Hop on the Deer Park Express and take a scenic train ride through the backwoods full of deer. Make it a contest of who can spot the most deer during your train ride, or sit back and enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of nature.

After visiting the Kiddie Zoo or completing your train ride, you can continue throughout the park, where there are many other feeding adventures to enjoy. For bird lovers, you can feed the Parakeets at the Budgie Barn and take in their beautiful colors and unique sounds.
