Cow and Goat in Petting Zoo

Petting Zoo

Visit our interactive petting zoo presented by  Ponies & Pals Petting Zoo. This attraction is a clean, healthy, safe environment that’s ideal for children and adults!

Move freely among the animals and allow the children to “groom” the animals; brushes are provided! The Ponies & Pals animal family consists of miniature farm animals including goats, sheep, horses, mules, donkeys, potbelly pigs, cows, llamas and alpacas.

Of course, Lance the Lemur – always a favorite at Home for the Holidays - will be returning as well!

  • Admission for additional adults, or adults attending without children, is five coupons per person.
