Animal Encounters

Buy Tickets

Throughout the day, don't be surprised if you find yourself in the middle of a unique experience with an animal ambassador and one of their friendly keepers in our Walk-Thru Fort Bearizona. New this year is a focus on educating people about our animal friends and the environment in which they live. Some of these encounters are not on any set schedule, so keep an eye out (and up) and prepare for the unexpected. It may just be a Bearizona animal keeper with a small reptile answering questions as you walk the paths or a giant Vulture flying above your head. We are excited about this new focus on animal enrichment and education ... and we hope you are too.
