$10 for adults, $8 for kids (<2 free), then $10 for a bucket of feed, and $5 for pony rides. $56 total for my family. A little over priced but we had a great time. We got a few great pics and memories.

Although I hate to discourage a family trying to make some spending money, this was a disappointment. First the admission for adults was $10.00 with no senior rate. The "Petting Zoo" probably was no larger than the size of a large yard and the poor...More
