Big Joel's Winter Wonderland


What is Big Joel's Winter Wonderland you may ask? Well do you like Christmas lights and animals? Then come on out to Big Joel's Winter Wonderland for both because the park will be decked out for the holiday season. With our walk thru experience going into the evening hours it will be much different than your typical Big Joel's visit as the walking paths and areas will be changed for the holidays. Many of our warm weather loving creatures will be off display keeping nice and toasty, but there will still be plenty of animal friends to see! Keep warm by the fire pits, grab some hot cocoa at Rudy's Refreshments, and more. We look forward to seeing you this holiday season!
