I cannot begin to say enough good things about this fantastic place. This is by far and away the best zoo experience because you are able to get so close to view the animals. Four of us went on a Saturday in December. We arrived...More
I'm not really a zoo fan but this is a pretty decent place to take kids. Petting zoo, aquarium, otters were the favorite areas for our kids. Very pricey. Best way to cut costs is to look for 2 for 1 admissions coupon underside of...More
This zoo and aquarium was the largest one I have ever been to. The staff was friendly and listened when I had a concern about a squrill monkey. I was impressed how clean the area was. All the buildings were clean as well including the...More
We have been taking our children, grandchildren, visitors and and visitor's children here for many years, but after this year's visit, I don't think I will return. Found the animals sparsely populated and most of them way in the back of their pens, far from...More
Visiting from Canada decided to take my nieces and nephew who live in Arizona for an adventure. The park is very large so plan for a day of adventures. We really enjoyed our day the only thing I would like to see is the rides...More
Hefty admission fees. There are too many amusement park rides and all are extra costs. Hope you can keep your children off the rides. If unable, it is a very expensive day. The Phoenix is more enjoyable. Too many animals are caged. Oh, I need...More
We headed to this zoo on our fall break (two families w/kids ages 7-12). Our hotel was in Scottsdale so we had a long drive and didn’t arrive as early as we hoped... There are a TON of animals to see (since and rides and...More
I went for the bird exhibit and keep going back to feed of the giraffes and to watch the monkeys. A little pricey, but it can be a full day's experience, plus you get to see a nice aquarium. We bring all of our out-...More
They do have wheelchairs available, however they do not look like they are in the best shape. All the paths are crushed gravel and that also makes if very difficult to push around a wheelchair for any length of time. If you... More

Yes, they have large cats. The display for the panther (I think it was a panther) is awesome. You can walk under it. Kinda different knowing it’s looking down on you as you walk under. Also that had tiger cubs there. A baby... More

Wildlife Park vs. Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium (1 Replies)
We'll be visiting my son and his family for a week over Christmas. Both of the above attractions have Groupons and I'm trying to decide which one to purchase that both kids and adults would enjoy the most. My granddaughters are age 2 and 3 and they've already been to the Phoenix Zoo multiple times. We'll be driving from Mesa and I realize that Wildlife Park is over 90 min. away but thought if we did that one we could combine it with Montezuma Castle and/or Sedona. Thanks for your help.

The Wildlife Park is very large and we could not do it in a day and do justice to everything. Obviously the younger girls may not be interested in everything. You need to allow time for rest periods. From Wildlife Zoo to Montezuma's Castle is an hour and a half and then another half hour to Sedona. I would never attempt to do the zoo and then head there. Why not plan another day trip just there? Sedona is beautiful and there will be decorated trees in Talaquepaque and the girls will...More
Phoenix Zoo or Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium. (2 Replies)
Family of 4, 11 and 13 yr old teens, would like to visit one of the zoos. Which one would you recommend and why. Phoenix Zoo or Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium. How is Cracker Jax Fun Park in Scottsdale? Is there a better alternative to go to?

The Phoenix Zoo is superior to WWZ in many ways; it's a world class zoo with extremely well maintained exhibits, and a wide variety of exotic animals. That said, it doesn't have an aquarium, if that is of interest to your kids. They do have various activities during the year; check their website for a schedule. WWZ is also kind of a more intimate zoo, in that you can get up close and personal with some of the animals; they have one enclosure where you can actually walk through, and another...More
Best places to find discounted attraction passes (5 Replies)
My husband and I will be staying in Mesa from Dec. 23-30. We'll be spending most of our time with my son, his wife and 2 girls, age 2 and 3. I'm looking for cost-saving tips/links to get discounts on kid-friendly attractions, etc. There's currently a Groupon for 28% off at the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium but the admission is still fairly pricey, especially knowing all the money you'll be spending for extras and I'm wondering if there's cheaper coupons out there. When I looked today I...More
