This was my second visit here and seeing the wild life was great. However, I was less than impressed that we got to the park and paid to get in at 4:59pm. The person taking our money did not mention that they close at 5:00pm and that we would only get to drive though one time. (Usually, you can drive... More

We did not get to see any bears while visiting Yellowstone National Park so decided to bring the kids here. Wasn't sure what to expect but we had so much fun and stayed longer than planned. There were lots of bears and not much of other animals. That was fine because that was all we wanted to see. A bear... More

When I was young my parents would take us camping and we'd often see bears. It's hard to spot one in the wild these days so I took my kid to see them at Yellowstone Bear Word. It's nice to have that experience and get very up close to the bears, deer, goats and chickens. The curator tour is fun... More

We and our two grandsons, ages eleven and twelve, thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Bear World. I strongly recommend the "curator's tour." It will add $25 for a family of up to seven people, but you end up with a guided tour and the opportunity to stop and feed the bears. Our grandsons were thrilled to be perched safely above... More

We went with family and had a 6 year old boy and two 2 year olds who had a great time. The petting zoo is great! There are deer, goats, chickens and ducks that are roaming around for you to pet and them to lick you! There are five small rides and unlike the carnival, no waiting in long lines!... More

Seeing the animals in their habitat was awesome...but then watching the cubs waiting to be fed was fabulous. Seeing the animals in the petting zoo and how gentle they were and comfortable they seemd to be when being picked up by caring children. Try the Huckelberry Fudge from the Gift Shop...to DIE for!

For our family of 6 adults and 4 children ages 14 -2 it was so much fun. We interacted with not only bears but other animals. The petting zoo is free and was a blast. The bears litterally will walk or stop right next to your car. The cost was a bit on the expensive side. 16 per person or... More

My husband and I - in our 60's and 70's - really enjoyed this stop. The environment is for the animals is natural, so it's much better than going to a zoo. One bear decided that he needed to taste my car, and licked bugs off the front grill, then decided to nibble the door handle to see if it... More

This was a great value for the kids. We drove thru Yellowstone for several days and did see a couple of bears but not close up. The staff was very friendly and you could drive thru as many times as you wanted. The baby bear were our favorite and if you paid extra you could bottle feed them

We drove around twice! (There is no limit to the number of times you can do this). In several places, there is a pull-out space on the drive so you can let other cars go by. This was very helpful to see the bison and for several photo shots. It was early afternoon, so many of the bears were asleep.... More
