Aikman Wildlife Adventure is the perfect place for your next school field trip!
Guests will ride on a Wagon Tour where they will feed and interact with animals in our Drive-Thru. Visitors will be educated about the animals while on the Wagon Tour by one of our knowledgeable guides. Guests will then explore the Walk-Thru on their own, which includes the Petting Zoo, playground, and other animal habitats.
Before you book read the rules.
Children age 2 and under are free and do not count toward the group minimum. Price bracket is determined by the total number of guests attending. Payment must be taken care of prior to or on the day of your visit.
We recommend making reservations several months in advance if possible. The following slots are available for group tours during the week: 9:00 am, 10:00 am, 11:00 am, and 1:00 pm. Available time slots are determined by group size and seasonal hours. Groups are allowed a total of 90 minutes to complete their Wagon and Walk-Thru tours. A final headcount must be provided one week prior to your scheduled visit. We require groups to pay in one transaction by check, credit card, or cash.
If additional guests attend without our knowledge we cannot guarantee space on the reserved wagon(s).
