Rustic, unpolished, but MANY exhibits!

We went with friends to see this wildlife zoo and even our friends who live in Phoenix were horrified by the entrance fee. We had coupons that provided some discount, but even with the coupons the cost was unreasonably high. Nice facility, well kept, but there are better zoos that have a lower admission fee.

Get a coupon online before you go. We ended up spending 5 hours here. Dirt pathways, a little run down looking but a ton of things to see and do. You get very close to the animals here, especially the giraffes! Once inside everything costs extra...avoid the $6 log ride that lasts only 2 minutes. The aquarium didn't come close... More

We had a great day at the zoo with kids, parents, and grandparents. It is a great time of year to go to this zoo before the temperature gets too hot. Don't forget that they only use cash inside the park. There are so many albinos at this zoo.

Perfect size park. Everything is in close proximity. Animals were well-maintained. Park itself was clean and workers helpful and friendly.

The zoo was fantastic. I would recommend it to everyone with one warning...go the the restroom before you come. The restrooms were so filthy and outdated that I hardly believed my eyes. The animal areas were clean and well kept. Humans are not treated as well as animals here. I shutter to think of a small child trying to use... More

It's smaller and more rustic than many big city zoos. Some of the enclosures are very nice and offered pretty good stimuli; some made me sad and the parrot with the bee hive in his house was concerning; told a staff member who acknowlded they'd just become aware and that was good but she could have expressed more reassurance that...

We went to the Wildlife World Zoo/Aquarium last week. We were with my mom, my older sister, and our two kids. The good thing about this zoo is that you do feel close to the animals, and my kids, ages 8 and 10 really LOVE animals. I did not notice what others have complained about with the animals looking uncomfortable.... More

Our family has visited this park three times. Since it is a privately funded park, it will not have the extensive landscaping and paved pathways seen at a city zoo. But, our for families who live on the north side of Phoenix, it is an enriching zoo to visit. We always see something new every time we go, and the... More

Overall we enjoyed our visit to this park. It is an older park and could use some sprucing up, but it also has a lot to see. The Aquarium was more extensive than we expected and the animals in the exhibits were easily viewed due to the relatively small size of their enclosures. The cost for a family of four... More

If you choose to walk through the entire park you are in for a treat. They seem to be in a constant state of making it better with new animals and upgraded pens for them. The entire tour will take you approximately 3 hours and is worth the price of admission. Depending on whether you have any coupons that reduce... More
