“I loved Bearizona!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

However, it's all worth it when you get to the bears. They have several black bears and they were all having a good time. We got a lot of great pictures. After the driving portion, there's a small zoo. The little zoo was spectacular. They have four tiny bear cubs (a few months old) that were playing together. The bears were enjoying the freedom to climb the trees. The zoo was well shaded and we hit it on a day with perfect weather. We saw a birds-of-prey show that was excellent. A northern harrier hawk flew within inches of my wife and daughter's heads. This was part of the typical show, pretty spectacular. They also had a crow that accepted $1 bills and put them in a box, quirky and interesting to see. I would doubt that this is a full-day experience for anybody. It's a great half-day experience.

“Different way to see the Wildlife”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

I liked the concept of traveling through the park in your own car with a guided GPS/Tour box in your car. I was getting a little skeptical because the animals seemed all asleep or gathered around feeding tanks. We finally came across a few bears wandering which was cool. The best part was the walk around stop with gift shop, eatery, and petting zoo. I really liked seeing all the baby bear cubs playing and swimming. That was where I felt we got our money's worth. It could be we picked a bad time to see the animals more active, but it was still fun to take pictures up close of animals in their habitat.

“fun day”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

What an interesting attraction, first bit is like a drive through safari, some interesting animals,
then you got into the fort which had more animals in, th raptor show was very informative, seeing the bear cubs was very nice, one good thing is that you can drive the safari route as many times you like before they close

“awesome park, but go early!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

Took my five year old son to this park today and it was amazing! You literally get to drive through with wild life all around you! The wolf pack even surrounded the car! The park is open until 6, but the live shows and wild bus tours (which are included in park admission) are only during the earlier hours! Be prepared to pay, but it is worth the money if you can see all the shows. They also give you a GPS that tells you about the animals in each part of the park

“Go for the kids but be prepared to pay”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

After reading mixed reviews on here and talking to two hotel desk clerks in town who also had mixed reviews we decided to do it anyway. Glad we did but it is a little pricy. They've only been in business for 4 years and it shows. Still pretty small and a work in progress but I can imagine they will be excellent in another 4 years. We got there in time to board a open air bus that drove through the park with a driver who explained information about each animal and fed them out of the door. That was better than us even driving thru! We learned so much more than we ever would have on the drive through ourselves. After the bus ride we did the walk through portion and saw the baby bears. Do it for your kids! Mine loved it.
