I would recommend the lion walk and all the activities at the Lion park it is an amazing place with fantastic staff . - Angela Beevers(Terry Byrne)

This was an unforgettable experience. I am so happy I was able to come and see your park! It truly was the highlight of my trip. I did the cheetah walk, the lion walk, the 3 hour safari and the cub interaction. Your staff was amazing, and they made my visit outstanding. This experience is the best and I thank you all. - Jolene Dahl

My parents did the Lion walk and they couldn't stop talking about how amazing the experience was. They enjoyed every minute. The pictures that were taken were so well done. They keep asking to go back. Thank you for the great experience and for treating them to such a wonderful encounter. - Cindy Bagg

This was amazing. You get to walk with the "teenage" cubs - they are about 18 months old according to the trainers. These guys are way more interactive than the cheetahs. You are allowed to take pictures with them as they sit on a rock and lay in front of you. Walking with them is amazing, it's feeling you can't explain you just have to experience it. I highly recommend this activiity, especially after playing with the baby cubs - as you can see how much they mature and grow in just a few short months. And to hear them roar when you are that close to you is both terrifying and exhilerating. - Julianne Sullivan

The Lion Walk was truly the best experience of my life! Being able to interact with the sweetest, cutest lions ever! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute with them and hope to have the opportunity to do it again! Thanks for making my experience so special:) - Mary Colburn
