If you're already at the zoo, I would recommend taking the time to drive up to the Will Rogers Memorial Shrine of the Sun. If for nothing else, the view is terrific from the shine.

If you pay for the zoo, you get to drive up to this shrine for free. Even though we had gone to the zoo for many years, I never took the trip up there and this place is beautiful. It only takes about 10 minutes to get to the top and then its a quick walk to the shrine. The... More

If you want to learn about Will Rogers and the things he did, go see this. If you just want to see a view of the whole city, go here. Such a beautiful view.

Great view and the shrine is beautiful. You can see it lit up at night. Not too bad of a drive up. Glad we did it after the zoo.

If you go to the zoo you can get in free and it's well worth the trip. You can go to the top and get a beautiful over view of Colorado. There are pictures of Will Rogers life on every floor.

If you go to the zoo you can get in here for free. It is a place to relax and read about Will Rogers. You can climb to the top of the tower for a beautiful view. They have a very loud chime that chimes on the hour. You can also read about the family that dedicated this to Will.

Because we were going to the zoo, and the Shrine is included in the ticket, we drove up to take a look. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much. But, we had a delightful visit. Even the children enjoyed our time. The views are great and the Will Rogers exhibit is very nice. It's 94 steps to the top and... More

Got to go here for free with our zoo tickets. Had seen this from the Broadmoor, but had no idea how to get there. Unbelievable views, and you can climb to the top of the tower, which is not for the faint of heart- most in our group didn't go all the way up.

Great views of Colorado Springs. Slow drive up through Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Steep stairs up the shrine and then the great views.
