About 2-4 times a year I stop at the Ranch to see the animals. These people truly love their jobs and the ranch. They have made each time I've come, a wonderful experience for me and my son. I enjoy bring my young son down to feed the animals, ride in the monster truck and see the ranch. He loves... More

Truly enjoyable surprise place about 40 minutes from Tucson and an hour from Phoenix. Feed various animals their preferred type of food - $13 for all of them, and then refills of the hoofed and ostriches are $2 each or 3 for $5. In an hour we fed all of the animals and really enjoyed ourselves. Animals look very well... More

We were driving from Scottsdale to Tucson and randomly decided to stop to see what this was about. SO MUCH FUN! You need to do this. Personally, the ostriches weren't the highlight for me, in fact they kinda scare me. All the other animals were fantastic fun! They had deer, goats, sheep, stingrays, lorikeets, bunnies, ducks, and a few others.... More

Fun for kids, and even adults. Feeding the animals is a riot. They've added a sting ray (minus their barbs) as an animal to feed as well. Great place.

I visit this ranch periodically and I was pleasantly surprised with their new building housing a gift shop, a fun shooting gallery, and a Stingray Touch pool! The petting and feeding exhibits are so much fun and well worth the price. You can choose different packages depending on how much you want to do. They have monster truck rides on... More

We love all the animals, but especially the sweet-tempered donkeys. If you stand there for a moment without feeding them, some of them will gently nudge you with their heads. The ducks are a little too frantic and the lorikeets freak me out (those little talons as they sit on your arm!) but I could feed the donkeys all day.... More

Probably the most fun and interesting roadside attraction. The staff is outstanding and the exhibits are completely interactive. Your family will remember this stop forever, from little kids to senior citizens, the crowd was full of laughter and true enjoyment. I would definitely recommend this as a must see. They added many new exhibits on Nov 22, 2016, so time... More
