The shows, which feature birds flying overhead and through the crowd, are presented by John and Dale Stokes of Save Our American Raptors. The interactive experience, held in the Critter Classroom, features hawks, owls, bald eagles and vultures.

Among other activities are barbecue sold at Lover's Leap and activities for kids that include a rock-climbing wall, panning for gems and Fairyland Forest makeovers.
