I come back every year to see Jack. His enthusiasm is contagious. This year I brought my 6 year old niece and she sat spellbound through the entire show. Jack is not only funny and entertaining but his conservation message should be heard by all !

We are a member and bought a front row seat hopping to get the best view of the animals. However the animals were put up on a table and from our vantage point half the view of the animals were cut off. We felt that if the table were shorter or slanted at an angle towards the audience or if the animals were walked on and off the stage by means of the front of the stage instead of right on and off to the table we would have enjoyed the performance more.

There's not a bad seat in the auditorium, and the stairs are easy to climb. Children can't wander off too far since the entrance goes in a circle. The concessions are reasonably priced and the gift shop has a nice variety of things for sale.

It was over the heads of our younger grandchildren & Jack talks very fast for them to listen to. I would recommend it to animal loving adults, however.

Thought it was fast paced and varied. I would especially recommend it to children of all ages (although not infants!). We had several children seated next to us and they seemed enthralled by the show.

Reviewer: Mary

I did not realize that the show didn't work for young kids, five years and younger. I didn't realize Jack would talk so much but I certainly enjoyed it. I know the show was too short to really have an intermission at least for the kids to move around.

Jack's enthusiasm for what he does and for his animal ambassadors was enlightening and uplifting. Some great news on animal recoveries is always welcome. The opportunity to see animals I would never encounter outside of a zoo is always a treat.

ALTHOUGH HE IS SO WELL LOVED..HE SPOKE VERY FAST AND NOT VERY CLEARLY. THE SCREENS ARE SMALL FOR THE DETAIL OF THE SMALLER ANIMALS. I Was really hoping for that IMAX experience ...but we still had a fun time with our grandchildren and they learned a lot about animals....It was entertaining.

It was great seeing the different animals. I enjoyed the video portion also except where our seats were located we couldn't see the screen well, sideways view on one and too far from the other screen to see it well.

fans of Jack Hanna since Wild Kingdom days Love the stories and the animals

Reviewer: chris

not very much to be excited about,... a couple of movies,... a couple of rare animals. thought we'd see more moves from the animals, hear more stories, figured he'd have a bird of some sort soar through the room like out at the medieval knights dinner theater, thought he'd have more demonstrations of the skills of the animals,... not necessarily tricks, but demonstrations. getting out of the parking lot was a nightmare.

Jack is an amazing man and did such a great show. If you haven't seen him, make sure you do when he comes back to the area. His animals were so adorable, plus his stories, videos, bloopers, etc were so much fun to see and hear about. Thanks for an incredible show!
