Customer review: "I enjoyed every moment! I loved feeding the animals every morning, collecting the eggs and going in the hot tub. The alpacas are super cute and spat at my dad and the chicken with feathers growing out its feet looks super cool! I am sad to leave and wish we could have stayed longer"
