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!
Howl-O-Ween Express: Hop on the windowless bus that takes visitors through the drive-through animal exhibits.
