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

This was the highlight of my road trip this summer. It is around $45 to bottle feed and pet baby bear cubs (in addition to the entrance fee), but it was great. They had 6 cubs when I visited and was able to bottle feed and pet them all. They even take your picture and you get it once you... More

I was not completely sold on a visit, but did it anyway. I'm so glad we did! The day we drove through the park was cloudy with some rain/sprinkles and the animals were all active. We got to see many animals we'd hoped to see in the wild. The bears were amazing. I wish we'd done a 'feed the bears'... More

We had a great time at Yellowstone Bear World. We were lucky, in that we arrived a half hour before the 11am feeding time. The bear cubs (7 months old) were full of energy, playing, and a lot of fun to watch. This was important because after feeding by noon they were sleeping for a while. The petting zoo was... More

Lots of bears on the second loop. Very large bison were fun to see also. This is a small attraction that is worth the price of admissin.
