Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium, Litchfield Park

3.7
#4 of 8 in Zoos & Aquariums in Arizona
In addition to a large variety of South American and African species, Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium houses sealife from all over the world. Choose between an old-fashioned train that will take you through the safari park or a self-guided walking tour. If you'd like a view from above, take a Skyride, similar to a ski lift, for a 15-minute trip over the habitats. The 38 ha (95 acre) grounds include a petting zoo, reptile collection, and open space where animals graze. Don't miss a stop at the animal nursery and the chance to feed the birds. Stroller and wheelchair rentals are available, as well as two restaurants.

  • We have visited many zoos and this, by far, is one of the best! It is unique in that you get to visit both a zoo and aquarium at the same location. Shows were good and we saw all the animals! We also ...  more »

  • The zoo and aquarium are both 5 stars, the ride prices earn 1 star. Considering it's privately owned, this zoo is amazing. The aquarium is massive, with lots of different zones, hosting an enormous variety of sea creatures. The penguin feeding is always fun. I love that the owner themed all of the rooms and tanks to add to the ambiance. The rides are fun, but outrageously priced. I wish they sold arm bands for daily enjoyment of the rides. As a family of 6, spending upwards of $6 pet ride adds up quickly. I'll give this zoo 5 stars, hands down if the owner addresses his rides and lowers the prices.
  • We always enjoy going to a Wildlife World Zoo. There are so many animals to look at I believe there's close to 6000 plus there's the aquarium where you can touch the Stingrays feed giraffes. They have little rides for kids they have a train to take tours on. There's so much to do that you definitely need to plan for the entire day. The really cool thing about it is how close you can get to the animals. They're not locked behind glass and bars. Plus they have a baby nursery where you can go and look at new babies.
  • $40 for adults and $20 for kids, I'd expect a nice, clean zoo. There was trash everywhere. The staff can't be bothered to smile. Animals are scattered throughout the park - the organization of the displays doesn't make any sense. And apparently the whole park is cash only. Would have been nice to be told at the entrance that my card is worthless here. Not that $40 a head can't afford a few card readers anyway. I'm extremely upset and disappointed with the quality of this over priced zoo.
  • It was Huge! It was nice cause you walked around outside for awhile and the little building with animals and air conditioning. So you got to cool down. We didn't get to see the sea lion show or feed them but that's for next time. Do plan to be there for At least 4 hours or more so bring lots of water and snacks
  • This place has really expanded since I was there last. There are more animals. Also a number of rides and you pay for each so if money is an issue check this all out. If you go during the summer, some of the rides will probably be closed, but there is a lot of shade and no crowds. I like it better than Phoenix Zoo.
