We visited on a very hot day, brought here by locals who had last visited the attraction about 20 years ago. We had no knowledge of this place, and thus went in with open minds and no pre-conceptions. We are from the east coast and had no real knowledge of local habitat, flora and fauna. The fact that were came... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. We rode a comfortable air-conditioned bus through the park seeing numerous animals. Caribous come right up to the bus and I touched antlers through the window. There were beautiful views of the mountains. We saw a black bear and caught a glimpse of a moose. They also had a reasonably priced gift shop.

What I like-the variety of NW animals, motorized tour-being able to get more behind the scene look at animal habitat, friendly staff. What I didn't like-would like to see some of the animals have larger enclosures and better signage on the walking path

We took the tram tour first, which was very interesting. We saw moose, elk, bison with calves, caribou, and mountain sheep with lambs. On the walking tour, we saw bear (pretty close, too), river otter, and bobcat. Because of the time of day, many of the critters were in their dens. I recommend going early and taking the walking tour... More

We went to Northwest Trek on a Groupon with the sole purpose of seeing a moose. It's difficult to spot a moose in the wild but with all the photos of them advertising the park, surely we'd see one. We didn't. We took the tram to the natural habitat where they live, but no moose. They apparently hide in the... More

We are coming with baby and girl 6 years old and the place is so great. A lot of place to sit down and walk around and seeing the animal. Riding the bus is great stuff.

We took our grandchildren; both under 4, after finding a Groupon for this park. It was a nice find for us. We rode the tram, advertised as a one hour ride, but lasted about 50 minutes. We were able to see many animals up close including bison which approached as the tram stopped. The park is laid out very well... More

First thing I'll say is, if you're planning a trip with your kids.. Be respectful of those who want to stay quiet. Might be the most annoying thing about going to a zoo is loud children who scare all the animals away. Anyway! This is a pretty amazing zoo, lots to look at, lots of walking, and animals have lots...

This is an amazing place for kids, teens and adults! Went on a family trip here for the first time and was very impressed. Animals in their natural (or very close to) environment and very close to you. The animals were so close you could have seen their breath next to the vehicle. This was my cameras dream location, so... More

From 80 to age 6, everyone had a wonderful time. Good exhibits, a great tram ride and decent family food. Zip line and obstacle courses fro aged 6 and up. Our 6 year old had the best time of his life here!
