Good Time at the Zoo

We had a good time despite the 110° heat. Apparently this is the slowest time of the year according to one of the ride operators due to the heat. It really was like we had the... read more

We had a good time despite the 110° heat. Apparently this is the slowest time of the year according to one of the ride operators due to the heat. It really was like we had the place to ourselves. There are so many animals to see throughout this huge zoo. I didn't expect the variety or the size. There are... More

This is a wonderful zoo with a wide variety of animals. I took my 2 Grandchildren in July, one of the hottest months in Arizona, which had it's pros and cons. The pro is that there are few guests roaming the zoo, the con, of course is that it's HOT out there. We purchased snow cones and drank lots of... More

What was interesting about this park was that you could feed the giraffes with your hands. It's not something that you have a chance to do at other places. They have a ton of birds. I didn't see any elephants (the main reason I wanted to go) so I was a bit sad about that. I wasn't so impressed with... More

Great location for grandmas taking grandchildren. Everyone can see and I didn't have to keep lifting kids. Very up close and personal! we all had a great time. Look for coupons on Hickman egg cartons if you are planning to go. Takes the sting out of admission.

This zoo was in some ways more enjoyable to us than the Phoenix Zoo! It was more impressive than I expected. We went for our first visit in April 2016. The day happened to be 95 degrees and hot! But the exhibits are amazing, and I loved the variety of animals we saw. I especially enjoyed seeing kangaroos hopping around... More

I've been to this zoo twice--one in the spring and once in July. It is definitely a morning activity in the summer. Very little shade in the 110 degree heat! We were able to cool off a bit in the few indoor buildings, as well as with the icees they sell, though. So many cool animals! You can take a... More

So this one is a hard review to write, because as far as zoo's go, this was one of my favorites. There were many distractions as well.... Pro's: Incredible selection of animals. Some that I have not seen at any other zoo. White peacocks walking around, lion cubs playing right next to the path, baby ducks galore, and birds and... More

Rides are a nice way to see the park when the temperature is hot. There were no lines and there was a family on each of the rides with us. There's a train and Sky chair lift. We took breaks for drinks in the cafes and lunch and ended up staying in the park till 2 pm. The kids loved... More

Wildlife World Zoo is on the very edge of the west side of the Phoenix metro area. It is much larger than I expected. The day we were there was warm for April. I struggled with the heat and there was not much shade. There were benches for sitting, but almost none were in the shade. I recommend going in... More

I bought a Living Social deal for the safari park and it was well worth the minimal cost! The line was super long to get in but since we pre-purchased our tickets we went to the front of the line. There were so many exhibits, rare animals, birds we've never seen, and peacocks on the loose. We even spotted a... More
