“Survival”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Though it was cold and we did not see many creatures, yet I appreciate the hard work and dedeication of many to maintain the zoo. The Dolphin show was very nice and educational. They have an excellent gift shop and it is worth visiting especially when it is fully operating.

“Happy animals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I dont know if zoos are all the humane..... I am an animal lover so seeing an animal in a cage can be disturbing . Having said that this zoo has very nice habitats for their animals they are large and clean and the animals all seem very healthy. I would have liked to have seen more zoo keepers walking around talking to people and answering questions. I like to think that is what people go to a zoo for......to learn. This is a good size zoo and we were there for a couple of hours. they were also doing work on several of the habitats so it was nice to know they are making improvements... Nice zoo

“Landscape needs alot of work.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This zoo is just average. The landscape around the zoo and inside needs alot of work. It just seems a little trashy at times. The zoo is ok other than that. Maintenance and landscaping is very noticable and would make your stroll around the park so much nicer. Takes work zoo but not that much money I would think for flowers and a few people to keep everything looking good.

“No Zoo Boo ever again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Vistied the Indianapolis Zoo Oct. 21st and it was the craziest thing we have ever done.
Took the two grandsons for trick or treating at the zoo. While dealing with traffic lined up for miles in each directions just to park we finally get into the zoo (not cheap) just to find out there were only five tables set up through out the zoo to recevie candy. This place was a mad house and couldn't even get close to seeing any animals. NEVER AGAIN!
