I have been here dozens of times over the years with my family. At first it was an adventure and now I go to check on the animals. I worry far too much about how small the enclosures are. Two jaguars have been in a small chain link enclosure dozens of years. Bare minimum. As the zoo expands the enclosures... More

We heard about this on Arizona Highways TV program. We loved being up close with the animals in the petting zoo. Don't miss this gem of a zoo and aquarium!

I would hardly call this a "zoo", but more of a bird sanctuary! There was no real animal attractions here, but so many bird attractions, that's all we felt it was. We have a bogo pass, and have only used it once, that is how much this zoo impressed us. Not even our 2 year old was into it. I... More

Lots of animals that are up close. Rides are overpriced but be sure to check out the new area in the back.

This is a great zoo. Lots of animals to see and things to do. Go in the spring, fall or winter...Arizona gets pretty hot in the summer time and some of the animals arent out. We went during Easter weekend and lots of animals were out.

Rides are about $5/person Train ride is absolutely not worth the price. it goes in a small circle with no stops and you only see a few animals The Jungle boat tour is just a... More

I simply dont get all the positive reactions on this park. We love to visit Zoo and since this was better than the Phoenix Zoo according to Tripadvisor we went to see this one. Boy did we get dissappointed ! First of all the entrance fee is rather high, a couple in front of us even turned around and went... More
