Season passes are worth it. Bring family and friends for free along with the season pass. You get VIP entrance to special events such as boo zoo. Great small zoo that can easily be a short 2 to 4 hour visit. They have most of the animals you'd want to see, bring your own food to save some money, and... More

I really enjoyed our visit to the Hogle Zoo - big enough that it is easy to spend several hours at without being overwhelmed. One of the cleanest zoos I've been too. The baby Orangutan is super cute. Food is good without being overpriced. Staff are super friendly especially in the gift shop. Kids everywhere having a great time.

We took our family of 5 to the zoo, and stayed about 4 hours, and we loved every minute of it. The place was clean, not too crowded (even though we went on a Saturday), and there was plenty of room to get around people or to pull off to the side and not be in other people's way. There... More

I loved walking around this zoo with my grandchildren. It is large enough to keep them occupied, yet small enough that we were fully able to enjoy every part of it. It is a well designed zoo, with attractive displays, that seem to be evolving into a more animal friendly presentation as renovations are taking place. I enjoyed visiting one... More

For me, the zoo is just the right size (smaller, not the size of say, The San Diego Zoo, or the Smithsonian), but you see an awful lot. I spent a day at The San Diego Zoo and saw more at this zoo. The animals were very lively, and there was a nice range. We visited on a warm Saturday... More

This was a nice zoo. It was well worth the detour. It was a perfect time to go a 09:00 on a Sunday; no crowds. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The had a baby orangutan that made her public debut while we were there. (Which is adorable). I was really impressed with all the steps the zoo has made to make the zoo... More

I really like zoos and go to pretty much every one we come across. This is a Zoo stuck half way between the old cage type zoos and the new large enclosure modern zoos/ Worth a look if you are in Salt Lake, because outside of skiing and outdoor stuff, there isn't a heck of a lot to do or... More
