Colorado Springs is home to America’s ONLY mountain zoo. Located at 6,800 feet above sea level, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo offers breathtaking views of the city and of its 750 animals. The unique design of the Zoo’s animal exhibits gets guests closer than ever before. Hand-feed one of the largest reticulated giraffe herds in the world, watch grizzlies swim with trout, hop next to red-necked wallabies and get hands on with some of the Zoo’s smaller residents in The Loft. Have a WILD adventure at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – see the animals, ride an antique carousel, eat a gourmet lunch at the Grizzly Grill and ride the Mountaineer Sky Ride to the Zoo’s summit. Visit 365 days a year for family fun at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

Great time at the zoo. Clean well organized. Make sure to go on a day when it is warm. Not many animals out in the cold and wind. Great day trip though.

This zoo, one of the top five in the US, is built on a mountainside. Exceptional animals, and an extensive giraffe enclosure.

There are so many attractions that you get up close and personal with the animals. It's also quite the work out. Beautiful grounds and the employees were nice. Food is really expensive.

sometimes there are only a few exhibits open. At times you can see big cats, bears, hippos, elephants and giraffes but not always.
