Tour Bus with Guide

from $0.00

Your purchase of admission into the animal park includes the complimentary guided bus tour. Buses run year-round. Please check the calendar page for specific dates the bus is available.

The bus schedule varies with the season, but it is posted on site at the park when you arrive. If you have a large group, with a minimum of 20 people in one party, you need to reserve the guided bus tour in advance. There is an additional charge for private bus rental. We are sorry but we cannot guarantee seating on our regular guided tour buses, they are first-come first-served. You may ride the bus as many times as you like as long as seating is available.

My wife and I went to Branson Missouri back in April 2002 and stopped at this park on the way back to Indianapolis. We really enjoyed it and may come back to it this year.
