Go back to the zoo when the remodeling is done and the animals are back. Spent time on trolley tour and as we passed vacant areas, we were told that the zoo is refurbishing and that the animals have been moved elsewhere until completed.

This zoo was more and more amazing with each exhibit we visited. The Dome and the Lied Jungle were incredible. I can't wait to get back there again.

This zoo by far is the best zoo in the Midwest! My family tries to make it there as often as possible. Great food, great animals, great employees! All in all it is a fun place to be. The animals are taken care off and it is not a place that you go to and feel bad for them being... More

Being from San Diego, site of my favorite zoo, I can't rate this zoo as #1, but it was right up there as one of the best. We were impressed by how the zoo managed the weather conditions in the Midwest and had many indoor habitats that were amazing. I was so surprised to find an aquarium within the zoo... More

Being a Florida native I have seen most of the animals in the zoo near my home or at the theme parks near my home. The aquarium far surpasses the aquarium in downtown Tampa, Fl and I highly recommend that everyone makes the aquarium one of their first stops. It has excellent opportunities for pictures too. For lunch I recommend... More

I really like how visitors to the zoo can see the animals whether they are in inside or out. Some of the animals seemed to not have much room, but this allows visitors to see many animals in one area. The dome was cool and had some really neat animals in their natural habitat. The aquarium was AMAZING. This was... More

This has been the best Zoo we have ever been too! All the animals were wonderful to see and got very good looks at them. Even the Prairie Dogs came right up to you to say hello.

Hands down the best Zoo I've ever been to. The sites and attractions are just incredible. I spent a solid 7 hours there enjoying 1 area after another. There is so much to say about this place, but I wouldn't give it justice. Easily one of my favorite attractions in the entire world.

Everything is great about the zoo - compact (doesn't feel like you are walking forever), lots of indoor exhibits (cooler/not affected by rain), aquarium is very cool (go when they are feeding the sharks to watch from the tunnel).

So much to love about this place. Not a single exhibit had that "wow...this feels like it hasn't been updated in 20 years" feel that so many zoos boast. Everything is designed around experience and access for kids, which is a plus. SkySafari? Yes! Train ride? Yes! So much to love here. Biggest disappointment and rip-off was the $5 camel... More
