The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo puts the Denver Zoo to shame! It is a gorgeous zoo that is built in the mountains. My advice is to go EARLY and stop by the grocery store and buy some lettuce to feed the giraffes. Although, they only charge $3 to buy the lettuce there, it would be more cost effective. Feed the giraffes... More

This zoo was overall boring and just flat out bad. The only semi interesting thing was the giraffes and half of the exhibits had no animals. They actually had an exhibit dedicated to a Guinean pig they had so few animals, terrible and would not go back.

We really really enjoyed the zoo. Giraffe exhibit was our favorite! So neat that the kids were able to pet them! We also like the giraffe camera! My mother and father in law were able to hop on the internet and watch my boys feed the giraffes lie from thousands of miles away! The only bad thing I would say... More

We love the zoo, exhibits are interesting and fun. Feeding the elephants and giraffes is exciting. I love the snake exhibit they have, very modern and colorful. We always sit and wait to see the wolves but haven't been able to our last couple of visits. Horse rides are fun for kids, and my daughter got a kick out of... More

I grew up in the Colorado Springs area, and went to Cheyenne mountain zoo a lot for field trip and stuff like that. I definitely took it for granted growing up, but recently returned with my girlfriend for the safari of lights. I forgot how much fun this place was, and how beautiful it is during that time of year.... More

This zoo is privately funded and doesn't have a lot of hands on that other zoos have. But with that being said, still a nice adventure. There is a lot of hiking up and down to see the entire park so it tends to be a little challenging! I'd like to see more open natural habitats being a mountain zoo.... More

Love this Zoo! The mountain atmosphere really makes this zoo feel different. Must see the giraffes. You can buy small cookies to feed them on top a platform, very cool. The bird house is awesome as well, birds flying freely around you. Be prepared for a hike though. It is very hilly and will give you a pretty good work... More

Over-hyped attraction. Displays make it difficult to see animals. Terrain is not friendly. Mostly an over-priced ($18 adult admission to a freaking zoo???) souvenir shop that I won't be returning to any time soon.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is one of my favorite zoos. They have well designed enclosures that allow patrons to view the animals from various distances - safety and minimal disturbance to the animals being their top concern. My wife and I have lived in Colorado Springs for several years. We have been members of the zoo since shortly after our arrival.... More

The zoo staff is excellent and the animals are happy and friendly ! Really nice set up but wear comfortable footwear there is a lot of walking. The giraffe exhibit was my favorite!
