Animal Park

The Adventure Is Closer Than You Think

One of the most unique attractions in the Northeast awaits you at Hidden Valley Animal Adventure!

Just about an hour from Niagara Falls and 50 minutes from Buffalo, NY, you will be treated to a breathtaking natural setting, unique dining experience, and guided trolley rides through our 60+ acre animal park.

Hidden Valley is a truly special experience for the whole family. The hour-long trolley ride through the park will give you the chance to have an up-close and personal interaction with exotic animals like camels, zebra, wildebeest, llama, emu, bison, ostrich, and many more. Nestled in a valley in Varysburg, New York, we have created a special place for you to escape from the ordinary for a little while. Just down the road, but far from normal—come get away and escape to the wild.

Seasonal Tips to Enjoy Your Visit

Fall is a beautiful time of the year at Hidden Valley Animal Adventure. The scenery is spectacular! Be sure to bring a camera. It’s also best to dress in layers. It can be warm in the sun, but cool in the shade. A rain slicker is also a good jacket to have on hand.
