this was one of my families favorite things to do.  it's sort of a cross between a zoo and an animal safari.  the animals roam in large outdoor pens and you drive your car through to take pictures and see the animals "in the wild."  in reality they tell you that these are wild animals(which they are) but the seem tame, and are use to being feed.  they tell you to keep your windows up and not to feed the animals, when we went through we saw several people with thier windows down and none of the animals seemed to care one way or another. you could tell they were use to cars and people by the way they reacted (they waited for traffic before moving but stood next to the cars like if they were at a cross walk)  sometimes it even appeared that they would pose for pictures (as you can see several bears and wolves doing in my photos) the animals were great, very well behaved and offered loads of viewing enjoyment. they do have a gift shop and a small hamburger type resturant.  i would highly recommend this place to anyone who love to take pictures of animals, your sure to get a great shot =)
