$19 for a One-Day Pass and Parking (Up to a $33.50 Value)
Day passes grant access to the four-mile car safari, which takes about an hour and a half to drive through, as well as a "walk-through safari" with rides, a petting zoo, and other attractions. The pass is valid for one person, but you may purchase up to 10 Groupons to gather a group; children younger than 2 are admitted for free.

Lion Country Safari
Lion Country Safari is a zoo with no cages. Instead, more than 900 animals, including the largest zebra herd outside of Africa, roam its 320 acres freely. During drive-through safaris, cars tour seven sections of the preserve—which represent different areas such as western Zimbabwe and the Serengeti—to see llamas, asiatic water buffalo, chimpanzees, and white rhinoceros. Lions have a section all to themselves so that they don't prey on other animals or disturb them with giggles from the pride's late-night slumber parties.
In addition to the four-mile drive, Lion Country Safari's Safari World allows guests to explore rides and attractions as they visit with animals on foot. They can feed giraffes, practice animal-massage techniques at the petting zoo, or hop on the carousel next to Lake Shanalee's paddleboat rides. After kids splash through the interactive Safari Splash waterpark, they can hop onto the ferris wheel or ask exotic birds for advice on how to fly.
