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!

400 plus acres of northwest wildlife, mostly free to roam within the confines of the compound. The guides who drive the tour trams are knowledgeable and experienced in knowing where the animals are likely to be at any one time and in pointing them out to the non observant. My only slight criticism is the price, though it may be... More

We visited the Park with our grand daughter ages 7 and 5 having a perfect time! The Kid's Trek was the first stop as we entered the Park. What a time the girls had running up and down the paths, playing in the water, climbing on boulders, doing the slides, and rope climbs. So much to do and so much... More

I came here with my son, daughter in law, and 6 month old grand daughter in her stroller. It was a lovely park. not all of the animals were out and visible. We saw lots of animals on the tram ride.

The tram tour was nice and the driver was knowledgeable. The pictures give the impression that there are more animals than are actually there. I was disappointed. The playground for the kids was great but all in all, not worth the price of admission in late Mar.

We saw a bear, we saw a bear, we saw a bear! My 4 year old has been telling anyone who will listen that we saw a bear. Bears aside, we ate in the park and it was great! They had lots of options for small kids, teenagers, and adults.

The tram tour guides are knowledgeable and thoughtful - definitely worth a trip. The animals are all native species with for the most part generous areas to roam. Visibility for the visitor is good. The new play area for children is cute and popular. The only thing that needs improvement is their food.

In existence for some 40 years, the park has matured and now provides large herds of bison, elk, sheep, goats and lots of ducks, geese etc depending on the time of year. The park offers a one hour tram ride through the open habitats that provide a natural setting for the animals, plus other fenced habitats for the bears, cats... More

We have been here several times and every time we still love going! It is so much fun and always educational. The tram ride is never the same no matter how many times you go. Always new animals or animals that you didn't the last time. Everyone should visit at least once!

My 12 year old niece and I visited the park today. We had an Amazing time! We saw every animal except the bear. Watching her face light up with excitement of seeing these beautiful animals was wonderful. First we did the sites by foot, her camera was snapping at every site. We watched other kids and adults of all ages... More
