NOTE!!!!!! Placement of this attraction is vital to their performance.  If the bears are placed near a loud ride and or an attraction that is noisy, the animals will be easily distracted and their behaviors will become difficult for the trainers.  In the interest of these wonderful animals and their performance, it is best to place them in as quiet an area as possible.

Grizzly Experience is an Educational Grizzly Bear show and Exhibit. We bring an in depth up close and personal look into the life of North Americas’ most prestigious predator, the Alaskan Grizzly Bear. Yogi, our 7 year old 600 pound Grizzly Bear and our two Juveniles, Dottie and Lea, delight crowds of all ages with their impressive sizes and amazing behaviors. 

Throughout the day patrons will witness Yogi and the cubs interacting with their handler and showing the amazing bond between Grizzly and man. During the daily shows one of the bears will perform many of his natural behaviors and we will talk about bear safety, what to do if you encounter a bear in the wild, the bear species in North America, and the magic of how bears are trained for the movies..
