Nice Mountain Side Zoo. Girafee Feeding is fun and the Views from the Mountain Zoo are Excellent. Plan atleast Half a day if you intend to see the Entire Zoo. Have to do quite a bit of walking.

This is an excellent zoo set up in the Cheyenne mountainside in Colorado Springs. I would pay $2 each for the shuttle early on if you aren't used to the altitude. The shuttle drivers are fun and get you from one exhibit to the other and walking up hill constantly tires you out. Bring cash for feeding the giraffes. Excellent... More

This zoo was very good if you like giraffes...They have lots of them! We had trouble with all the walking (extremely hilly) and getting around (hard to figure out where to go next due to confusing map). Other than that (and missing the elephants) we really enjoyed ourselves. Animals are usually entertaining. Probably would have been a tram offered had... More

Great mountain-side zoo where the animals are displayed as naturally as possible. This zoo is privately owned so anything you can do to keep it in business is a great help to the community and the animals. The food is also unusually good for a public place.

We recently spent the morning at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo with our toddler grandson. He loved it and so did we. We fed the giraffes, watched the African Lions and Cougars, and had the closest encounter with a Moose ever. Then, we had a nice lunch with a spectacular view of Colorado Springs.

Really enjoyed the Zoo, a little pricey for the food but still. Take the lift thing if you can, we went right over the Tiger cage...

Had time one afternoon while staying at The Broadmoor to take in the sights and animals of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. To say the views are breathtaking is a huge understatement!! If you like to take pictures like me, this is a great photo opportunity not only because of the sprawling city/mountain views but because of the huge selection of... More

Although a small zoo, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is unique in its location on a mountainside, and the close and personal nature of your animal encounters. My wife fed a Rhino and a Giraffe, and the giraffe even gave her a big wet kiss! I was so close to a mountain lion who was prowling the front of it's exhibit,... More

Took a family group to the zoo & all enjoyed the experience, especially the giraffes! Also enjoyed the gorillas & seeing some of the more local wildlife in more natural settings. Pity the Australian section was closed for renovations, would have liked to say g'day to the budgies & wallabies...

This Zoo is smaller than most but won't disappoint. Many exotic animals and an amazing giraffe pen where they are right in your face! Watch out for their tongues though long and slimey! Dan and Phyllis Denver, CO
