Yall open on memorial day

You guys have to do something about drivers that stop in one spot for 5+ minutes to feed an animal. It’s a drive thru zoo. Shouldn’t take more than 2 hours max to get through it

Please open up wagon rides with masks a six feet between families.

Ugh, no thanks!

Why would anyone wait that long???

I'm still willing to rent an entire wagon for my family of 4. 🙏

So much fun today!!

Can you rent a wagon for a private party ?? How much would that be??

What others are saying

“Beautiful place, wonderful staff and awesome animals. Came from Pennsylvania and couldn't have spent a better afternoon than to be here.”

“...I think Lazy 5 Ranch is amazing and love how one gets to experience being so up close in person with the animals. The wagon holds about 15 people and there are buckets of food provided (more than enough) to feed the animals. The guides are very knowledgeable...Many people wonder about the safety of being so close to the animals, but I have never felt unsafe. The ride is affordable and I recommend it to any visitor or anyone wanting to do something out of the norm.”
