Lots to see, and a great way to spend the day!

I returned in June of 2015 with my 6 year old son so I could share the experience with him. My first visit was hot and there were hardly any drink places available, and that detracted from... More

Took my one year old son and even though he was a little too young to fully enjoy everything, we had a great time. He spent at least 20 minutes staring at the Spider Monkeys! I will certainly be taking him back when he is older so he can enjoy the petting zoo which was tons of fun, even for... More

We have been visiting annually for the past 10 years and have enjoyed watching the Zoo grow. It is a lot of walking so wear comfy shoes. We went over Christmas break and took our out of town family who really enjoyed it. The new sea lion show is very cute, but keep in mind this isn't sea world, it's... More

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.

First, I really did enjoy seeing a wide variety of animals and the zoo is expansive. Problems / Concerns: 1. Tickets are WAY overpriced 2. 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
