We have never done this, what is it and is it just for children?
Wendy this is one of those areas that I think you should visit at least once. Plus the train ride is a nice excursion. Besides having an area where children can interact with small animals there is a building where you can learn various things about animals and nature including a look into the animal care facilities. If you're lucky you may even catch one of the animals being treated. We saw a tiger being given a physical examination one time.
I think you should see it. I don't think it's just for children
It's the only place you get to meet Jiminy Cricket.
It's great over there. Lots of things to look at and CMs to answer questions. We always spend a good hour over there even without going to the smelly goat bit.
We always get as far as the sign and then turn back I honestly thought it was an area for children to play with the animals
Oddly enough we have never seen Jiminy back there. But then we don't venture back there on every trip either.
No, it isn't just for children. I enjoy it as well as my 'big' kids. The train journey itself is a nice sit down in the heat of the day. Quite often CMs come out with small animals/snakes and you can talk with the CM and get a chance to hold the animal. We have seen operations on two animals while we have been there and have met Rafiki and Jiminy Cricket. Im not sure if Pocohontas is still there but we have met her there too in the past.
There is a nice little petting zoo and the inside area is a great place to read and learn.
One thing that does bug me is that there is nowhere to get a drink or have something to eat but maybe there is a reason for that just as there is for AK having no straws. We all love the conservation area.
Arrgghhhh not snakes
I don't know if I want to go now
It's OK Wendy, you can just walk away. lol
It happened to us at a backstage tour at Busch Gardens, we were told that there was something special for us to meet. I walked over with the rest of the group, saw the snake, screamed and ran away the guide came after me and apologised.
I'm grateful that I've never seen a snake there.
We like to go there. Herself is a fan of the Tamarinds and they have the Lion species there. We also like petting the goats who are most assuredly NOT SMELLY!!!
The boy when he was but two tried kissing the goats! It's really quite neat. You can stand for hours (well, ok many, many minutes) trying to pick out all the animals on the mural in the entry of the building.
We've seen Pocahontas there, and yep, Jimminey. Also, the racoon from Pocahontas.
The little train ride is fun.
The raccoon would be Meeko.
