Bearizona Park Win a Family Car Pass {A Giveaway}

We went to Bearizona and loved every minute of our visit. Baby bears - do I need to say more. They were so naughty and cute that I could just leave it at that but Bearizona has so much more to offer. 

This Drive-thru Wildlife Adventure allows you to take your entire family in your car to drive through the habitats of bears, wolves, big horn sheep, bison, and more!
Certain animals require that you keep your windows up and your doors locked while in their habitat....not sure how they will open the doors but better dafe than sorry ;)

We opted to drive-thru in our own vehicle and go back on the bus ride to hear commentary from the staff and see the animals during feeding time. There are also walk-thru exhibits and even a raptor show! All of which is included with admission and the giveaway below for a carload pass.

More bison during the drive-thru exhibit.

Beautiful bobcat snoozing during the walk-thru portion of the park.

That is a porcupine in a tree!

Fall is a great time to visit with cooler temperatures all the animals will be out and about plus Bearizona has the Howly Growly Owly Festival!

Bearizona is hosting Howly Growly Owly Festival weekends in October. Visitors are encouraged to dress up in costume and kids that do will get a “beary” special treat! 
Festivities Include:
Howl-O-Ween Express: Hop on the windowless bus that takes visitors through the drive-through animal exhibits. This is about as close as you are going to get to our animals, so you don't want to miss out. Patrons can howl with the wolves in the Alaskan Tundra & Arctic Wolf enclosure and watch the bison interact with a special Howl-O-Ween enrichment treat.  Bus rides depart from the Fort Bearizona parking lot at 12:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. & 4:00 p.m. every Friday and 10:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. & 4:00 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday in October. 
Growly Bear Cave: Check out our array of jack-o-lanterns that adorn the inside of the Kindergarten Bear Cave.
Scarizona at Bearizona Haunted House: Those who dare can walk through our super scary Haunted House (PG-13 Rated) open Friday 12:00p.m.-5:00p.m. Saturday ave Sunday 10:00a.m-5:00p.m.
Raptor Show: Guests should plan to catch an Owly Raptor Show at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. or 3:00 p.m., after visiting Fort Bearizona’s baby and smaller animals.
Photo Ops: Several areas of the park are decorated in different themes so visitors can take photos with their families.
Scavenger Hunts: Both adults and children can get in on this fun activity.  Check in at the front of Fort Bearizona Walk Through with the attendant and get your scavenger hunt form. After you complete the scavenger hunt make sure to turn in your card at the gift shop for a prize.
Bearizona’s mission is to promote conservation through memorable and educational encounters with North American wildlife in a natural environment.
