Fall and Halloween are two of Big Joel and Mimi's favorite times of the year. So the park undergoes a little bit of a "spooky" transformation, but do not worry it is not too spooky for the little ones. The park of course will be decorated fall and Halloween themed for the season which is what we call Big Joel's Spooky Safari. There will be lots of photo opportunities in addition to the regular ones and we will have all of our regular activities that we offer throughout the season available which you can find out more about at . Of course don't forget about our main attraction at the park, all the ANIMALS!
The only change for this fall is we will not be offering wagon rides, we know they are a fan favorite and will likely be back in the future. All of the rain this year caused our pond levy to fail creating some deep ruts and muddy areas making it unsafe to operate our wagon rides in the area.
Big Joel's Spooky Safari begins September 26th with the last day being November 3rd. Our operating days and hours during this time are 9-5pm Thursday - Saturday and 11-5pm on Sundays. In addition November 3rd is your last chance to visit Big Joel's Safari for the 2019 season until spring 2020. We look forward to seeing you this fall and the animals do too!

Please note that Camel and Pony rides are only available on the weekends, Saturday 10:30-3:30pm and Sundays 12-4:00pm.
