Great place and generally worth the admission fee (more on that in a minute) Before you enter, if you're on vacation with the family Dog, the dog is not allowed in - BUT they do have a nice kennel area in which you can leave your pet as you drive through. Trying to take the dog through is NOT a... More

This was a great place to take our kids for a morning. It was a neat drive through and a really fun petting zoo. There are a few fair-type kiddie rides, I was even able to take some childish joy in watching the wrestling and playing bear cubs. My only gripe is the price is sooo much more then it's... More

It's pricey. For a family of six it is almost $80 but still worth every penny because the kids still love it.

On our way to Yellowstone park and my mom wanted to see bears. We had stopped at the Castle Hot Springs and the owner had told us about Bear world. You drive through and lo and behold there were bears and wolfs running around together, not to mention the buffalo, elk, deer, moose and peacocks. They had baby bears that... More

Somewhat cheezy place to see animals that might live in Yellowstone national park. This is basically a drive through zoo. With that being said, children will enjoy seeing the bears and occasionally they may be doing something interesting, like climbing a tree. Or, they may just all be sleeping. Expensive, but you might like it.

I have 4 children ages 22 months to 9 year old. This is a good value for a vacationing family. With a few exceptions, everything was included in the entrance fee. The petting zoo, kids rides, gift shop and bear park are ideal for children.

My hubby had a business trip in Idaho Falls, and while he was working, I was faced with hours of alone time and no clue what to do. Someone at our hotel mentioned Yellowstone Bear World, and I decided to try it. What a fantastic experience! I must admit, when I pulled up to the window to pay, and the... More

Feeding the baby cubs is a definite must for any age. The day we were there small children to adults participated. I do recommend call ahead for reservations. They only have three feeding times a day and they fill up quickly. The price was $45.00 per person but worth the price to be up close, feeding and petting the bears.... More

I wasn't expecting as much out of this attraction and was pleasantly surprised. We were in the area and had my little nieces for the day. They take AAA for a discount, and about $50 got 3 "adults", two "kids" and a free toddler in. You can drive around the animal enclosures as many times as you want and the... More

Lots of bears to see, as well as cubs. They also have moose and elk to see. The other great thing about this place was the petting zoo. Lots to see and touch! They also have a few rides that my youngest boys really enjoyed. And all of this is included in the price of the entrance. To see the... More
