I love going to the zoo here. So much has been done and the improvements impressive; feed the giraffes, observe the bears with only glass as the barrier, and observe the city with great vantage points. I support my local zoo because it is important...More

Went to the zoo on a whim because it was a nice day and we needed something to do. Although the parking lot seemed full when we entered the zoo you didn't get that feeling at all. Everything is spread out and you're not constantly...More

My new favorite time to visit the zoo is winter! On a sunny day in February, this mountain zoo is a blast. The animals were very active & most were also vocal. I have a new appreciation for the phrase “spine tingling” - standing just...More

The highest altitude zoo in America is also a beautiful and very special zoo. Even if you do not have kids when you visit Colorado Springs, try to work this special zoo into your trip.

This zoo is far superior to the Denver zoo. There are more opportunities to interact with the animals. From the giraffe feeding near the entrance to the wallabies that are located just off the path. Yes, they also have the creepy bird cage where you...More

Thanks for your review, Tanya! We're glad you got to interact with the animals and form connections with them -- that's always our goal. It sounds like you also visited Budgie Buddies, a building in Australia Walkabout where guests can feed budgies and cockatiels in...More

Really enjoyed the layout of the zoo on the mountain. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be walking a lot, with incline and decline. Worth a visit!

I was here with my family in August of 2017. This zoo is amazing, wide variety of animals and the kids loved getting to see animals they normally don't see at our local zoo. The giraffe feeding is worth the extra money, kids absolutely loved...More

There are regular vehicles delivering the elderly to different parts of the zoo so I think you could take one of those. But otherwise it is a pleasant walk with a few lifts (elevator)at key points.

A total of 5 animals died. A vulture that is endangered and had been brought in to breed. A duck, a meerkat, a peacock, and another bird (forget which one)
