This place keeps changing for the better. You can dine or have a drink next door and watch the flamingos. Great attraction for all members of the family. Now has rides.

We love the WW zoo and aquarium. It never seems very crowded and the variety of animals is good, but yes, as others have stated, there are a lot of birds! This zoo has a pleasant old-school vibe about it, which I love. You can also get very close to the animals- they have really designed the enclosures to showcase... More

We were excited to spend an afternoon here. We saw a wide variety of animals. We even fed giraffes, sea lions, and stingrays! The staff was friendly.

It is a wonderful local zoo that has expanded so much through the years. There will be another new section to open next year. The aquarium is absolutely beautiful and so well maintained. There tree shaded walkways everywhere. Which is important in the desert heat when required. The animal exhibits are all outside and well maintained and room for the... More

My wife and I have been to several zoos but this is the first one that also included an aquarium. The zoo is well maintained and very clean and has a very nice gift shop. It seemed like there were more birds than animals but still had a wide variety to view and informative signs at each location. The aquarium... More

Had a wonderful time with family there today. Not their busy time to it wasn't packed and several parts were closed. We had to rent a wheel chair for my sister and they could really use some better ones or make the transitions from paved to unpaved areas more level.

We enjoyed our afternoon at the zoo. Their specialty is birds, or so it seems. But there are so many animals, many of them not in actual cages. There are lots of places where you can sit in the shade as you walk around. And feeding the giraffes are the highlight for my sister!! I recommend visiting this zoo and... More

My wife and I went to The Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium many years ago and just went back for the 2nd time yesterday. They made it so much bigger and better than it was. We went to see all the animals first and then off to the Aquarium. We saw many animals and sea life that were saved by... More

It was a year ago. I plan to go and visit again. My husband and I had fun riding the train though it seems even better for children. The upclose encounter with these animals is very enjoyable. We appreciated the keepers show with several animals in the ampitheater.

The site is overall pleasant, it is quite big but does not feel like it. It is very clean, toilets are pristine. Animals seem well take care of, we saw baby felines, it's a good sign, if their animals breed. Only few negative points, entrance is ready $34, but they nickel and dime you for everything inside, which is annoying.... More
