Where are we going today?

Wagon Trails Animal Park is a unique animal adventure, and you don't have to head all the way over to safari in Africa to enjoy it!

This Ohio family owned and operated animal park is not like your traditional zoo. Nope! In fact, it's more like you are traveling across those plains of the Savannah, with wild animals roaming around you, AND coming right up to you!

At Wagon Trails Animal Park, the animals aren't in enclosures. Here, they have acres of land to just roam as they please. How amazing is that - not only for the animals but for YOU!

When you arrive, you just leave your car in the parking lot, and head on over to their special safari bus. Then, your very knowledgeable safari guide will narrate as you make your way through 60 acres of ponds and wood, where you can then see and FEED over 350 animals!

Some of the animals they have at Wagon Trails Animal Park are zebra, camel, water buffalo, bison, and even ostrich!

You don't have to travel the world, because this animal park have brought the world to you! The animals come from 6 continents, so it really is a great way for kids to learn about not only animals of the USA, but of places they may have only so far dreamed out. An incredible learning experience for kids.

Don't forget, if you are celebrating a birthday, Wagon Trails Animal Park offer great birthday fun too! You can spend the day with your people friends, and new animals friends.

Have some animal encounters you will never forget at this Ohio animal park - and don't forget your camera!

Doing our bit

They really look after the animals, especially since they don't have them in regular enclosures. They can roam free, much like they would do in the wild.

Need a little extra help?

Speak to staff about any assistance you might need. The wagon takes you around, so walking isn't necessary to see the animals and have the same great experience.

    My four-year old niece and I went and we both enjoyed it thoroughly! The animals are well-cared for by the owners and the staff is friendly. Not scary, animals who come up to the safari truck can be fed either by pouring food into their mouths, holding a bucket for them, or putting food on the floor of the wagon so they can lap it up. My little niece did the latter. The petting zoo is nice, too, with a few different ways of feeding the animals. We especially liked a group of juvenile pot-belly piglets that really relished the petting. Also...Read More

    What a great day for the young grandkids! The varied animals are close enough to touch, feel and smell. It is a unique experience for most kids under 8. Any parent or grandparent who loves giving them a memory will enjoy this. It was as good as Disney for a few hours but just a quick day near Youngstown, Ohio. Seemed a few bucks pricey at first, but these animals need care, feeding and a whole lot more. It was worth it.

    Criticism - I did get many photos of the animals. Seems there must be a way to get a good family / kids photo with the...Read More

    Took my grandson August 24, 2014 and August 15, 2013. In the one year it seems have gone downhill. The camel would not get up, and I noticed some of the animals I seen last year were not there this year.

    A quick family activity, easy to find. It is amazing how many animals they have, all roaming free together...no cages. You can pet and feed them all. The place is kept so clean, is sooo beautiful. You forget you are in Vienna, Ohio!

    It's a great place took my nieces they loved it. It's a really upkept place you can tell all the animals are taken care of properly. The only thing is the gift shop is pretty expensive.

My little niece did the latter. The petting zoo is nice, too, with a few different ways of feeding the animals. We especially liked a group of juvenile pot-belly piglets that really relished the petting. Also birds, peacocks, etc. You get one large bucket of food for the ride, then if you want more, it's $2 a bucket. Food for petting zoo is available for 25 cents an ice-cream cone full of food. Also a few vending machines that take a quarter in the petting zoo. My niece stayed and stayed playing with a an apparatus that delivers bowls of food to goats on on a protected roof. We were there for two hours. Picnic area and gift shop full of kid stuff.

Criticism - I did get many photos of the animals. Seems there must be a way to get a good family / kids photo with the animals (possibly the young) in a more natural setting. All my photos were through a fence or trying to get a good picture from the Safari wagon. Just a thought but it was a nice day.
