Weekday morning visit and the place was hopping. Lots of visitors all ages. We walked at a leisurely pace and enjoyed the many different birds and reptiles as well as water species. Took the train ride and had a great tour narrated by a nice young man who had interesting facts to share. Also rode the sky tide and highly... More

Ya know how you go to a zoo and all of the animals are sleeping or are hidden WAY in the back of the enclosure? Well this isn't one of those places. This is wide open, get to see and enjoy the animals kind of place. This is such a great place to take the family. Plan on spending the... More

Some friends from Phoenix took us to the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium today. We originally planned to stay 3 or 4 hours. Ended staying 6 1/2 hours. Had great weather with skies sunny and temps in the mid 70's in the afternoon. Map provided at the entrance made it very easy to get around. Displays are well thought out.... More

This zoo is just the right size--not too big, not too small. Didn't wear the kiddos out trying to see it all. Love the little train that goes around part of the premises. Like other reviewers, I appreciate the fact that you can see the animals up close, closer than in other places. We enjoyed feeding the giraffes. A very... More

The zoo is huge and impossible to see it all in one day. They keep adding on to it and we were unable to see the new safari park. We enjoy feeding the lory parrots and the giraffe up close. The baby animal exHibit is unique and always different animals there. All the animals can be seen closer than in... More

I would only go here if you happen to be staying closeby (we were in Goodyear for a week) and you can find coupons. We used Groupon so it was not that expensive. The 5 year old had the best time. We had 4 kids ages 2-5. We liked the kangaroo area the best. You can walk right up to... More

70 bucks for 2 people to walk around. Mostly birds to look at. Flume ride and the train were not in operation during our visit. My girl did enjoy feeding the giraffes however and still talks about how fun that was. I think 20 dollars for admission is more reasonable

Families can make an all day event going to this zoo and aquarium. There are lots of active exhibits including various feeding and shows. The park encompasses 15 acres in far West Phoenix. From Scottsdale it takes about an hour to reach, but well worth the trip. You can buy tickets in advance and thy'll be mailed to you, if... More

We usually get to the zoo 1-2 times a year but get there at all in 2014. What a difference a year makes! The new safari and sea lion show both opened in 2014. The safari Is well done and we enjoyed the tram ride-even though its a bit on the expensive side. Not sure if we will pay the... More

Wow has this place grown! I usually come here with my family every couple of years. I like it much better than the Phoenix Zoo simply because there is less walking and more to see and do. Take the skyride, enjoy the water ride in summer through the aquarium and feed the stingrays. Great place to bring the family any... More
