    My husband and I went to Arbuckle Wilderness in June 2014. The walk-through “zoo” almost made me cry for the very few animals who were locked up in the small, waterless, treeless, grassless enclosures. Fortunately, there were only four types of animals confined in the “zoo.” Seriously: NO WATER or grass or trees. Nothing. None of the rides, snack bars, or other entertainment were open. The drive-through “wilderness” was — as others have pointed out — mostly llamas and donkeys, but we did enjoy seeing the American Bison, Brahman Bulls, alpaca, camels, ostriches, emus, zebras, and David Deer. The only caged animal we saw was one lonely hyena, which hopefully means the other cages were mercifully empty. We had a coupon along with a military discount and only two people, so this trip was not a total waste of money. I could not imagine paying $100 or more for this experience, though. I think a “per vehicle” fee would make much more sense. The glory days of the Arbuckle Wilderness are clearly over. It would be wonderful if new management would restore it to a humane home for its inhabitants.

    dont waste your time or money on this!!i went there about 6 years ago and yes this was truly a marvelous experience…. this time around not hardly close.1) there are only two zebras, one camel and a hyena that is hiding and never comes out. there are plenty of al parkas and miniature donkeys that come up to the car close to the entrance but the rest of it is plain empty… the limas 6 are caged up in one enclosure and look honestly miserable 2) the entrance is not even manned you have to exit your vehicle figure out that you have to go the dark and dingy gift shop where you are meet with unknowledgeable and an interested hosts that just want to get your money and say okay bye.3) the amusement zone has the go carts and the slide and the petting zoo and the bumper cars… for one, half the go carts dont work. half way through our ride the go cart run out of fuel the guy had to push us back to the starting gate and then promise every one that they would be reopened in 30 minutes when they would be back with the fuel…petting zoo has three goats and a rabbit4) the reptile house only has 1 tortoise and about three iguanas and the whole place is dark i would not recommend you wasting your money or trying to revisit for old memories… they shall i promise be ruined

    Six years ago my wife and I took our two kids thru the park…………. We all loved it our kids were 16 and 13 at the time. We had a blast and thought it was well worth the money we spent. Yesterday we went again thinking we were going to have a re-run. NOT hardly. Most of the animals were missing from their cages. The big animals like the two rhinos, giraffes, tiger were no where to be found. But no signs were posted prior to entering telling potential customers about the missing collection of animals. Don’t spend your money thinking you’re going to see any animals out of the ordinary.

    I should probably rate this one, but my young children got enough out of it I will give it two stars. The drive through was too expensive ($17 per person) for just a bunch of llamas and donkeys. A few camels and one rhino and a few deer, lots of geese. Some ostriches. Not worth it. No big animals. Was at least thinking my kids could enjoy the petting zoo. No animals at all. Not even a rabbit. The facility is beautiful but completely deserted. The gift shop was mostly empty, and the girl who sold us the tickets told us there would be small animals including kangaroos. What a joke. This is a shame since the area is gorgeous.
