This is a place where you park you car, and ride in a bus through animal exhibits. This place was about a 2 hour drive. It is located in Cumberland, Ohio. We were able to find it without a problem. You pull into the parking lot, pay $3.00 for parking-not bad-then wait on a shuttle bus to take you to the top a hill where it drops you off. Then you go to the window to pay for your ticket. You have your choice of buses to take-the closed bus with windows or an open-air bus with no windows. Of course the no windows bus costs more $27/person. That's the one we picked. The bus drives you through the exhibits and you get to stop each time there is an animal, and since you are actually in the exhibit it can get as close to the bus as it wants-giving you pretty good pictures, with no fence in the way. The down side is the exhibits are made like the animals natural habitat-which is good, but the exhibits are so large and there is only one road going through it. If the animal is not near the road you won't get to see it very well. When we went though, all of the animals were out and fairly close to the buses! Sometimes the animals stop and stand in the middle of the road and the buses have to stop and wait until the animal decides to move. That happened to us several times, so our tour was longer than usual! We thought it was an overall fun and exciting experience, it reminded me of Jurassic Park alot-minus the dinosaurs of course!!
