Policies

For the safety of our guests and animals, please do not bring your pets or service animals along to the Lazy 5. Nothing will prepare your pooch to meet a giraffe! Pets can quickly become terrified and react badly.

Please do not feed the zebras. They can bite!

What others are saying

"We absolutely love Lazy 5. We always do the wagon ride and it's totally worth the extra money. It's nice to have the wagon drivers to tell us about the animals, from their names to their native country to other neat factoids about them. I learn something different every time we go. My 3 year old asks us all the time when we can go back!”

“A very neat special experience. I recommend to take the wagon ride instead of your own vehicle. The walk around the pens is nice too. Get an extra bucket of food for you and your family, especially if your kids can't hold onto their buckets very well. The food will go fast!”
