Best zoo we have visited. Better than St.Louis even. Love how clean, hands on, interactive, and great prices they provide. We rode everything and at lunch and had the best day! Log ride is fun and food is good too! Loved the design of zoo too

Let me first start off by saying I think this is a great zoo in the midwest to visit given the size and the exhibits especially the Indonesian rainforest. However, my biggest complaint during our visit was the amount of people and traffic in and out of this place. Last time I checked all the summer holidays are behind us... More

Friendly staff, kid friendly, well kept. This zoo is located in a city park (so you can have picnic lunch) and has many activites get there early on nice days as there is often a line to get in.

The name of the zoo could be a bit misleading, because this is far, far more than just a petting zoo. Everything that you'd want in a zoo, you will likely find here. Big animals, little animals . . . and a Sky Safari ride. Most cities the size of Fort Wayne have nothing like this!

Our family loved this zoo! Can feed the giraffes, walk near the kangaroos, a water splash area for little ones. A wonderful experience! Would strongely recommend visiting! Only downside was the entrance fee was alittle pricey.

One of THE best zoos! A must for families. Just an awesome place and the roaming animals are fun to see. You feel like YOU are part of the zoo

The zoo used to be my favorite thing about Ft Wayne but the greed has just gotten way out of control there. The food and gift shop prices are more in line for Disney World, not a family attraction for locals in Ft Wayne. The food service and gift shop are subcontracted to an outside vender that sets the prices.... More

As a Fort Wayne resident I am very proud of our Zoo. I have visited zoos all over the world and our zoo is among the cleanest and family friendly I have seen.

We had fun at this zoo, its not too big and not too small. There are a lot of different animals too see. We went on the train ride, which was fun, and the river boat ride. We got to feed the giraffes, and one of my kids went on a pony ride.

This is an excellent zoo to take you children and be able to see a variety of animals. It's got some feeding areas of too so great "hands on" experience. It's a smaller zoo, but very clean and well laid out and reasonably priced. I've been here numerous times and plan on visiting again.
