Ask us your own question.

Q. When will the park be completed?

A. Bearizona completed Phase I in 2010. Phase I is the 3 mile drive through portion of the park exhibiting large animals. Phase II, which includes Fort Bearizona walk through area, educational center and neonatal viewing area is open but currently under construction. This area will be completed during 2015, however like all good zoological facilities we will be consistently updating, improving and adding new exhibits.

Q. When are you open?

A. Bearizona is open year-round.

June-August 15th: 7 Days a Week Open: 8:00 am, Last Admittance: 6:00 pm Park Closes: 7:30 pm 
January- February: 7 Days a Week Open: 10:00 am, Last Admittance: 4:00pm Park Closes 5:30 pm
All Other Months: 7 Days a Week Hours Vary

Q. How long does it take to go through Bearizona?

A. Visitors should allow at least two hours for the entire Bearizona adventure, which includes both the drive through and Fort Bearizona walk through portions. Visitors can travel through at their own pace, completing the visit in as little as one hour, or as long as they like. Once guests have paid admission, they may stay until the park closes at dusk, and drive through as many times as they wish.

Q. When is the best time of day to visit?

A. The animals are moving around best early in the morning or late in the afternoon. We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to the last bird show of the day,  going to the walk-through portion of the park first (Fort Bearizona), then finishing up your visit by driving through Bearizona.

Q. What will you see at Bearizona?

A. Bearizona uniquely showcases elusive animals that are conservation success stories . Visitors will see a wide variety of North American animals in their natural habitat. Our hope is that we can facilitate meaningful connections between visitors and indigenous species for the sake of continued preservation.
