We were travelling with our daughter, husband and 2 grandkids ages 3 and 5. We had loads of fun. The drive thru area didn't disappoint because we did see many animals and often right next to the car. Petting zoo was fun for the kids. Unlimited carnival rides for the kids. Be aware these rides are just for small kids,... More

We didn't see any bears in Yellowstone (kind of a relief) but we saw plenty here. This was a nice way to get up close with lots of wildlife. We spent several hours here with 5 kids ranging from 5-15 and two parents ranging in age from 38-41. First you drive through the wildlife exhibit. It cost us $75+tax for... More

To all the people that give this place a low rating because they don't agree with bears being in a commercial wildlife park, well, you shouldn't have gone. You definitely shouldn't submit a review of a place you're determined to not like. It was wonderful! There is tons of space for the animals to frolic. You could watch them swim,... More

This is a great place. You can drive thru a bear cage, and see several bears. Then stop and visit the nursery where you will see baby bears. The petting zoo, and the carnival rides are also included in the entry price. If you have time, and want to ride the truck thru to feed the bears (every hour or... More

Yellowstone Bear World offers safari in your own vehicle among some wild life animals. The star of the attraction is of course the bears. Our family enjoyed the visit to this wild life park a lot. The petting zoo, which is part of the package, is also enjoyable especially its star...the pig. Smaller kids would enjoy the free amusement park... More

This was a great place to stop! Visitors are allowed to drive through as many times as they want. It was different each time we went. Also, there are cute rides for the kids that were included in the admission fee. The petting zoo was great too. Take quarters to feed the animals in the petting zoo.

We had a great time at the park. It was a little sad seizing the Bears and animals, but they seemed well cared for. Free amusement rides for kids and awesome petting zoos Definitely recommended

We drove through the park 3 times - we loved it. My 7 year old loved the amusement rides. I loved seeing the animals. It was truly an experience one should not miss. Load up the car on your way to Yellowstone or on your way home. Great times for all ages.
