Where are we going today?

The USA have some pretty incredible wildlife native to it's land, so why not spend the day getting to know the amazing species a bit better!

Yellowstone Bear World is the perfect accompaniment to any trip to Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton National Park, where the family can enjoy the drive-thru wildlife park, and experience some pretty amazing species!

It's not like a regular zoo either. At Yellowstone Bear World, you will be surrounded by free-roaming wildlife as you drive in your own personal vehicle through the park. Are you excited about what animals you might see?

How about the Rocky Mountain Elk, or those grand bison where you might feel you are back in the wild west?

You might spot some cheeky White-tail Deer, or those noisy Rocky Mountain Goats. Keep an eye out for the Mule Deer, and yes - Yellowstone Bear World have....can you guess? Bears! There are Grizzly Bears and the American Black Bear found there, and even some Gray Wolves.

It's not just the drive-thru safari that you can enjoy either! You can go behind the scenes and experience some bottle feeding, or kids can actually get hands on with animals in the petting zoo! Deer, pigs, ducks, geese and more are waiting to make friends!

Did we mention there were even amusement rides at the park? From the circus train, to a coaster, a bouncer and more, there is almost TOO much fun to be had at Yellowstone Bear World!

It's a WILD day out you might not be able to BEAR to leave!

    Attended on an Easter weekend, argh! Waiting for the hordes of people in cars to arrive, the hunt was delayed and children went away empty handed due to greed of the employees waiting for more "money" to enter the park. Pet the displayed bear cubs.
