Safari park: Drive my own car OR Take a wagon ride?

Hi,

I have a plan to Virginia Safari park this Spring.

This is my first time for the safari park.

I need the suggestion.

Should I drive my own car or should I take a wagon ride?

Which one do you think it's more fun or better experience?

^_^

IMHO, there is so much more to see & do in Virginia.. Springtime is a spectacular time to... Explore Shenandoah National Park...Take a drive down the Blue Ridge Parkway.. Walk the Peaks of Otter trails..Take a walk on the beach in Virginia...

I have to agree; I would not waste my time or money on VA Safari Park. It's OK for small children but that's about it.

I disagree with the two other posters. My 24 year old daughter and I went to the Safari Park and had a blast, we had loads of laughs at the antics of the animals, including an elk sticking her entire head into our car to get a bucket of feed near the gear shift. That said, our car was a total mess with crumbs and food inside and slobber and nose prints on the car.

We had so much fun, I took my husband back there a few months later. We went on a busy summer afternoon, the backup on the road in the park was like the Beltway and the animals were totally disinterested. They stayed in the shade and weren't hungry. If you go on a hot day, be sure to go early.
