WILLIAMS, Ariz. -- If you're looking for adventure, you need look no further than Bearizona in Williams.

Open for more than two years now, Bearizona is a "Jurassic Park" style park, which means you drive through -- with your doors locked and your windows closed.

3TV's Ryan O'Donnell headed north to give us a look at the park, and whet your appetite for more.

The park offers you the unique opportunity to see wild animals -- up close and personal -- in their natural environments.

"Bearizona uniquely showcases elusive animals that are conservation success stories," according to the park's website..

While not one-of-a-kind, there aren't many places like Bearizona.

"There are very few other places in North America where they can see all of the animals that we have to offer -- in the wild -- from the convenience and safety of their own vehicle," explained Vanessa Stoffel, the chief operations officer at Bearizona.

In addition to the drive-through park, there's also a more traditional zoo -- Fort Bearizona -- that smaller animals, including bear cubs, call home.

Open all year long, Bearizona is located in Williams, which is about 30 minutes west of Flagstaff.
