This zoo was amazing. Their exhibits get you up close to the animals and feeding the giraffes was a great experience. Its also a very beautiful zoo being situated right on Cheyenne Mountain. Be sure to do the sky lift and enjoy the views.

The setting alone is amazing. You travel up the mountain then down, but it is so gradual and you are so involved that you don't notice it. It would probably be hard on people in wheelchairs although there is a shuttle. The views, the landscaping...More

We went on a Friday and had a wonderful time. We all agreed that the zoo was clean and very unique (on a mountain). They have done a great job incorporating the mountain side location into the animal enclosures. This also makes for magnificent views...More

We loved this zoo! Beautiful setting and the enclosures are set up so you can see the animals so easily! We saw an elephant swimming and bears wrestling. Bring snacks because the food for sale is limited and expensive.
