Welcome to Animal Gardens Theme Park, our beautiful, 40-acre venue which serves as home to The Dancing Horses Theater and Echo the talking and singing parrot, most noted for his recent appearances on America's Got Talent, as well as 16 species of exotics and over 60 hay-eating animals.
While you're here, don't forget to visit our highly acclaimed year-round attractions: The Dancing Horses Show, a live equestrian extravaganza which has been described by journalists as a blend between Las Vegas and Disney, and our Exotic Bird Show, featuring eight large parrots that talk, sing, and perform tricks.
Echo the Singing Bird!:
Echo stars in America's Got Talent and right here at Animal Gardens! Whether it's on TV or live, our Exotic Bird Show is always entertaining and fun for everyone!
The Dancing Horses:
You can also experience the enchantment of our Dancing Horses (additional charges apply). When you see the pageantry and the beautiful blending of skill and communications between horse and human, you will become enthralled with the music and the motion. You will slip into a world of imagination and enchantment. Watch the majesty of these exquisitely trained horses against the backdrop of our state-of-the-art Dancing Waters. The mesmerizing beauty and synchronization of the spectacularly illuminated Dancing Waters will take your breath away!
Wagon Rides: Tractor-pulled Wagon Rides to Indian Village to pick a pumpkin.
Pony Rides: Ride our fun, friendly ponies under the circus tent in the summer or in the warmth of the Dancing Horses Theater in the winter.
Train Rides: Hop on our own train for a ride down our beautiful Wildlife Trail and see our most exotic, wild animals!
Petting Zoo: Petting zoos are known for their warmth and charm, but here, at Animal Gardens, we offer something special: the barn is staffed by college interns, all of whom are interested in careers in animal-related fields. They serve to help educate as well as make the animals accessible to one and all. Animal Gardens is home to some 16 species of exotic creatures as well as 60 hay-eating animals.
Admission price entitles you to enjoy our baby barn, outdoor petting zoo, and our nationally famous bird show!
