Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Two panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining. « less

My husband and I, and our two daughters (11 and 12), visited the zoo mainly because it was part of our CityPass ticket book. It was a hot summer day and was pretty much a miserable experience. We visited on a Saturday, right after lunch and found it to be smelly, humid, and crowded. The animals were not very active,... More

Smaller ,well maintained, shaded, well organized, up close experiences with a large variety of animals. Perfect for all ages. Use city pass to get all rides included. Do all rides early so they won't be shut down by rain and get missed. Rock climbing, climbing structure with slide, beautiful carousel , train ride was weak and limited exposure to animals... More

We were on the last day of a birthday trip with our 12 year-old grandson and decided to go to the zoo. What an excellent day we had, by going on Sunday morning we did not have crowds and were able to see all the zoo in a manageable 2 1/2 hours. It was clean and the staff very friendly... More

The panda's were a great attraction but the train ride was disappointing. The parking was very limited and had to do off street parking.

We went to the zoo because it was included in the CityPass. It was wonderful! The zoo was a great addition to the CityPass and took about 2-3 hours to completely go through. The pandas were so cute and adorable, which was the highlight of the trip. Also, the giraffe feeding was great! For only $3, you can feed 2... More

I took our two children ages 5 and 1 to the zoo. We've been numerous times before and have been members in the past. My kids had so much fun that we renewed our membership. Get there at ordering before opening so that you have a close parking spot. Go in the opposite direction of the playground or you won't... More

The city passes when we went to the aquarium which gave us tickets to The Coca Cola factory and also lucky for us gave us tickets to the Atlanta zoo and wristband was included so that we can ride all the rides and do all the fun things for the children towards the end I highly...

City Pass is best to cover all the attractions in Atlanta that includes Atlanta zoo as well. You can reach this place either by bus or taxi. Make sure you inform the taxi driver that you will be paying by card before you start to anyplace in Atlanta. The food inside is little expensive. You can find better restaurants around... More

Sadly when we went in March majority of the animals were put away because it was cold and rainy. We were able to see the baby pandas which made it more fun but wish there had been more to do or see when it was so cold. Maybe a discount when they know they won't have as many animals out?... More
