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

Yes, it's a tourist attraction and it is a bit pricey, but it was still a great experience. Drive through as many times as you like to see mountain goats, buffalo, deer & elk. Then roll up the windows to enter the bear section. There are quite a few so you'll have plenty of photo ops and and can always... More

My kids absolutely loved this place. The baby deer in the petting zoo would suck on their fingers and the older deer would lick them. They had so much fun and found it exciting to feed the bears. I will return again!

I've now been to Yellowstone twice in two years and loved it both times and want to return. I'm from Australia where the only chance to see a bear is in a zoo and to be able to bottle feed cubs was just amazing. They are so gorgeous and to be able to drive through and have bears right next... More

If you have children, it is a must see! The bears come right up to your car. June is the best month, the bear cubs are so fun to watch. You can pay extra to bottle feed a cub. The petting zoo has deer and even fawns that you can get close to!

Wow, saw every animal that was supposed to be in Yellowstone close up, (sans 2 hour traffic jam) my 8 year old daughter fed 6 bear cubs by hand, historical and biological info/experience, lunch on site, free kiddie rides. Home made fudge, souvenirs and more. If you got a family, you gotta go here. Period. Unbelievable.
