I am a nature lover and visited the Olympic Game Farm for the first time since I took my mother there back in 1984. Back then it was a super clean park with exhibits with big cats and bears and other animals where people could walk and see them up close outside their vehicles. They had clean well kept cages and plenty of employees on the property and one guy had a bear show where the bear did some tricks for food. I remember in 1984 particularly this beautiful big spotted Jaguar with a proud cat like look on it's face. Of course, back then you still had the driving tour where you were expected to stay in your vehicle while feeding the animals bread purchased at the park. That was the same this time.
This time in August 2010 as I paid my admission and looked to the left and saw a bunch of cages that looked like they hadn't been cared for, tall grass and a general unkempt look. I thought to myself:" I came all the way up from Tacoma for this?"
However, I went ahead with the tour and the most disspointing part of the tour was the cages with the big cats. They looked like they hadn't been maintained in years, one cage had a sign COUGAR at the front and contained a bunch of chickens.
I know some reviews have dissed the animals care overall, I won't do that as I am not an expert in that area but do have my suspicions. Whoever is the authority to do inspections need to be aware it was nothing like the great place I remember in 1984.
