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

We arranged group entry for our guests the weekend of the wedding. I arranged this by email with the kind staff. To get the group rate, I had to estimate the number of adults and children ahead of time and then they left a pile of special tickets for us at the front gate. We had to pay $300 for... More

Animals from many areas of the world, very family friendly layout. We arrived at 0915 and the animals were very active. The major exhibits are arranged around a central plaza display. This offers multiple rest areas, and little excess walking to go from one exhibit area to another. Shows what thought and planning can produce. My 10yr old, Samuel, told... More

This is a great zoo. I've been to a few zoos and while Sedgwick County could use a few aesthetic updates, the lay out is fantastic and the best organized of any zoo I have ever seen, and when you are slogging through the heat with kids for the sole purpose of seeing animals, a well laid out park is...

Wichita really has one of the best zoos in the world, and it's a can't miss for anyone visiting. The only downfall is the food options, but forget the food and focus on the exhibits.

Great place to take young children. Well maintained, with the animals in decent confinement. The birds are a particular treat. The Zoo also has events including top notch music. My wife and I caught blues guitarist/singer Robert Cray there, close up and affordable.

The zoo not only has great outdoor animal exhibits, its jungle is also one not to be missed, plus it's interactive exhibits and "baby" facility make it great for kids. Something for everyone.

We absolutely LOVED this zoo. We have been to quite a few zoos and found this one the most interactive. It was a great size and the exhibits were close together which kept the kids attention better then some of the bigger zoos. We will definitely return!
