Petting Area

Feed and visit friendly farm animals in the Village Walk-Thru. It’s especially popular with our youngest visitors!

Budgie Adventure Aviary

Surround yourself with hundreds of parakeets in the Budgie Adventure Aviary. The colorful birds will perch on your hand and feed from your seed stick. Available for purchase in the Gift Shop!

Budgie feed sticks are available at the Trading Post Gift Shop for $2 each. Open daily until one hour before closing.

Giraffe Feeding

Get up close to our tallest residents and even feel their tongues as they take romaine leaves from your palm. This feeding opportunity includes a souvenir cup to take home.

Romaine Cups are available at the Trading Post Gift Shop for $5 each.

Kangaroo Walk-About

The Texas Outback is now open! Enjoy a walk or a hop through the Kangaroo Walk-About. Watch as kangaroos jump, leap or enjoy a lazy nap in the sun. Look for mother kangaroos with joeys (baby kangaroos) in their pouches.
