Probz won't be going back for another 10 yrs. Fun, I loved the gorillaz and the butterfly exhibit and the tigers. Def won't be going on welfare day or low income day or whatever they call it on Wednesdays. WAY too many ratchet people and kids and strollers. Ugh. And some exhibits were way to packed with people. The line... More

My boyfriend and I visited this zoo. We bought the total experience tickets online and it was a great deal. I loved the zoo! It was beautiful and spacious and the animals appeared well taken care of. The food can be a bit pricy but to be honest that is expected. Walking the grounds is fantastic ( like a walk... More

I hate driving for long periods of time, but this was worth it. I enjoyed the Bronx Zoo a lot! The Bronx Zoo is very large. That is both a good and bad thing. There is a lot of walking (bad), but since it is large, there was so much to see (good). I'm not the biggest animal lover, but... More

Well the zoo is located in a deserted location but its worth visiting. The best part is they encourage you for free visit in next 6 months. The jungle world was fabulous. Very well made and the animals and birds are kept in very good natural environment. Tram ride is also worth it where we gottu see the tiger climbing... More

Spend the whole day here. It is very safe and there is a safe drive from manhattan to bronx on the highway. Purchase that Total Experience tickets and you will see everything. The Asia Monorail, JungleWorld, African Plains, and World of Birds are really nice exhibits to see. In the gift shop they have cute animals that you can buy... More

I am a teacher and a native New Yorker and have been to the zoo many, many times. If you are visiting the city, I recommend visiting the zoo. I have been to zoos around the world and this is one of the best. I would not recommend taking public transportation (especially from Manhattan) because it is so far. My... More

Everything! The dinosaur dinosaur exhibit was outstanding. The monorail through the african plains was worth the trip. We got there early and had no lines .... as the day went on it got crowded. It was clean and easy to get around. WE had our grandchildren 9 and 12 and they were not bored!!! neither were we !!! Great trip

This zoo, number one it was VERY expensive... They do have a bunch of animals that you wouldnt see elsewhere, but the walking was ridicules! It seemed like there was more empty space than anything. We arrived at about 10:30am and didnt leave until 5pm AND we missed a few of the animals somehow... The lunch they serve there isnt... More
