While visiting in Tulsa, we had the wonderful opportunity to visit the aquarium in Jenks,Ok. I found it to be very well laid out with some wonderful features I had not see in other aquariums.

My wife, 2 1/2 year old daughter, and I arrived here about 9:30am on Sunday, Sept 14th. There were only a few dozen people already in at this time. We had a short wait in line for tickets. The train was not busy so we got tickets and boarded right away. Our daughter loves trains and tunnels, so the tunnel... More

We took our grandson on Tuesday and had cool weather and small crowds. Rode the train, carousel ,went to Penguin chat, petting zoo, and many animal exhibits. We were the only people at the petting zoo when we arrived and our grandson had one on one with the keeper and brushed every goat and sheep. He loved all the aquariums... More

The zoo has many great exhibits. There is a train that travels around the zoo, which the children love. The have wagons to pull the little ones in, there are petting zoos, places to eat and the children just love going there.

After living in Omaha for 16 years I had worked at one of the best zoos in the country. Tulsa's zoo was average. Clean and convenient but it seemed very over priced. From admission to concessions was an expensive outing. The train was not running that day either which took away from the overall experience.

My husband and I visit zoos all over the country. The price to enter was very reasonable, and since we have a zoo pass from our local zoo, we both got in for half price. The exhibits, grounds, and bathrooms were all very clean and well maintained. the zookeepers notes were informative and up to date. Although we did not... More

Loved the Dino exhibit. They really out did themselves with it. This zoo is a frequent choice for my husband and I for date days.

This was a awesome zoo. So well maintained. The animals all seemed happy. Wife had never seen a grizzly bear before. Daughter loved the sea lion. I enjoyed watching the meerkats. Got to talk to some very knowledgeable staff members. So glad we decided to drive up here. Can't wait to go back.

I was really disappointed by my trip here. The exhibits and the zoo overall seemed really run down and the price was much too high for how the zoo was run (especially since OKC zoo is only an hour and a half away, it's a lot better and a lot cheaper). I assume the high admission is to help them... More
