We have had a zoo membership for many years, and will continue to have one. This zoo is absolutely wonderful. You are up close and personal with a lot of the animals. There is a petting zoo area that the path you take to get there is really pretty. Penguins are so much, get the little ones ready for a... More

I always like to visit the zoo when I go to Wichita. It is arranged in a way that you get to "travel the world" in the different areas. The petting zoo is fun.

This is a wonderful zoo. Animals are not in cages, most are free to roam. And it only gets better with time.

The zoo has a lot of construction going on and many of the exhibits were closed. I've been before and was impressed. This year I was disappointed.

great zoo - lousy at membership services - need to update the computer system - nice to be able to take in outside food and drink - makes the outing more affordable

This Kansas zoo gives other zoos in the country and abroad a serious run for their money. All the property is well-kept and the animals seem to be hearty and healthy. Lots of kids is always a good sign. Despite that, we still did not feel suffocated. The zoo is large enough to keep its visitors spread out. Was only... More

I've had a membership for years and we try to go at least once per month even in the winter. The pizza by the bears is a must, and don't forget the sno-cones in the summer!

I was a Wichita resident for 5 years and visited this zoo multiple times with children and groups. Sometimes, it was fantastic and all of the areas were in full-swing. Sometimes, it was not so great with exhibits closed. I would check ahead of time if there is something you really want to see. The high points are that it's... More

We just moved here in June and have already visited the zoo twice! I still don't think that we have seen everything. Even on busy days, it doesn't seem that busy. We've gone during the week and it was almost empty. The kids really love being able to see all the different animals and they enjoyed the boat ride as... More
