FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why is there such a short entry period?
The cub encounters can only happen in a short window of time. This is done for the health and safety of the cubs and the safety of the visitors. The cubs grow bigger every day and The Lion Habitat Ranch can only safely provide animal encounters for a limited time. The Lion Habitat Ranch’s number one priority is the safety of the animal and its visitors.
If I win, why must I book and have my encounter by January 2nd?
Again, this is a safety ‘thing’. Because we are dealing with live animals (and growing babies) we are not able to extend the period beyond the 2nd of January. The lion cub experience MUST occur by January 2nd otherwise it is void. This is done for the safety of the lions and YOU.
Why do I have to tell you if I have cats?
Because house cats can carry diseases that are dangerous to our growing cubs. It doesn’t disqualify you; we just need to be aware so we can take precautions.
Can I bring my child to the lion cub encounter if I win?
Yes; all minors must be accompanied by an adult. All winners can bring one (1) guest.
About The Lion Habitat Ranch
The Lion Habitat Ranch is the home and retirement facility for the African lions previously seen at The MGM Grand Hotel. This state-of-the-art ranch, run by skilled trainer Keith Evans, has actively worked to preserve and protect wild lion habitats, as well as provide the best care, love, and social environment for their big kitties. Even though the MGM exhibit has closed, these cats are still in need of daily care, interaction, and love. These cats will live out their lives in their prides surrounded by the trainers that have handled them since they were babies.
In an effort to continue to educate the public, as well as share with the community the importance of responsible exotic animal handling, The Lion Habitat Ranch now offers self-guided tours, private tours, and Trainer 4 A Day Experiences (reservations required).
