You will have to purchase a ticket to the Zoo to get to this one. It is part of the Zoo complex now. It is an interesting tribute to one of America's most famous humorists.

If you visit the zoo you must drive up to the shrine. The view is absolutely amazing. The park ranger was very friendly and let the kids use the restroom in his office. We talked with him for quite awhile finding out he used to live 20 miles from us in central Wisconsin.

The Shrine itself is gorgeous with painted murals and gorgeous views from several different heights. I made it to the top of the shrine, barely, but I made it! Ha! This was a wonderful addition at the end of our afternoon at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo - definitely take the time to drive up and experience the shrine.

While visiting the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, I was told about this memorial but was told it was for Roy Rogers instead of Will. Nevertheless, I still wanted to go and see it for myself. You have to go through a gate at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, drive up a steep hill and it sits looking over Colorado Springs and the... More

Amazing views from the top of the tower. If you're going to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, entrance to the road that goes up to the Shrine is included in your admission fee.
