Self Guided Walking Tour
Fort Bearizona is a separate walk-through area, located directly after the drive-through portion of the park. The Fort is also where all of the shows occur and where visitors load onto the Wild Ride Bus. There is also the "Bearizona Barnyard" petting zoo and a Mine Shaft Experience, which houses some nocturnal animals as well as some creepy, crawly critters.
Visitors will walk through Fort Bearizona, located directly after the drive-through portion of the park. In this area, guests leisurely stroll through winding walkways to get an up-close look at Jaguars, Grizzly Bears, and the playful antics of smaller animals.
Interpretive signage is located throughout for guests to learn more about each animal. There is also the “Bearizona Barnyard” petting zoo, a Mine Shaft Experience which houses some nocturnal animals as well as some creepy, crawly critters and a unique exhibit that houses kindergarten bears not quite old enough to go into our adult enclosure.
This exhibit has a very distinctive feature where visitors can walk into a cave which leads them to a large viewing glass of the bears' den!
