The drive thru part reminded me of going to a drive thru animal park in Irvine, CA. The animals were out and active. Made some good memories for my family. Good, fun, clean place for a vacation day.

I have to admit to not being keen on going to Bearizona - I think the name put me off. However, I was happy to be proven wrong. Bearizona is overwhelmingly a peaceful, gentle and ecologically sound kind of place. It's only been open a few years, and all the staff are really passionate about the animals and what they... More

We visited Bearizona hoping to see happy, healthy animals in their natural habitat. We do not visit zoos because we don't support animals being held in cages. Bearizona was pretty much like a zoo. Many of the bears and other animals were kept in really small pens, and looked stressed. Bear cubs were separated from their mothers, wich I consider... More

Great place. Happened to it by accident. Safari drive thru. Able to drive in own car and see wild animals. Animals right by the side of the road, easy to photograph. After the drive-thru, parking available to see small-sized zoo. Chickens roaming premises. About $20/pp. Good deal.

A friend of mine visited here from Australia and I just had to see it. I'm glad we did. We came here especially to see Bearizona as part of a stop over to the Grand Canyon. You need your own car although I think they now have a bus that goes around. You first enter through the drive through park... More

We live about 1.5 hrs from Williams where Bearizona is located, and decided one day to head up on a whim with our 2 year old. Neither of us were stoked about the $20/person charge (especially since you're basically just in your car the whole time), but we decided to go for it anyway. We were pleasantly surprised - they...

Come visit when they first open (8 am) so the animals are active and not napping. Obey their rules, and bring a camera. I thought the entrance fee of $20 for me and $18 for the hubby was steep until I realized that it is for a good cause, and they're always making improvements. Well run, clean and they care.... More

Loved this cute little bear zoo al-a park on my drive to phoenix. The park is very well made and we saw animals in every section. The highlight was the foxes running around my car and the 15 bears we saw (some sleeping, some walking and some fighting). The little fort section after the driving are was beautifully made and...

My husband and I were reticent about this place. Their billboards seem a little Disneyesque and cheesy, but we wanted to check it out. We ended up spending 5 hours there! We're not easily amused, but it sure was fun to drive by at our own pace and get close up views of bear, wolves, bison and bighorns. Yes, we've... More

Awesome fun, we borrowed a car from bearizona and drove ourselves through the park such a cool place it has a nursery with baby bears too. They have a kiosk for refreshments and a couple of souvenir shops as well.
