PREPARE TO BE AWED! Hop aboard a comfortable tram for a narrated tour of 435 acres in which American bison, Roosevelt elk, woodland caribou, bighorn sheep, moose and deer roam free. See bears, Canada lynx, bobcats, cougars, foxes, wolves and other native Northwest animals in natural exhibits along paved pathways under towering evergreens. Soar high in the sky on our Zip Wild set of zip line/challenge courses that test both mental and physical agility. All just an hour's drive from Seattle - but a world away. Say ahhhhhhh!

I was extremely disappointed. It cost us almost $80 for three adults and a child to enter the park. There was a fair amount of walking with barely any animals to view. Several exhibits were closed, the few animals that were available to view were...More

Disappointed with the visit. Some animal exhibits were closed. The other animals were hidden in their « cage ». The tour guy was annoying because we don’t come here to get excited over some ducks or Canada gooses that we can see anywhere around Seattle lol. It...More

I wish they would update their website to say how many animals are “off exhibit”. I was a little disappointed in how many animals were no longer there for various reasons. It was clean and fairly well maintained. Not many employees around to answer questions,...More

Had a good time but a handful of exhibits were closed. Unfortunately due to snowy conditions the tram tour was also cut in about half. Still a fun time but might be better to visit during the Spring, Summer and Autumn seasons.

Amazing place! Go on a clear day though, it’s hard to see anything through the train windows when they fog up. The animals were magnificent though!

Hi Ryan, the foxes are indeed shy. The best advice I have is to look for them near the back of the exhibit when you first approach - they do camouflage very well - and then to stand as quietly as possible. After a few... More
