I went one time a few years ago and will NEVER go back. It's a huge joke. I don't know how they are still open. I got tickled, because on my way to Gatlinburg in April, they had a sign in Knoxville advertising the place. I'd be pissed off if I drove down from Knoxville just for that!

yeah we went for a birthday party and my daughter got the pony rides added , they brought over a pony that stunk to high heavens looked like it hadn't been brushed in years.. when she complained about it , she was dimissed , saying that was the only one they had available , then we wnet to see the christman lights and they required a donation? when paid extra to see the reindeer, and there was only one way back in a pin and when i asked if my children could see it I was told we need not bother him right now, althought the lightsw were nice the whole place was nasty and the animals did not look well cared for , as in no baths or brushing

Crazy I went to the Christmas view 8 ago and they have a bunch of high school girls standing at the entrance with hands out demanding money. I don't remember which school they represented but the Zoo owners should make people aware that you have to "donate" to their favorite school to get past those girls. That was the last time I went. Definitely not worth it.

We went there for the Christmas lights a few years back and the guy collecting money said it was a donation. We took out $5, and he said it was at least $10 and he was the guy to give it to. Crazy! When we went through many lights were not working, and the path to drive on was awful and full of dirty holes and ruts. So not worth a $1!

they were at the 4th of july stavaganza at delliger park charging $1 for each time you go down they blow up slide, i have a 4 year old , do you know how much that cost, and then wanting 5 to go pet the animals and another 2 to feed them , they were all so dirty , and then at pioneer days 2 weeks ago giving pony rides for 5 and the ponies stunk to high heavens havent been brushed in a very long time, we own horses so i know when a horse has not been cared for, I even commented to them that the ponies need brushing and i was told DO YOU WANT TO RIDE OR NOT! I SAID NOT ! i just cant believe that someone has not reported them to the humane society and have them check out the care and living conditions of these animals ,,, i dont care how long they have been doing this , have you seen the actual park when you take the buggy ride its disgusting, all the junk everywhere

Scott the guy that owns it is a joke. He charges way to much for everything and them poor animals are not took care of at all. He works these young school kids like dogs and pays them nothing hardly, and he is just so disgusting. His own house is so nasty you can't stand to walk on the porch much less in the house. I would not take my kids anywhere near that place because it is definitely one of the nastiest places in Bartow!!!!

I can't believe they're still open for business. I'm not sure why anyone would use their services at all. They overcharge for everything and the animals are nasty. We quit going to see the Christmas lights because they keep going up on the price. it used to be just a "donation" but now it's at least $10 per car. I hope they go out of business. I hate to say that about a small business in this economy but they don't deserve to be open.

This place is a BIG joke and it is shameful it is allowed to remain open. They are getting lots of federal funding as an educational facility, they are supposed to be protecting animals and educating the public.
Their facilities are nasty and they do not care for those poor animals at all. We spoke with them once at the Rome fair (where they were charging to ride the animals). The man was so mean about the poor animals. He said they would sell the babies as soon as they could for the money, and when I said that was "sad", he said "It's all about making money".
