  • We visited the Park with our grand daughter ages 7 and 5 having a perfect time! The Kid's Trek was the first stop as we entered the Park. What a time the girls had running up and down the paths, playi...  more »
  • I came here with my son, daughter in law, and 6 month old grand daughter in her stroller. It was a lovely park. not all of the animals were out and visible. We saw lots of animals on the tram ride.  more »
  • The tram tour was nice and the driver was knowledgeable. The pictures give the impression that there are more animals than are actually there. I was disappointed. The playground for the kids was great...  more »
  • The tram was cool. We got to see bison, elk, moose, deer, mountain goats, and bighorn sheep up close. The zoo part was okay. The grizzly was hiding and most of the rest of the animals were hard to see. The river otters are very playful. Awesome playground, but kind of dangerous for little children.
  • Animals! The tram! The outdoors! It barely seems like a zoo and has lots of room to wander and explore in the fall. I imagine during the summer it can be quite busy but as a local we tend to visit offseason.
  • I loved this place and learned quite a bit. The only problem is that the bathrooms are terribly inadequate. There was a long line for the women's bathroom the entire day that I was there. Women, be sure to go before you get there and restrict fluids. Expect little kids to per themselves if they are waiting in line with mom.
  • Love this place. Very well set up and it's more calming than your typical zoo's. It's always busy but it never feels busy like zoo's usually do. Tons of animals out and within reach most the time.
  • Great variety of activities! You can walk around to exhibits and read the placards. You can take a tram ride which is narrated by a naturalist to observe native free-roaming animals. Little kids and big kids enjoy the new "kids' trek" area. The trails are great too. We did not try the ropes course or zip line, but we saw people having fun.
