Where are we going today?

ROAR! Are you excited to visit the LARGEST collection of exotic animals in the entire state of Arizona? We certainly are, so we're off to Wildlife World Zoo!

Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium & Safari Park has over 600 exotic and endangered species to encounter, admire, and learn from! In fact, the park has over 6,000 individual animals that kids can spend the time with. That's a lot of animals - so you might want to put aside the entire day!

It's not just a self-guided tour that you can experience during your time at Wildlife World Zoo. They have FREE animal shows that are always great fun, as well as a great educational experience for the kids. There are feeding stations, and even chances to get up close to some of the animals too!

Let's not forget about the aquarium, where you can discover the wonders of the ocean world in a four building aquarium, teeming with hundreds of fish, invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles.

It also features the South Pacific Reef tunnel, which is the longest acrylic tunnel in the state!

From the waters to the plains of the Savannah, Wildlife World Zoo also has a very cool 15 acre Safari Park, where the magical creatures of Africa can be found! From the African lions, to cheetahs, to African birds, you can walk around the safari park and even take a tram ride through several of the exhibits.

For those kids who LOVE the scaly kind, Dragon World should be on your list too! Here there are pythons, bearded dragons, iguanas, the ONLY saltwater crocodile in Arizona, and a rare white alligator!

Snap!

    First time we have been there. I wish they had elephants and stuff. I am a big fish person and some of the tropical fish made me think about my early days as a kid... I had oscars, pacus, silver dollars, jack dempseys, etc. I was more impressed with the fish over the rest of the area. They did have a large collection of birds. It was worth it for our family. We will not go back for years as now we now have been there. Also, dont go there for the rides... thats not what you should be there for... the animals. Although I hate seeing animals...Read More

    I live here and love the zoo. I have seen it grow and grow. Too many people are very hard on it. They have 5 wonderful aquarium buildings. They have just opened a Safari Park and are still adding animals. This zoo has a lot to offer. Please don't expect a large zoo in a big city, because it is not. Some people were complaining of smell, it is zoo! Seriously, And other about sterilizing their hands.... they have hand washing stations by the petting zoo and the sting rays. Otherwise, use a bathroom people.... I also want to address the issue that...Read More

    The attractions were fun. I enjoyed the cable cars the most. The log flume ride is not worth $6.50, as it is short. The parrot feeding was fun. I also enjoyed the petting zoos and aquariums.

    Great zoo!! Yesterday was my first time there and I personally like it alot better than the Phoenix Zoo because you get to see the animals a lot closer but my only issue is its not cheap to get in. It's $35 plus tax so make sure you bring money with you because the rides aren't cheap either

Although I hate seeing animals kept in cages this is what our country has gave us. I love reading the history behind each animal.

Otherwise, use a bathroom people.... I also want to address the issue that people were complaining about the birds. Did you know that most of their big birds are rescues? Bet not. So when you see all of the birds that they take in because the owners surrender them, people should be glad they do. I love this zoo. We have yearly passes. So to read all of the negative complainers on here makes me sad. This is a great place. Watch for coupons because it is pricey, but it is a smaller zoo. You can get a lot closer to the animals here then any big city zoo. Also, if you do not want to pay for food or drinks, they allow you to carry your own. This zoo is a local favorite.

I have my likes and dislikes. I LOVE that you can interact with the giraffes; being that they are my favorite animal. I had my 21st birthday here and ate at Dillon's. I must say, getting into the zoo was quite expensive. It's about $35 (including tax) for one person. Spent $200 for myself and close family members to get in. The rides, aren't cheap at all. The log flume is $5 per person. Maybe $2.50 would be a better price. Considering we spent 200 getting in. Would I suggest this zoo to friends and family? Yes. But i will warn them about their prices.
