not the biggest Zoo in America. You will love the small atmosphere along with the view. You are up close and personal with the animals. Ride the train. Nice place to be able to share nature with your kids.

My 2nd trip to the zoo. Small & quaint. Good prices, unique animals, train wasn't running. Wonder about the size of the snow leopard pen, if it's big enough as one was just pacing. Staff quickly removed a copperhead snake found in the vulture enclosure. Didn't visit the gift shop. A snack bar would be a plus if the gift... More

Looking for something to do with the kids to kill sometime and not spend a fortune. This was a nice find. Small Zoo but worth the price.

My wife and I stopped in July. Both of us work in the Zoo field so going and checking out zoos is something that we love to do. We had heard this was a small zoo but well worth the visit. Glad that we went out of our way to visit this zoo. The staff were very friendly. While checking... More

Definitely not worth driving a long distance to, but if you are a local or in the area it's worth visiting. For the small assortment of animals , the tickets are a bit pricey. We have been to other small zoos , but this is by far the smallest we have seen. Also, as an animal lover, it breaks my... More

Every time we visit Roanoke we make a trip up to the Star on Mill Mtn. This past recent trip we decided to visit the zoo. The cost was under $40.00 for our family of four adults. The zoo is on the small side but we had a great time ! We encountered two zoo workers who were eager to... More

I ran across photos and a write up on the zoo when it was a happening place. It looked amazing, variety of things to see and do. It looked like a great place to visit. Now...in 2013 and on...we only have this place that houses some beautiful animals, but seems so small, so sad...it deserves more. I know the economy... More

So my wife and I decided to get away for the weekend. We considered many places previously visited and enjoyed and in the end we decided to visit Roanoke Virginia. Once we settled into our hotel room we started browsing through the many activities brochures most (if not all) hotels have. We selected a few and among them was the... More

This was a very affordable and neat little zoo. Wasn't really sure what to expect, but they had several animals and it was only $15 for two people to go. Also offered a train/trolly ride through the exhibits if you did not want to walk, though it was not a bad walk at all. Feeding time for the red pandas... More

We visited here with my family and two young nieces and it was worth the admission price. It is nothing spectacular but due to the size you are able to get pretty close to the animals to see them really well which the girls loved. And it wasn't too over crowded which made it much more enjoyable for us all.... More
