Amazing Zoo!
Apr 2021 • Family
Amazing zoo that is much larger that it seems from the outside. Animals are very well cared for and there is so much to see!
We have annual passes so we go frequently and this place never disappoints.

No, no, no - animal cruelty at its best
Apr 2021 • Family
Not only is it expensive with every single ride costing $6 (be it adult or child) on top of entrance fees, they also treat animals unequal and cruel. A falcon was leashed to a branch in the dark aquarium, a parrot had to sit there as well. Basins for fish and turtles where tiny! Other social birds were caged alone, without partner, with only a tiny bowl if water placed directly in the sun. One pigeon looked as if it was about to die. Some birds had to be alone in a tiny cage whilst others of the same kind roamed freely outside right in front them. Shelter from sun and heat was highly inadequate. Giraffes had no food reachable in their height so they started nibbling on the paint of the house. Upon complaint, the zoo director found ridiculous excuses and did not seem to care about the wellbeing of the animals living there at all. He seemed to care more about correcting names of species and passive aggressive comments. A shame! Please do not support animal cruelty at this zoo.

No staff monitoring 20x Over Capacity Small Humid Aquarium Caves with Hundreds of People Smashed elbow to elbow.
Mar 2021
The Aquariums were Very Disappointing. They don't have staff inside or at the aquarium doors monitoring traffic. These rooms / small humid dark cave tunnels had hundreds of people in each one, elbow to elbow and ramming each other. We were stuck in the middle and couldn't get out. This should have been considered 20x over capacity on a non Covid day. These rooms are warm and very very very humid with low ceilings and no draft what so ever. Everyone was smashed and ramming each other half didn't have masks. Someone needs to be watching the flow of traffic..... I regret that we went in at all. The Aquariums were Very Disappointing and Risky, Should Not have went in.

Both lots were full and there were cars parked in ditches, surrounding the houses across the street and lining both sides of the road all the way down to the highway!
That's way over capacity & to allow them all to PACK into these small humid dark Aquarium tunnels with zero air flow is not cool and reckless.

All that being said, this is an awesome zoo otherwise.

Zoo was Great!
Mar 2021
This zoo has more a natural setting than Phoenix Zoo. Made it seem like animals were in their habitat as it should be (for zoo life). The best parts are the Sky Ride and Tram Ride! The sky ride is great because you can see most animals that are in the central location and it cuts out on walking time, plus it’s a fun view looking down or across all animals. The tram was fun because you had close up views of some animals. Both rides were $6/per person....which was fine but website should’ve indicated this, so one can be prepared. Every zoo needs a sky ride!!
The Aquarium was interesting but very dark.
West entrance needs signage indicating two lines can form upon entering. People were confused and stayed in the Admissions line when in fact the gift shop entrance was accepting admission as well. This would’ve helped the long line! I had prepaid online and showed my tickets for them to scan but they said only the main entrance has a scanner so she wrote my name down. All entrances should be equipped with a scanner(s).
Great zoo and would recommend!

Won't support again

Small cages. Very little staff around. Bathrooms not maintained. Expensive, even with Groupon or a coupon. No COVID precautions in place/enforced.

Lots of animals!
Feb 2021 • Family
We bought tickets on Groupon so that saved a little money to get in. The carousel ride for 3.50 was a little steep but other that that we had a great time. We saw tons of animals! Feeding the giraffes was our favorite thing to do. We had a great lunch at Dillons and really enjoyed the day. We spent about 5 hours there but probably could've stayed even longer. A must do in Arizona with kids. Bring quarters to buy food to feed the animals.

Lots to do and see! MUCH better than the Phoenix Zoo!
Feb 2021
This attraction was much better than the Phoenix Zoo in my opinion. One thing that made it a lot better was that they take a common sense approach to the requirement of face coverings during this pandemic. They encourage their use everywhere in the park, but only require them when viewing an indoor exhibit like the aquariums.

This makes a lot of sense to me because when you’re outside in this HUGE park it is very easy to maintain social distancing and the forced use of face coverings is massive overkill.

NOTE: The Phoenix Zoo currently requires face coverings at all times in ALL of the zoo even when you’re outside and nowhere anyone else outside of those that you came with. This is completely unnecessary and very annoying. And let’s not forget that they have their staff and security walking around like the “face mask police” to enforce this policy! Give me a break!

Wildlife World, on the other hand encourages their use (except in indoor exhibits where it is required) but they don’t shove it down your throat. I really appreciate being treated like an adult and they did just that.

The park is very large and there is a lot to see and do. I would highly recommend it!

Sarati Tram rides closes before time 😡
Feb 2021 • Family
Hi

On Feb 13th, 2021. I planned a wildlife world zoo trip with my husband, 2 kids and my mother.

Everything was good until we reached to Safari Tram Ride at 4:30pm they said they r close, however we checked with other rides staff and they were also shocked to know why Tram Ride was closed early as all rides should b open at least until 5pm. My mother who is a heart, high BP and Sugar patient and due to her old age she was unable to walk much we decided to take Safari Tram Ride. We rushed there after Sea Lion show and to our shock lady at ticket counter said that she doesn’t know why they are closing at 4:30pm as she is new here and it’s windy so gates are not opening properly, well in that case they should cancel all rides not only Tram. We reached 2 mins prior to 4:30pm but she said it’s closed. My mom is a visitor in US and came here to meet us and to see places in and around Arizona. She is leaving US next week.2 years before we visited Zoo that time also they closed early but luckily that time we were able get ride.. this incident turned our mood off. Rest everything was good.. shows were amazing but at Sea Lion show they allow to sit at social distancing due to COVID but if crowd is more people stand outside or near by without any social distancing so I don’t see a point keeping social distancing only at seating area.. k

More Than Meets The Eye At This Zoo!
Dec 2020
This zoo was way bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside! There are a ton of animals, birds, and fish that you can get right up to and view! This zoo also rescues Macaws so there are lot placed throughout the property! Many of them will even talk to you! Lots to see and do at this park! There are also rides and a restaurant/bar on the property. Loved the baby animal nursery and all the feeding stations! It was great feeding the giraffes! If you are an animal lover you should check out this zoo if you are in the Phoenix area! Great for families too! They are also taking precautions for COVID so there are a ton of sanitizing stations throughout the property as well!
