Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River. Be on the lookout for coyotes, bobcats, and more, and learn about the region's flora and fauna and Native American history from your guide.

Kind of disappointed we didnt see more animals but it could be the weather is not warm enough yet. Lots of walking without seeing but a few animals.

I can see where this would be a good day out for those with small children but as adults who've visited many zoos over the years the Phx Zoo was underwhelming at best. We would not be inclined to go back again... somewhat confusing layout & far too many exhibits closed or that contained no visible (or only had a sole animal) visible in them.

Travelled with myself, my wife, and my daughter. While decent in size, I found the layout poorly designed. We walked a number of loops and circles and ended up missing a big section of the zoo. They have a couple of exhibits that you don’t see everywhere, but the majority you can find almost anywhere. One thing we look for is information on conservation or where the animals came from. There’s very little of that at the Phoenix Zoo. I was also disappointed that there were a number of activities that cost extra once you are inside. If you rarely go to zoos, it’s probably worth it. If you frequent zoos, you can skip it.

This zoo was better than expected. My family really enjoyed the animals. Lots of variety of species and animal types. Easy to get around and see everything. Big parking lot. The price was on the high end. The tram/bus ride around the inside of the park was pricey. Many restaurants and food options. I would go back.

The park was laid out in an interesting and helpful manner. It helped to know which animals weren't present because they were receiving medical care, and that some animals were in captivity (the bald eagle, for instance) because they were injured and not about to survive in the wild. We loved all the animals "statues"/art scattered around the park , and then we were absolutely blown-away when we returned that evening for the Zoo Lights to find out they were transparent, lit up and, in some cases, mobile!! Even though we were tired and foot-sore we were SO GLAD we returned that night for the Zoo Lights walk through. Stunningly beautiful and creative!!!!!!
