PREPARE TO BE AWED! Hop aboard a comfortable tram for a narrated tour of 435 acres in which American bison, Roosevelt elk, woodland caribou, bighorn sheep, moose and deer roam free. See bears, Canada lynx, bobcats, cougars, foxes, wolves and other native Northwest animals in natural exhibits along paved pathways under towering evergreens. Soar high in the sky on our Zip Wild set of zip line/challenge courses that test both mental and physical agility. All just an hour's drive from Seattle - but a world away. Say ahhhhhhh!

Great park to get up close to animals. The tram ride is the best. Relaxing and have always been able to see animals!

The Caribou were when we were there all around the trams at the gate. The antlers literally brushed inside the tram (no danger they were walking by). I have always loved going there as a quiet and restful place but there wasn't much for the...More
