Don't bother with the groupon unless you just want the mini golf. They give you 40 tokens to use which will only let 4 people ride one time or play maybe 2-3 arcade games.

The groupon is nondescript and only includes mini-golf and 80 tokens. We had to pay extra to visit the petting zoo, which is why we really wanted to go to Colasantis.

From Our Editors

The Experience

For just a moment, visitors to Colasanti's Tropical Gardens might believe they've been whisked away to Madagascar: the call of ring-tailed lemurs and the squawk of parrots echoes around acres of exotic plants. And yet this tropical locale is nestled much closer to home—just outside of Kingsville. The 35-acre family farm keeps visitors entertained year-round with 15 temperature-controlled greenhouses filled with flowering equatorial plants and cacti, a petting farm that brings kids face-to-face with foreign animals without having to go through an ambassador, and carnival attractions.

The Highlights

  • Petting farm home to pygmy goats, llamas, ring-tailed lemur, and a 10-foot alligator (admission fee required)
  • Kid-friendly rides, mini-golf, and indoor playground
  • Arcade room with more than 40 video games
  • Restaurant serving famous broasted chicken, pizza, fresh donuts, and peach drink
  • Home decor and collectibles shop
  • Exotic flowering and tropical plants

Who They Are

In 1924, at the age of 22, Italian-born Aleutario Colasanti followed his dreams of a better life to Kingsville. Facing anti-immigrant sentiments and financial trouble, Alex only worked harder to eke out a living as a farmer. On a fateful trip to Detroit in 1932, he met—and fell in love with—Emma Colagiavanni. Despite her parents' protests, they eloped and started a family, and in 1941, they settled on what would soon become the Colasanti farm. Beginning with just one greenhouse and a small fruit stand, the family's operation grew over the next 30 years to host vegetables, exotic fruit trees, and a conspicuous lack of albatrosses. Though Alex and Emma have since passed, their legacy lives on through their grandchildren and the expansive Colasanti's Tropical Gardens.
