Visit the Phoenix Zoo at Papago Park (Galvin Parkway, south of McDowell Road in Phoenix).
Aside from animal encounters with monkeys, giraffes, lions, camels, and goats, to name a few of the 1,400 or so animals on-site, families can take kids on pedal boats and ride the safari train or carousel. Additional charges apply for these activities.
Experience the wonder of 4-D at the Phoenix Zoo’s new 4-D Theater. Its the first of its kind in the Valley! Each show is different and will make you feel like its all real, you are there utilizing smells, water, wind, and other various in-theater effects. Additional fees apply.
