Aikman Wildlife Adventures Grand Opening
Friday, May 27, 2016 - Monday, May 30, 2016
Aikman's Wildlife Adventure
UPDATE: We wanted to let everyone know that we are moving our grand opening weekend to the first weekend in July. We had planned for a grand opening Memorial Day weekend; however, the weather has not cooperated with us. Four consecutive dry days are needed to install our walking paths, and we have not had that at the Park for the past month. We have multiple projects that cannot be started until those paths are in place. We are sorry for the delay and cannot thank everyone enough for coming and supporting us. The response has been truly amazing and we are excited to share the walk-through with everyone soon. Our goal is to open the walk-through before our grand opening. We will keep you posted on our progress, so be sure to check our Facebook page for updates and for our extended drive-through hours beginning Memorial Day weekend. Grand Opening weekend will begin Friday, July 1 and will also coincide with Arthur’s huge fireworks display of Saturday, July 2nd.
The park will be open through November 1st.
We are excited to announce our soft-opening date of Friday, March 11. The soft-opening will be for our drive-through only and will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until our grand-opening of the entire park Memorial Day weekend. During this soft-opening period visitors will be able to drive their vehicles through the park to see and take pictures of the animals. The cost will be $20/vehicle and there will also be restrooms, refreshments and souvenirs available in the lobby of our restaurant building. There will also be camel rides available on Fridays and Saturdays for $5/ride. Our hours will be 10:00am – 5:00pm Fridays and Saturdays and noon – 5:00pm on Sundays. We will be closed Easter Sunday. Feeding of the animals will take place on our wagon tours and will not be available until our grand-opening. We can’t wait to see you all out at the park!Aikman's Wildlife Adventure is located at
