Zoos attempt to re-create the plains and jungles of the locales their animals originate from, just as offices attempt to re-create the naturally occurring cubicles that once dotted the banks of the Euphrates River. Get out of your natural habitat with this Groupon.
$16 for a 60-Minute Safari Trolley Tour for Two (Up to $32 Value)
During safari tours, trolleys roll through more than 2 miles of trails, parting the wild terrains as guests keep their eyes peeled for more than 30 species of animals from all over the world. Each guest gets one bucket of feed to entice the bison, elk, ostriches, and zebras that mosey up to the trolleys to munch and pose for photos. Throughout the tour, the knowledgeable guides elucidate facts and answer questions about the park's history and zoological residents.
Hidden Valley Animal Adventure
Hidden Valley Animal Adventure's 60 acres are home to more than 30 species of animals—including zebras, wildebeest, and emu—who freely roam and peacefully coexist among the park's rolling plains and lush forests. Here, the park’s safaris leisurely tour through more than two miles of trails that cut through the non-African badlands. Guests hop aboard trolleys, soaking in the scenery as knowledgeable guides broaden their zoological horizons and impart facts about the park. Upon meeting a slew of animals along the path, guests outstretch feed-filled hands to nourish passing llama, camels, and hungry groundskeepers. During winter months, horse-drawn carriages gracefully escort guests through snow-covered paths behind strapping belgian draft steeds.
Located on Hidden Valley's expansive grounds, The Lodge accommodates guests with rustic hotel rooms, and its woodsy event space hosts banquets, weddings, and special events. After daylong romps through animal habitats, guests can partake in locally grown foodstuffs and libations at the Trailside Grill & Bar, sating thirsts worked up while trying to outspit a llama.
