Hop aboard a comfortable tram for a narrated tour of 435 acres in which American bison, Roosevelt elk, woodland caribou, bighorn sheep, moose and deer roam free. See bears, Canada lynx, bobcats, cougars, foxes, wolves and other native Northwest animals in natural exhibits along paved pathways under towering evergreens. Soar high in the sky on our Zip Wild set of zip line/challenge courses that test both mental and physical agility. All just an hour's drive from Seattle - but a world away. Say ahhhhhhh!

We go pretty much annually in the spring time or sometimes fall. First of all it is an amazing location on the way to Mt. Rainier. Second the facilities and staff are great. Things are well maintained. Finally, there are lots of animals in a natural, well except for the trams, setting. This is absolutely worth a day of your... More

Even in the winter, this place is amazing. The hour long tram ride through the free roaming area is the highlight of the park and you're virtually assured to see lots of interesting large animals on that ride. The keeper talks offer lots of chances to ask questions!

"Dedicated to conservation, education and recreation" states the mission of the wild life park. The park fulfills its promise on all counts. The tram tour is educational and leisurely enough for all to appreciate the wonder of the animals, the landscape, the smells and sounds. Consider a visit to this park as a day-long engagement in order to have time... More

this place was really neat. We got lucky, the animals were out everywhere we went. The moose were so neat, they were very curious creates which just added to my kids excitement. This is easily an all day adventure for young and old. Great way to spend the day together and take in the wild life and nature. The prices... More

What a fun thing to do! We highly enjoyed the herbivore tram experience, and saw a ton of animals. It was rainy, so we didn't see as many carnivores, but it was fun being out and about in such a gorgeous land. We went around Halloween, and there were plenty of activities to do in the park, which added to... More

Rainy day so all the animals were out and there were hardly any tourists. Saw everything but the grizzlies which were hibernating and the moose which were hiding. Grand sons favorite thing was the team ride... Heated cars!

We have been coming here for years, always an awesome time! The zipline is way fun and we always see tons of animals on the tram ride. Slug fest is fun and the Hoot and Howl is an excellent safe place for kids to show off their costumes.

What a great way to spend the day with Family. The grandchildren and the adults had an equally wonderful time. We saw every single animal that was at the park to see while on the tram ride. The tram ride is educational and you learn not only about the animals but, the types of trees that are native to Western... More
