“we had a WILD time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

There were 19 of us and 12 of those were kids ranging in age 1 yr to 18yrs. We had a blast! i recommend going EARLY for two reasons, the animals are up eating and doing what animals do and the lines are very short. We knew we wanted to go on the safari ride and Mt. Everest which were on opposite ends of the park. As soon as we entered the park, we asked for help about deciding what were the 'must see's and do's', then we went to the fast pass station, picked our 3 rides and headed off. the safari line got long really quickly. The ride was informative and entertaining and then we went to Everest and it was a bumpy thriller, another long line. Then we enjoyed the rest of the park at our leisure. would go back and would recommend.

“Cool Safari”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

This was the first time I had ever been, I just went yesterday with some friends. We got there really early and was able to go on the Safari ride as soon as we got there. It was so amazing to see such beautiful animals out walking around like that and not in cages or anything. I love that they are so concerned with wildlife preservation. I hope they use most of the money it costs to get in this place toward it. Next we went to ride the river log ride, but it was broken down, so we went to the petting zoo and animal hospital area. By the time we got out, all the rides became really long, like an hour and a half wait, so I didn't get to go on the roller coaster, log ride or anything like that, we finished the day off at the Rainforest Cafe, almost $20 for just a hamburger and fries and just water to drink. I give it only 3 stars because after my experience, I think the place is quite overpriced and I didn't even get to experience the whole place because of it being overcrowded. The Safari ride was the best part.

“If you like the Zoo this is a park for you.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Don't get me wrong, I like the zoo, but I found this park to be a glorified zoo. The cast members were awesome as usual. The Dinosaur attraction, Safari and the Tucker house restaurant was my favorite parks of this park. We finished the park in about a half a day and if we didn't have dinner reservations at the Rainforest Cafe we would have left early and gone to another park. This park has a lot to offer with the different cultures in each area. It is worth experiencing but I think most people could do this park and use a hopper pass to go spend the afternoon at another park.
