Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is America's ONLY mountain zoo. Large alpine habitats are home to over 950 different animals and approximately 180 species. All of your favorites are here - monkeys, hippos, tigers, elephants and bears (oh my!). Hand-feed their large reticulated giraffe herd, and experience animals up-close, like never before.

This is a great zoo to take your family to! The exhibits are all very nice and kept up very well. There is an opportunity to feed the giraffes and the elephants. They are working on parts of the zoo that still need updating and they do not have polar bears. Great exercise and time well spent with the family!

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is one of the nicest zoos I have been too. The docents are friendly and quite knowledgeable. No matter what time of year I go to the zoo there is always something new to see and experience. There are many activities for young and old alike.

The animals and the amount of territory to cover are well work your viewing for walking-learning-seeing-enjoying. Up in the Australian section they had animals among "art" which was charming.

Of course the star of this zoo is the giraffes but they are not the only cool exhibits. We went on a very active grizzly bear day. They were swimming and playing in the water with their toys and entertained the kids for quite some time. They will never forget the giraffes eating out of their hands and many of... More

Great zoo - they have made many improvements over the past couple of decades including a grizzly bear home, giraffe feeding area (bring a lot of $1 bills), new lion home, Mountaineer Sky Ride, and an new elephant home! It's the highest altitude zoo in the US and the view of Colorado Springs is wonderful. They have a large selection... More

What's unique about this zoo is it's location. Well into the foothills of the Rockies, you get a very nice view of the Broadmoor area as well as Colorado Springs. Lots of things to do for the kids and lots animals to view (who wants to feed the elephants?). Make sure you're in shape, when you walk it's either uphill... More

This Zoo is amazing - from the great giraffe program they have, to the (smelly) monkey house, the tigers and elephants impress as well. There's a beautiful carousel, many kid's areas - This past year, several babies joined the zoo family - don't miss the orangutans and gorillas! And make sure you have on great walking shoes - touring this... More

We were on a group vacation, and had a dinner for at least 100 folks at the zoo. This was a fun way to do something different. The food was above average catered buffet food. The best part was before the meal, when the opened the giraffe area set up a couple of bars for beer and wine, and let... More

One of the highest elevation zoos in the US. Feeding the giraffes on the raised feeding platform is really cool.

This is one of the really nice highlights of Colorado Springs. A bit pricey, but it is self-sustaining from ticket sales and generous donors. A wide range of fauna from all over the world. Clean and well maintained. Don't forget to visit the Shrine to Will Rogers which is now part of the Zoo complex - the view is great... More
