People say that a trip out west isn’t complete without a stop at Yellowstone Bear World in Idaho. But what is Yellowstone Bear World, and what do they do there?
Located 80 miles from Jackson, Wyoming, and West Yellowstone, Montana, visitors to Yellowstone National Park or the Grand Tetons can take a day trip to Idaho’s #1 wildlife attraction.
YBW offers amusement rides as part of the entertainment for children ages three and older. Children under 36” must have an adult ride with them, while those taller can ride alone as many times as they’d like.
Within the 125 acres is a one-acre petting zoo. Guests can get up close to adult and young animals such as deer, goats, pigs, and ducks. Access to the petting zoo is also included with admission.
Although attractions like Yellowstone Bear World attempt to educate visitors on an animals’ needs and habits, they aren’t adequately equipped to allow the animal to live naturally.
