Hidden Valley Animal Adventure Celebrates its 9th season!!

This is one of our favorite places to visit! It’s a great up-close-and-personal look at the beautiful, albeit stinky animals! 🙂

Visitors Get an Up Close and Personal Interactive Experience with Exotic Animals; Home to Over 300 Animals and 40 Different Species; 2018 Event Schedule Announced; 60,000 Visitors Expected this Season.

May 4, 2018 is opening day of park season when Wild Game Safari Tours resume at Hidden Valley Animal Adventure. The park is home to over 400 animals
representing 40 different exotic species to include camels, zebra, water buffalo, bison, elk, emu and many more.

If you’ve never been there – here’s the deal!

Guests take a 55-minute guided tour through the park where they get up close and personal with many of the animals, feeding them right from the trolley. The park also hosts a Small Animal Adventure where guests can see and feed the smaller, more docile animals.


My family LOVED the safari ride!


WHEN: On the opening weekend, the park is open Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  & Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Safari Tours run May 4 – October 28, 2018.

COST:  The cost of the safari tour is $19.50 for adults, $15.50 for children ages 3-10 (ages 2 and under ride free), and $18.00 for military andseniors (65+). The price includes the 55-minute tour, a cup of grain and admission to the Small Animal Adventure.
