We had a group of 12 go here. There are a lot of animals, a petting zoo, a little barrel train ride, and around the whole park. You can get pictures taken with animals or snakes. We had a picture with a baby lemur. There are also 2 rescued bears. We ate pizza cooked at the Bears Den Restaurant which... More

We took two kindergarten age kids to this awesome place. They were very friendly and engaging. The many different species of animals was impressive they are all living amongst each other right in our back yards! The animals were well taken care of as far as we could tell... They even had favorite employees. There was a tram ride that... More

This was my first time visiting and I have to say this is an awesome place to take your kids. You get to pet the horses, donkies, zebras, cammels, you can get up close with the kangeroos, zoth, cobras, ponies, bears, etc. We loved this place. Will definitely visit this place in the future.

Sharkarosa is a great place for the younger kids. They can enjoy themselves with a good bit of freedom. Our three year old loves the place and can occupy herself for a couple of hours. We've been back several times and continues to captivate our grandchildren.

We came here after going to Fossil Rim and were disappointed. While it is a nice place and there are many more "close contact" animals here - you ride a tram out to three fields and back again which takes about 20 minutes. Horses, Zebras, Giraffes. There is a covered place to eat, and stations to wash hands. Bathrooms are... More

The tour ride was the highlight. You can touch the horses, camels and few others. Interesting mixed breeds, we saw donkey/zebra and hourse/zebra, beautiful animals. Our instructor was awesome, he educated us along with answering all of our questions. Our 19 mos old enjoyed this so much and we did too! Would love to visit again. One thing to keep... More

I had actually never heard of this place until I found a groupon for it. My sister and her family were coming to visit during Memorial Day weekend so I bought a groupon for us to go. We were glad we did. The safari tram was the best part. You take a bus basically that is open on the sides... More

My family and I tried to go during the week in the summer! Guess what it is CLOSED!!! You can only go on the weekend. We had driven with my parents from NM and our kids because it is SUMMER!! Best time to be open. They only allow for daycare kids to see the animals during the week. HUGE Disappointment!!

My family and I had a great time at Sharkarosa. It is a little smaller than I expected, but we have never been able to get that up close and personal with the animals. My 7 year old daughter had a blast. The pizza restaurant was great! And the bear sitting at the picnic table was such a site to... More

We got a Groupon to come here for my 34th birthday. We were looking for something fun we could do with our two year olds, and since we all love animals we decided to give this a shot. What a great experience! They have lemurs, camels, monkeys,snakes, deer, kangaroos, sloths, goats, pigs, a capybara, bears, zebras, and even a moose,which... More
