A special petting area allows children to touch, but not feed, the tamer animals. There's also the world's largest enclosed dolphin show and a roller-coaster for all ages to enjoy.

“Winter day at the zoo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

There were very few people and the animals loved the attention....it was so much better than I expected. No African animals because of the cold, but the dolphin show, desert house, and "big cats" were all available.

“Love this zoo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The Indy Zoo has a wide variety of animals in a clean and well laid out zoo. It is relatively flat, which is nice when pushing a stroller or little legs get tired. It seems like you walk more than you view animals in some zoos, but this one is very manageable and fairly compact, yet offers a lot to see.

Went for Christmas lights. I am a Chicagoan - you know Lincoln Park Zoo? I thought Indy was even better!

“Great Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is one of the cleanest zoos I have ever visited. It has a nice layout so you can easily maneuver your way around. The underground area under the dolphin tank is really cool. A must for families with kids visiting Indy.
