The 2 for 1 Groupon made it well worth it. We went with our 2 year old daughter and we had a great time. Their gift shop has some food and picnic tables where you can eat. It does get windy out there, so bundle up. It was kind of annoying seeing all the tourists feeding the animals (they tell you not to), but that's not really AWC's fault. Overall a very good experience.

I thought the Behind-the-Scenes Tour was well planned out. I loved that me & my boyfriend were the only ones in our group, so our intern let us take a little longer at the enclosures to be sure we got the time we wanted. I loved how knowledgable and intriguing our intern was, he really provided us with a lot of information. And of course, seeing & learning more about the Wood Bison was very amazing. Feeding & playing with the baby moose, and being so close to brown bears were definitely my two favorite things. I really love the AWCC's mission & all it's doing to fulfill it.

It was the best experience I have ever had with animals. Their park is so much better on many different levels than the Alaska Zoo located in Anchorage; actually has a different concept. I absolutely LOVED it!! Their programs of survivability for the animals is the best in the Nation and in the world, I believe. Ex: Wood Bison
