Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium

Following the successful plan of the first three aquarium buildings, the latest Wildlife World Aquarium building will also have outdoor animal exhibits, including an indoor-outdoor pool with underwater viewing that will provide a permanent home for three adult small-clawed otters and a recent litter of pups temporarily on display in the Aquarium Predator Building.

Visitors to the Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium will enjoy the park's grand entrance complete with paved, lighted and always free parking. The entrance sits at the corner of Northern and Sarival Avenues, just 1/2 mile east of the intersection of state route 303 and Northern in Litchfield Park. This two-story landmark has an inviting central breezeway with multiple ticket windows. Plus, the new gift shop located at the west end features terrestrial zoo animal items while the east gift shop specializes in aquatic animal merchandise.
The new indoor Aquarium and extended hours of operation has helped make Wildlife World a year round family-fun and dining destination. The largest structure in the complex, the Predator building, holds real sharks, stingrays you can touch and feed, eels and the rare albino alligator.

Located along the western edge of the Phoenix metropolitan area in Litchfield Park, the Wildlife World Zoo first opened its doors in 1984. With the opening of the Aquarium, Wildlife World has solidified its position as home to Arizona's largest collection of exotic animals with over 6000 animals representing more than 600 species. More than 500,000 people, including some 85,000 students at a significantly reduced admission, visit annually. As a privately owned and operated institution, Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium relies solely on gate attendance and retail sales to generate its operating and capital budgets. It receives zero public tax support, grants, or financial donations.

The Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium is located at 16501 W. Northern Ave., Litchfield Park, AZ 85340. We are open 365 days a year. Zoo exhibits are open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aquarium exhibits are open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission to the zoo and aquarium is $27.50 for adults and $14.25 for children 3 to 12 (plus state sales tax), children under three are free. Special evening-only admission (after 5 p.m.) to the Aquarium is $16.99 for adults and $8.99 for children 3 to 12 (plus state sales tax).
