But I think that they charge too much for what you get to see. Just glad I didn't visit with a family of four.

At first the entry price shocked us ($78 for two people), but once inside, we knew we had gotten a bargain. Huge facility, you should allow at least 4 hours to fully appreciate what is going on here. I visited about 12 years ago, and was impressed then. Even more so now. They continue to expand and update and refurbish.... More

Although smaller than the Phoenix Zoo, the WW Zoo & Aquarium is my favorite place to take visitors. You might ask why, when we live close to the beautiful White Tank Mountains, are just across town from Scottsdale and merely a few miles from Prescott, Sedona and Flagstaff. There's just something special about the WW Zoo & Aquarium! One if... More

I've been to some big zoos (Detroit, Toledo, Phoenix), and this zoo was something special! We felt so much closer to the animals, it was a truly unique experience. The layout of the zoo was easy to follow so that you didn't miss any exhibits. My young children (4, 2.5, 2.5) were really engaged and were able to see the... More

Entrance fees were high (as were any refreshments). See if there are any coupons before you go. Take quarters for the feeder stations. Kids absolutely loved the giraffe and stingray feedings. There a LOT of birds on display, but also monkeys, kangaroos and more. Very cute baby Zebra was a hit. Aquarium was nice with a variety of water life.... More

I'm local and I'm almost afraid to share how cool this zoo is for fear of it becoming too crowded. I am a member of the Phoenix Zoo because I believe in what they do, but this zoo is way more fun. Highlights: Feel much more up close with the animals The aquarium is really cool and offers a unique... More

Hi KaliMau, Thank you so much for the kind review! We love hearing about our guests enjoying their time with us. Our fees are a little higher than other zoos, but keep in mind we are privately owned and do not receive any money from the state. Thanks again for the kind review, Keli and the WWZ Crew More

The zoo had a variety of animals, but their cages and pens were quite small. Also, the wire on the cages made it hard to take photos. The animals looked healthy, but the large cats were pacing constantly in such a small space. We fed the giraffes which was cool, and my grandson loved the train ride. Worth a visit... More

Great zoo, very interactive. You can feed giraffes, touch sea life, turtles, dear, and other animals. Very Clean. Expect to be walking primarily on dirt trails. We've been there several times and it's always a great experience. Will certainly return.
