The cost of admission is RIDICULOUS!!!! You barely see any ANIMALS. Lots of walking. The enclosures are outdated!

First, the negative: dark overly lush growth around the cages makes for a 'dark' viewing. The cages are squeezed together. The positives are manifold: great sightings, clearly contented animals without stress like many zoos, easy walk paths, happy crowds, low noise level. Terrific varieties of birds. Great domestic animal area as well. All animals seemed well cared-for. For a small... More

The giraffe was great to feed...just as fun for an adult as for the kids. All the animals seemed comfortable considering the heat. The aquariums were very interesting and... More

This place has it all. Lions, tigers (even white ones), Bears, aviary, and an awesome aquarium with interactive petting/ touching throughout. Pet a stingray, feed a zebra and a goat among other animals all in one place. Staff was friendly. They took as many measures as possible to shade walkways but its still a good idea to wear sunscreen. The... More

Love going here to feed the stingrays and some of the birds. And of course the giraffes. So many attractions and something for everyone and every age. They have a mini roller coaster, log ride, boat ride, sky ride and train ride. And planned animal shows. Plan on spending the ENTIRE day here. Wear good shoes, pack plenty of food... More

I loved all of the great rides and interactive animal experiences. Good prices too. The Phoenix Zoo was dirty and had poor exhibits.

This zoo has really grown. Their exhibits have always been animal friendly and yet provides spectators the opportunity to appreciate these marvelous inhabitants

The zoo and aquarium is so interactive with the animals. You can feed giraffes and pet sting rays and have birds eat apples from your hand. It was a bit expensive, but the memories are so worth it. We did go in July, so it was super hot. We ended up walking around for a bit and then went inside... More

We had a good time despite the 110° heat. Apparently this is the slowest time of the year according to one of the ride operators due to the heat. It really was like we had the place to ourselves. There are so many animals to see throughout this huge zoo. I didn't expect the variety or the size. There are... More

This is a wonderful zoo with a wide variety of animals. I took my 2 Grandchildren in July, one of the hottest months in Arizona, which had it's pros and cons. The pro is that there are few guests roaming the zoo, the con, of course is that it's HOT out there. We purchased snow cones and drank lots of... More
