For $75 you can get a family pass for the year. That includes free parking. We stop in for short visits so kids don't get overtired. Our kids enjoy it and if you do not go with too high of expectations, you will have a good time.

Went to the zoo for the first time in a couple of years this weekend. It was a lot of fun! The animals were out enjoying the beautiful weather. Made our way through every exhibit in 2.5 hours. There is a huge part that is under construction but it's going to be amazing when it is done, so no big... More

Terrible. We purchased unlimited train rides for the entire family. There was a very long line, we had to stand there like an hour or so, which was not a problem. What happened was that given that a lot of people had these unlimited ride tickets too, so when the train got to the station a lot of people would... More

We visited the Tulsa Zoo in October 2015 and it is one of the best zoos I've ever visited. The zookeeper staff at this zoo is second to none. The love they have for their jobs is amazing....they are caring, intelligent, and hard-working. The zoo itself was under construction but seemed to be organized well and was very clean. It's...

For a city as large as Tulsa, the zoo was a disappointment. Every time we have visited, there have been several exhibits closed or empty. The food places are hit and miss also.
