It was a little expensive to get in, but we had a great experience. My 8 year old son got to feed a giraffe, an elephant, and pet a wallaby. There we plenty of animals to see. There's a sky tram you can ride and see amazing views. Of course, being in a mountain, there are amazing views everywhere. We... More

This place is a must-visit zoo if you are in the Colorado Springs area. Lots of interactive opportunities with the animals, alongside a beautiful setting, built into the mountain. Kids love this place from feeding the Giraffe's to the restored Carousel near the top of the zoo, this zoo is loaded with great attractions for fun day!

Nicely laid out and very informative as well as fun. There are hills but it's not that bad to walk (also have trams available). They are very environmentally and animal conscientious. Donate to wildlife fund available.

It ranked one of top ten zoo in the nation and now I see why! I actually fed a giraffe! I pet a wallaby. I felt the animals were free to roam and we just happened to see it! Great visit and we will go back, ,

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is a really nice zoo for a medium sized town like the Springs. It is situated on the side of Cheyeeen Mountain behind the Broadmoor Hotel & overlooks the city. The giraffe feeding is always a favorite as well as the Wolf enclosure. Great stop for families with small children.

You have to take the chair lift so you can see the whole zoo and the town of Colorado Springs. We started our day with the chair lift and it helped us scout out the rest of the day. The animals are fun to see. Some you can pet and feed.

Feeding Giraffe is certainly the most breath taking experience ever had, there are a very good number of giraffes in good condition who are willing to come close to be fed, they are more friendly towards the kids. The bird feeding area is really nice with a lot of colorful once. Wallabies looking like kangaroos were next in my favorite.... More

Fabulous zoo! Giraffe exhibit by far exceeded my expectations! This was our first trip to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and will be happy to bring my kids when we come back.

This is one of the best zoos in the midwest! We really loved the close access to the animals in very natural settings and it was great fun to feed the giraffes! Don't miss the drive up to the shrine as well -- great views!

This is the the best zoo our family has ever visited! The giraffes especially were a big hit, and the landscaping and design of the zoo is excellent. You get some great views of Colorado Springs and the surrounding area.
