What makes this zoo special is they have over 200 rescued animals that have been abused, exploited, or sick, and this is a refuge for them.

There are tigers, monkeys, camels, wallabies, horses, tortoises, pythons, bears, cougars, plus a ton more animals to see!

A more intimate approach to the zoos in the area, plus your admission is helping the direct care of these animals.

Picnic areas and refreshments are available as well as popped popcorn (hence the name) to feed some of the wildlife and birds.
