We visited this zoo and had a great time. There will be plenty of walking, both up and down terrain. You can also catch a free ride on their four-seaters in case yo get tired. As always fr me, I like the big predators and was not disappointed. The snow leopard with those large tails? Giraffes that you can feed?... More

Get your walking shoes on, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We had a great time at this zoo, and my kids can't wait to go back. Our favorite was definitely feeding the giraffes. The only reason I didn't give this zoo five stars, is because we are frequent visitors to the Henry Doorley Zoo in Omaha, which is beyond compare.... More

You definitely need more than 2 1/2 hours to visit everything. Saw some animals we never seen before and saw a cute porcupine who stood up and gave a high five. The gorilla/monkeys were also unique - to be able to see artwork created by them and to see the baby. Tram needs to improved - it's the first time... More

The animals look so happy there. A fun day for kids of all ages! But watch out, the hills are steep, but thankfully there are buses to help out if needed.

Went with my Wife several times, and all of the different exhibits are great to see. You can also go up to the Will Rogers Shrine if you desire. It gives a great view of the city.

This is supposedly the #5 zoo is the US. I've been to a lot of zoos and find this one a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the animals paced a lot even though their exhibit was good sized. It's a small zoo but they seem to do a lot of enrichment programs, and there's a schedule of different... More

I have now visited the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo twice - once in 2011 and then again in September 2014. It is still my favorite zoo for many reasons. I love the experience of feeding the giraffes! I wish other zoos would make animal interactions like this one a priority. There is nothing quite like being licked by a hungry giraffe.... More

Ever advancing for the betterment of their animals! If you can't deal with walking up hills remember this Zoo is in the foothills so you may struggle a tad. I can't say enough good things about this Zoo...go see it for yourself!
