Things to know before you come:
- Buy your tickets in advance – This year we are limiting our ticket availability. YOU MUST PURCHASE A TICKET ONLINE TO BE ADMITTED. We will accept walk ins IF we have availability.
- This IS NOT GUIDED. This is a self-guided fun exploration of the farm.
- Dress for the cold on a farm – Even if the day seems warm at your house, dress for cold weather and wind. The Reindeer Farm is located just miles from the Knik Glacier, and we get a lot of wind. A lot. So bare minimum, bring a windbreaker, but gloves and a hat never hurt anyone. And remember, it’s a farm, so there is dirt and dust.
- Bring cash – Most of the activities are free with admission, but there are things that cost extra, like the food vendors, and many of them only take cash. (We will only be offering our Espresso stand at this event and they accept cards)
- Be photo ready – Bring your phone or camera fully charged and ready to capture all the fun shots of your kids having the best time. We don’t have any electrical plugs available for phones, so if you need an extra battery, bring it!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What to wear:
A: Not white! This is a farm. You will be getting dirty. Boots are usually good. If it’s a hot day, tennis shoes. But closed toed shoes.
Q: Will I get to feed the animals?
A: Yes, as long as the animals are hungry you may feed the reindeer, alpacas, highland cattle and other animals over the fence. You will not enter any animals pens. And the animals will get full. But you are still welcome to pet and take photos of them.
If you want to be guaranteed to feed the reindeer and other animals, you should come on a winter experience tour or summer experience tour.
Q: Will we take walk ins on the day of the event?
A: Only if there is availability. People with reservations have a guaranteed spot. If we are sold out, you will need to wait until the next available time slot.
Q: What if I’m late to my scheduled tour?
A: It’s ok, you will lose out on some of your time, each tour is allotted 2 hours. Please arrive in the time slot you book. If you come late, you are still expected to depart on your scheduled time.
Q: Can I get a refund?
A: Tickets are 100% refundable up to 24 hours prior to your reservation time. Within the 24 hour window, tickets are non refundable.
Q: How many people per time slot?
A: 300, however there may be more than 300 people on the farm at any given time.
Q: Is this a guided tour?
A: No, you can move about the farm at your own pace, go where you would like! But plan to depart when your time is up, to help us keep our numbers from getting congested.
