ABOUT The Olympic Game Farm

 

Friendly llamas and yak eat bread from your hand, clowning bears stand up and wave, and elk and buffalo peacefully graze in the pastures.

Experience wildlife unlike anywhere else, with a drive-through adventure where animals come right up to your vehicle to greet you. Olympic Game Farm accepts "in-need" wildlife as space permits, and with the proper authority approvals. The farm cannot accept local animals from the wild without permission from Washington State Fish and Wildlife.

The Olympic Game Farm was originally designed as a housing facility for the animal actors of Disney Studios. From the 1950s to 1972, during breaks from filming, the animals were trained, housed and cared for at the farm which at that time was called Disney's Wild Animal Ranch. In the summer of 1972, after Roy Disney passed away, the farm opened to the public as a test run to see if it could sustain itself financially and provide long-term care for the animals without the funding of Disney Studios.

GUIDED BUS ADVENTURE

Sit back and relax on our 20-passenger bus. Your tour guide and driver will fill you in on the Game Farm while you enjoy feeding the animals.

The driving tour covers 84 acres of terrain filled with wildlife. The non-predatory animals are not hesitant to come right up to your window and stick their heads inside looking for a piece of bread! Predatory animals, like the world-famous waving Kodiak bears, are in an enclosure and do not approach the vehicle, however you can still toss them bread from the bus.

 

There is also a petting zoo area that includes a herd of goats, a reptile room where you can visit with snakes and other reptiles, and a small aquarium where you can see fish. You can visit the Historical Studio Barn, which is home to antique movie memorabilia like movie scripts, original movie sets, educational animal information, and accounts of the Game Farm’s accomplishments while working with Disney Studios. There's also a concession stand and gift shop you'll get an opportunity to visit after the guided driving adventure.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 
 

+ Do I need to make reservations for the guided bus tour?

Reservations are highly recommended, but if we still have seats available for walk-ups, our driver will be happy to help you! Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the departure time you would like if you do not have a reservation (in front of the Port Angeles Visitor Center for Port Angeles departures or in front of the Olympic Game Farm BUS STOP sign for Olympic Game Farm departures). Our driver can accept cash payment or any major credit card.

+ Are we allowed to bring our own bread?

Yes, you may bring your own bread to feed the animals, however ONLY wheat or whole grain bread is permitted. Multi-grains and other heavily-grained wheat bread can be too rich for the animals.

Each animal has a well-balanced diet based on nutritional needs as determined by a veterinary care plan.

These items are fed daily during business hours and after closing.
