We visited the zoo on April 19th. The price for adults was $7.99/each but I think the price changes once summer rolls around. It took about 1 1/2 hour to view every animals and there will probably be more animals in summer. It was very easy to follow the trails and had good signage. Would def. recommend this place and...

Went through the zoo in the cold and the snow, nice to see some of the animals actually out. The cages for someone of them were a little worse for wear, however, and not necessarily appropriate for the size and space they had. While there was a fair little variety of animals, it was just not up to the best... More

When our kids were younger we would always go to the zoo! The Magnetic Hill Zoo is rated 4th best zoo in Canada!!!! When you think about places like Calgary and Toronto you can understand why they have good zoos. BUT we are so lucky to have the Magnetic Hill Zoo right here in our back yard. A great variety...

We had a wonderful time when we went to magnetic hill to the U2 concert on July 30th 2011. We did not have the time to visit the zoo and other attractions, but they looked very interesting. The only bad thingwas the rain. It had rained hard all day so by the time we got to the field it was... More

Great outing with the family... A lot of different types of animals and amazement for everyone. If you want to eat there and you probably will have to, it's simple fast food stuff... Have a good visite it's worth it

On our way home from seeing Thomas and Saint John we made a stop at the Moncton Zoo with our 2 children who were 4 and 7 at the time. It was a beautiful day out and we enjoyed the walk as well as getting to see all of the animals. Feeding the little goats was our favourite part! Definitely... More

Loved the Primate Tour - singing with Gibbons was great. You hear them all over the park once they get riled up. Beautiful large cats. Was disappointed there were no tigers considering it's their logo animal and you see tiger stuff everywhere. Could use a vending machine for drinks up on the lion viewing platform.

By far this is the best managed as well as the best designed zoo for transport in nb. You will certainly enjoy the layout done variety.

Took my 5 year old grandson to this zoo last summer. We were early arrivals and not animals were present in their enclosures. This being said, my grandson really enjoyed his visit as the animals that he did see were very exciting and entertaining. He truly enjoyed the petting and feeding area for the deers. He was a happy camper... More

the location is good lots of parking,easy access clean grounds and nice staff but I have one huge complaint----the cages of some of the animals were just way too small and do not provide the animals much range of motion
