Are outside pets allowed into the Drive-Thru or other parts of the park?

Personal animals are not allowed on the Aikman Wildlife Adventure property outside of Registered Service Animals in limited areas.

Is the Walk-Thru path wheelchair accessible?

The paths are constructed with loose dirt and gravel as well as a few paved with concrete.  Some spots are a little rougher than others and will take a little more effort to go on.  If you are wanting to enjoy a Wagon Tour Adventure, we have extra space at the front of the wagon that manually operated wheelchairs slide into. 
*Please inquire with us about electric wheelchairs and for your specific needs.

What are your "rules of the road" for your drive-thru?

All vehicles must have solid tops and doors on to enter the Drive-Thru section of our park. Please see our Rules of the Road for additional information.

Can I feed the animals?

Drive-Thru animals can only be fed from our Wagon Adventure or our Behind The Scenes Adventure. We provide you the food for both of these Adventures.

Can I get out of my vehicle?

While in the Drive-Thru section of our park you must remain inside of your vehicle at all times.

Is smoking allowed at your park?

Our park is smoke-free and our animals really appreciate it! Smoking and vaping are prohibited in the park.

You are welcome to bring your own lunch and sit under one of the trees in the parking lot. However, no outside food can be brought into the park.

Can children under two participate in the Behind The Scenes Adventure?

Yes, at the parent’s or legal guardian’s discretion.

Are you still open on bad weather days?

If there is bad weather or in the colder months, please call 217-268-3500 or check out our Facebook Page the day you are coming out to confirm which specific Adventures are being offered for the day. All Adventures are dependent on weather conditions and the season. We always determine what we can offer 2 hours before the park opens on that day.
