This place was outstanding we spent the whole day there and still did not get all of it done. You can bring your own lunch plenty of picnic tables. We ate our lunch enjoying the sea loin show. So many birds and monkeys. I never...More
This is not your run-of-the-mill zoo. You can actually see animals moving around in their habitat. A lot of walking involved, but that’s also a good thing as we like to go here to get out of the house and actually move around ourselves.
This place was great and HUGE,go early stay all day! It is a zoo,aquarium & safari park there is a restaurant by the main entrance and snack bars in many different locations throughout the park. We went in February so it wasn’t real hot and...More
I was super impressed with this zoo and aquarium! Spent a whole day there and had so much fun! They had a wonderful BBQ restaurant called Dillons! Sat on patio with the flamingos! Great food, great atmosphere! Feeding the giraffes was my favorite thing! The...More
This zoo was a fun experience. That being said, it was an expensive outing. With a family of 5 adults and one child it was almost $200 just to walk in the door.
There was a lot of things to see so plan it to...More
We took our grand daughters, ages 6,7 & 8 here for the day and it was a fantastic place to visit! We actually liked it better than the Phoenix zoo and Odysea as the animals are so close and there is so much more to...More
Some interesting animals here. A very low key comfortable zoo, and of course the weather can't be beat! There are even a couple of rides to excite the kiddoes a bit more. Plan to spend two to three hours enjoying the wide open space.
Found the add in a local free mag - was a $5/person off the entrance. Hands down the best wildlife park we’ve ever been too for wildlife! Tigers, rhinos, monkeys, reptiles, birds (big birds) - just about everything except big mammals.
A little pricey ($40/adult)...More
We were here on a Saturday in December (it was a cold day!). I have to start this review by saying - this attraction clarifies throughout your visit that they are a rescue/restoration facility for animals and they are entirely privately owned and funded. They...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 Reply)
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
