This is a well thought out zoo and will be amazing once all the exhibits are finished. I liked the fact that there weren't cages . They have a great monkey area.

We rode the St Charles Trolley to a stop just across from the Loyola University campus, which is as close as you can get to the Zoo itself unless you drive. From this trolley stop you can walk (about 1 mile through Audubon Park) if the weather is nice, or you can catch the shuttle to the zoo front entrance.... More

This was a must see after visiting 21 years earlier. We bought the package for the aquarium, IMAX, zoo and insectarium. A great value. We rode the bus over and the streetcar back using the $3 all day pass. The zoo was not crowded, we arrived after lunch. We ate hamburgers while there, the food was average. We saw many... More

Hate to say it but they are kind of mailing it in if you asked me. Service in the restaurants was about as bad as any place I've ever been. Some guy is pressure washing the sidewalk right next to the sea lion show during the only 15 mins of the day they do it... Some cheesy animatronic dinosaur exhibit... More

Very nice zoo, many exhibits are expansive and open air, which make you feel very good about the animals in them. If you follow the paths around, there's always something to see, there really aren't patches of long walking like other zoos I've been to. Everything seemed easy to find and get to! There's a shuttle that meets you at... More

They have more additions coming. We loved what we did see. :) Everyone was so friendly and the place was clean. The "train" ride could have been longer but it was still a nice ride.

We purchased the Audobon combo ticket experience. Out of the four attractions, the zoo was by far the worst. The aquarium, Imax, and even insectarium blow this zoo away. So here goes... We waited in the line when the zoo opened, but we didnt have to. Since we already had tickets, we could have bypassed the entrance line and entered... More

Very large, clean, nice zoo. They were building new quarters for some of the animals, but what we were able to see was great. Order your passes on line so you do not have to stand in line. (If you order for the other attractions, you will save more). You can go outside the gate and return if you bring... More

We had are hopes up thinking this was going to be a great Zoo and was sadly disappointed. You had to hunt for the animals and lots of construction where they use to be. The train ride pointed out a water park for adults they were building I thought was odd for a Zoo. The food was very bad and... More
