Not sure how to plan your visit?

Welcome to the Wildlife Festival!

Plan for at least 2 hours to fully experience the Wildlife Festival.

Upon arrival, be sure to have your tickets or payment ready to smoothly process getting in the doors. If you have pre-purchased an experience you can pick up your tickets as you enter the show.

There are 2 stage shows rotating every 60 minutes with animals available for petting and encounters in between.

Meet and pet our wallabies, porcupines, pig, ferrets, and tortoises at any time at their pens. Purchased an experience? You can do them at any time with these animals!

Meet and pet a giant boa and lizard or do your photo experience throughout the day.

Did somebody say sloths? Sloths will appear on stage during each mammal show and may be visible in the exhibit. At times they may be behind a curtain to give them a break from the public.

The exhibits feature interesting facts about different animals that you can learn about. Take your time to learn more about Dragons, the Jungle, and Diversity of Living Things!

Before you head off from your animal adventure, stop at the merchandise table and take home the best kind of pet – one you don’t have to walk or feed!
