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 45 minutes from downtown Buffalo, NY, 55 minutes from Rochester, NY, and about an hour from Niagara Falls, you will be treated to a breathtaking natural setting, unique dining experience, and guided trolley tour through our 60+ acre animal park.

Hidden Valley is a truly special experience for the whole family. The hour-long Wild Game Safari Tour through the park will give you the chance to have an up-close and personal interaction with exotic animals like camels, zebra, llama, elk, 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, the adventure is closer than you think. Come get away and escape to the wild.
