Bearizona greets critter-happy carpools with a two-hour interactive wildlife experience featuring black bears, arctic wolves, and other conservation success stories from the natural world. Animals at the park roam about in large enclosures evocative of their native habitats while vehicles wind their way along the three-mile observation trail, pausing every so often for photo opportunities or attempts to communicate by wolf-whistle. Park guests may also stumble across a big-horn sheep in search of grassy treats, though signposts near the wolf exhibits urge viewers to beware of well-costumed counterfeits. After making their way through the park’s drive-through section, visitors can stretch their legs on a stroll through the forested Fort Bearizona enclosure, which houses smaller animals and bewildered Civil War re-enactors.
Just south of the gateway to the Grand Canyon stands Bearizona, a drive-thru wildlife exhibit that regales creature-seeking carpools with bison, mountain goats, and other animals from the comfort of their own automobile. The 3-mile drive takes guests through sprawling enclosures, where they can peer in on packs of cuddly arctic wolves or ask black bears for directions to the nearest stocked cooler. After traversing the park’s drive-thru section, visitors can stroll through the forested Fort Bearizona enclosure, which houses exhibits of smaller animals and Bearizona Barnyard, an interactive petting zoo.
