“San Diego Zoo and Sea Combined into one Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

You have walk through the underwater tunnel during the dolphin show. It is amazing see the dolphins swim as the shoot upwards towards the surface. The lions are also very active and roaring.

“Small but great!”

This zoo is small in size, but great in quality. Dolphin show is included in the price. Its a very good zoo for small children. Very clean, and freindly staff.

“Great experience for the grandkids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Indy's Zoo give a great variety of animals in near-natural environments to enjoy at your own pace. We recommend membership so you can visit multiple times per year. A very good value for anyone within an hour's drive of Indy.

“Late season? Pass.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We went on a gorgeous day in mid-November. A number of the animal exhibits and attractions are shut down that time of year - not unexpectedly, I suppose. Nice, clean zoo. 20-minute free dolphin show was satisfactory, but if you've been to a Sea World or similar show within the past few years, don't feel bad about skipping this one. Overall, OK, but once you've been to the likes of even the Cincinnati Zoo, you might want to take in a movie instead of the Indy Zoo.
