WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Williams' favorite Drive-Thru Wildlife Park, Bearizona, is apparently becoming many people's favorite Drive-Thru Wildlife Park. The ever-popular attraction, located right here in northern Arizona, just broke its own attendance records this past Labor Day weekend.

The three-year-old park, which opened May 22, 2010, saw a total of 1,580 cars come through its gates between Saturday and Monday, Sept. 1-3, during the three-day weekend. The final count of people that visited Bearizona on those three days was 6,320. These are all record-breaking numbers.

Sept. 2 was Bearizona's busiest day of all with 2,832 people visiting the wildlife park, shattering all previous records.

Bearizona is located at 1500 E. Route 66, at the intersection of I-40 and U.S. Hwy 64 (Route 66) in Williams, Ariz.

Bearizona's hours of operation are 8 a.m-5 p.m. seven days a week and features animals such as bears, bison, wolves, sheep, goats, ferrets, and more. For additional information, admission prices, and park rules visit their website at www.bearizona.com.
