What is Wild Wonders?
Wild Wonders is where kids and adults can connect with animals from all over the world. Through live tours and interactive programs, our 120 animal ambassadors and educators will take you on a dynamic adventure you won’t forget.
Our motto is “Rescue. Educate. Conserve”, and our educators will share the stories behind the animals, the adaptations they have to help them survive in the wild, and what conservation challenges they face.
Our goal is to excite the public and foster a desire to preserve and learn about wildlife, and the important role they play in the planet we share.
All of our onsite Animal Experience tours are by appointment only, and must be booked through our website. Your tour will be exclusively for your group, allowing your keeper / educator to focus only on you.
We are OPEN! Book your tour now!
OUT OF AN OVERABUNDANCE OF CONCERN FOR EVERYONE’S HEALTH, NO CHILDREN UNDER 5 OR PEOPLE WITH UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS ARE ALLOWED AT THIS TIME TO VISIT WILD WONDERS.
People 65 and over may want to consider visiting at a later date.
PLEASE READ OUR SAFETY PROTOCOLS BEFORE BOOKING YOUR VISIT!

Let us introduce you to animals from all over the world with our Behind the Scenes Experience. Your keeper / educator will lead you on an interactive, educational, and fun tour of our 5-acre facility where you’ll meet and interact with many of our amazing animal ambassadors. The price is $175 for 4 people. Additional adults (18+) are $30, and additional children (17 and under) are just $15. Our Behind the Scenes experiences are approximately 60 minutes long and are offered every day of the week from 9AM – 1PM.

Meet our Cheetahs
Victor, Masika, and Hasani are our majestic cheetah ambassadors. All of our unique Animal Experiences include a stop at our cheetah exercise yard where your keeper / educator will tell you more about them and their cheetah cousins in the wild.
Join us for our Meet and Greet a Cheetah Experience! After a “cheetah chat” with your keeper / educator, we will bring one of the cheetahs out on a leash where you’ll get a photo op of yourself near one of these incredible animals.
Our Breakfast with the Beasts Experience affords you a luscious breakfast directly in front of the cheetah exercise yard. As you enjoy your meal, your keeper / educator will tell you about our cheetahs, and the challenges cheetahs face in the wild.
