Outside of being way overpriced, we love what they've done to the zoo since we visited 20 years ago. Our teenagers had a blast and our kindergartener thoroughly enjoyed her visit. Built on hills with paved paths, steps and rails, this zoo can accommodate all sorts of needs. Very family friendly. The design of this zoo is creative and fun,... More

We enjoyed seeing all of the giraffes. The children loved being able to feed them the lettuce that is sold for $2 a bag. We rode the skyline ride when we entered, and then did quite a bit of walking. The Africa and Australia sections were great. We saw giraffes, elephants, black bears, bald eagles, lions, tigers, okapis, a wallaby...... More

For some reason I was under the impression that this was a "free range" zoo. The only drawcard of this zoo was the location and vistas. whilst the Africa section was more modern (Giraffes and elephants) all the indoor enclosures were extremely bad-smelling and run down. Enclosures were small, and most animals appeared markedly un(der)-stimulated, and one of the primates... More

I loved this zoo! The scenery is beautiful. The animals were fantastic. We were able to see a grizzly bear UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. I'm not sure if it was a male or female, but it was playing with a little girl's hand. Of course there was a clear barrier between us and the bear, but you sure couldn't tell... More

This was my first trip to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and I really feel that it was worth the money. I was happy with the cost of admission because I haven't visited any other zoo that allowed me to feed giraffes, pet a baby wallaby, and even feed an elephant. It does cost extra to feed the animals ($2 for... More

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, is definitely one of my favorite attractions around Colorado Springs. It has gone through several changes in recent years, and is amazing now. The North America, Africa, and Asia exhibits are great! It is a smaller zoo, but perfect for a half to full day visit. The animal variety is perfect, and everything is well maintained.... More

A nice Zoo (and we are big Zoo fans) - on the smaller side and for those that have challenges walking up/down inclines it might be problematic, but the exhibits are well done, though the Zoo is on the smaller side. Good animal exhibits, and though the walking is up/down it is on the smaller side. A nice side trip... More

Nice Zoo with fantastic views, the mountain lions cage was far to small, feeding the Giraffes was great for the Children.

We had a wonderful time at the zoo. We didn't get to see all of the animals but that was due to: time constraints and the fact that it was difficult to push/pull my 70# daughter uphill in a wagon (she had cut her leg at our hotel pull and had new stitches) in 90+ degree heat. I'd forgotten how... More
