I've been to bigger, I've been to smaller but this is just a nice zoo!! Food choices are really decent. Priced too high but what place like this isn't. You just have to plan on it if your not planning on packing a lunch. We did the "ski ride" not sure what they call it but in my opinion it's... More

I love the zoo, grew up coming here, raised my kids coming here, hope to have grand kids to bring here. I love animals so it never gets old for me. This is one of the best zoos in the country. Yes, it is usually busy as it is not as large as others, but the animal variety is just... More

the Fort Wayne Children's zoo is a great place to take your family. An nice and easy place to walk around and view the animals. They have a few cool activities like a merry go round, train, pony ride, etc. Not a big city zoo so don't expect to see every type of animal you would see in Cleveland, San... More

The Fort Wayne Zoo is big enough to keep you and your family entertained but not so big that it is overwhelming or confusing.

This is a very cute zoo to visit, especially with children. The different areas are set around a center hub. The price was okay and parking was free. However, we rode the sky ride thinking it would give us a tour of the area, it did not.

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.
