Drive-Thru Adventure
Hours & Pricing

What you will experience

Drive your vehicle on our mile-long path through the sanctuary to see a variety of animals right from your car.

We know that times have been hard on people. If you cannot afford the full standard Vehicle Only Adventure price, you can make a donation. We want to be a blessing to others.

Over 75% of our budget comes from guests being able to come and experience our entire park. Since we don’t know when we will be able to open all our Adventures, any amount you give above and beyond the standard admission cost of $25, will help support our animals and our mission to provide food, shelter, and care.

Entry gates close 30 minutes prior to the closing of the park (For details see our Hours & Pricing page).

All Adventures depend on weather conditions and the season we are in to be able to offer them. The Drive-Thru may be closed due to muddy paths. We always determine what we can offer 2 hours before the park opens.
