Located between Arthur and Arcola, less than 6 miles west from Interstate 57 exit 203, this is a wildlife drive-thru park where you can get up close and personal with animals you’ve only seen behind fencing at a zoo or on television. You’ll have the opportunity to see and take pictures of animals right out of your vehicle while you drive the 1-mile long path through our Drive-Thru.
Once you have driven through the Drive-Thru, you can experience our Walk-Thru Adventure, where you’ll see Peacocks, Hyenas, Wolfdogs, Lemurs, and much more, including our large Petting Zoo area. The newly added Prehistoric Museum also features true-to-scale models of prehistoric creatures like dinosaurs, primates, and more. Why explore fossils you can't touch when you can take selfies with realistic sculptures of the real thing?
With a great gift shop and plenty to explore year-round, Aikman is ready to welcome you for your next adventure!
