The entrance fee for our family was more than any other attraction that week. The older gentlemen and woman were nice, but the guy in his 40s followed my kids around and kept offering pony rides and train rides and such, which cost extra and...More

We've brought our two year old grandson here the last three days, and he's had a blast. There is lots to see and do if you like farm animals; petting them, and feeding them, holding little chicks, and more. The snack bar is well stocked...More

We recently traveled back to Rapid City to visit family and took our two year old here. She absolutely LOVED every minute of it. It is a great hands-on experience for kids to get up close and personal with so many animals. My only complaint...More

It's expensive, $11 for my 2 year old and more than that for accompanying adults, even if you're only a supervisor for the kids using the facility. Feel like there should be some leeway on that, at least maybe for disabled vets and elderly family...More

I didn't think this was worth the price. The two younger ones loved it. They had fun feeding the goats. But if we ever come back won't come here again.

It is a good spot but I was a little disappointed with the amount you pay for admission. Your admission is good for 3 days which is nice. This was a quick stop for us. Our 11 month old enjoyed it. Some of the animals...More

Went with the kids ages 4, 8 and 1. It was awesome that you could get so up close with the animals and pet them!! You can even bottle feed a calf. Well worth the money spent! The staff is sooo friendly too! Great place!...More
