If you have the time, make a day of this zoo. Great exhibits, loved the butterflies. Desert Dome is great, aquarium is well done, too.

What a great family time! Easy to spend hours enjoying the fun. Watch for group or family specials. What else do you want to know about a zoo

I was there an entire day and still did not get through the entire zoo. I wished I could have stayed another day. The zoo is amazing and full of so many types of animals. There is an immense amount of walking involved but there is a sky tram that can take you from one point to another point in... More

Everything at the zoo is large scale. The desert dome is amazing! I took a lot of great photos at the zoo and saw many great things. Only downside and there is a solution they offer... All the walking. Take the tram or sky ride to make it easier on yourself. AWESOME ZOO!! Will likely return to visit again.

There are some zoos you just have to experience. The San Diego Zoo, The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, The National Zoo, and the Henry Doorly Zoo.

I loved it period. We all tried a bunch of stuff we have never done before and it was a great experience for us and the kids. It was clean speedy service even though it was a little pricey. I was a little upset that the new stingray exhibit was closed since it was part of what we were coming... More

The zoo is awesome! Very big, so be ready to do some hilly walking. Only wish the quality of food was better or prices we less. You can bring your own stuff in, but we came from out of state, so we didn't pack food for the visit.

Such a great time. We purchased the ride pass and were very happy we did - I believe it was $56 for our family of four, we rode the train twice, carousel once, and sky ride once as well - it more than paid for itself! I was surprised how hilly the zoo was! I would love to go back... More

During a customer conference in June, the hosting company rented the zoo after-hours for dinner, drinks, and visiting many of the exhibits. Without having previously heard of this zoo, I was pleasantly surprised by its scale and overall quality. Although we only got to visit a small fraction of the exhibits - in part since some are closed at night,... More
