It is so fun to see the bears wandering around. The bear cubs are absolutely entertaining. I could watch them play all day. Go early, before feeding so all the animals are active. Don't miss out on the huckleberry ice cream!!

We went to Bear World in Rexburg Idaho while on our family trip to visit Yellowstone. It was a wonderful outing where the children (ages5-8) could see so many of the wildlife- grizzlies, black bears, bison, elk, deer, and a beautiful bull moose! We thought it was very well priced and worth the money. The children loved the petting zoo... More

We were happy to see all the animals that are so difficult to find in Yellowstone National Park. Up close and personal too. Make sure you make reservations to feed the cubs in advance as the slots sell out quickly. Loved feeding the 6 cubs with baby bottles.

We have been two times. Last year I took my kids when my husband was on a trip and we loved it. The cost might seem high but you can drive around as many times as you want so we did about three or four times and the animals were right by our car. We took my husband to it... More

What a waste of time and money. At $17 per person, it's a big waste of money! It seriously only about a ten minute drive, so you don't waste much time. But, who wants to pay that much money for a ten minute drive? I've seen better bear exhibits in zoos. I suppose that if you truly have never ever... More

We heard about Bear World through some research on things to do on our way to Yellowstone. At $17 a pop per adult, the ride through is pricey. You do get some very up close experiences with the bears and other animals, but I probably would have preferred to save the money and try our luck at spying some wildlife... More

This was the best part of our whole trip! We drove through twice to see the bears being fed and got a lot of great pictures. The petting zoo was a ton of fun for our little ones since they could feed the animals and run around. The rides were perfect for our kids and the employees were very nice.... More

We were on our way home from Grand Teton so we stopped to see this place. It was 17 to get in which is ok. My wife and I wanted to feed a bear so we were prepared to pay 90 to do it, but when I asked if I could take pictures or video tape it they said no!... More

Bear World is amazing! Better than a zoo. Seeing the bears, deer, elk, buffalo, wolves, mountain goats, and other animals up close while driving through the park is incredible. I loved seeing the bears walk right by the car. You can drive through as many times as you want. If you don't go on the feeding excursion, try to go... More

My husband and I loved this attraction... driving through as many times as you wish to see the mountain goats, buffalo, deer, elk, moose and of course the famous bears~ I took part in the feeding of the baby bears. What a wonderful experience, they were adorable to be up close to feed and pet them. A bit pricey, however... More
