walk along side of them. I did not feel that the lions wanted to be doing this or even enjoyed the interaction. They were doing what they had been trained to do. A very artificial experience.
