Interesting for those who know who Will Rogers was. Their visitors center was especially informative about him and the contributions that Spencer and Julie Penrose made to the community of Colorado Springs

This a very worthy site to visit when you attend the zoo. It is a nice hike and workout. The view is awesome and the historical pictures and history are very well presented.

Worth the trip

This is free to do with your paid zoo admission. It is definitely worth the trip. We climbed to the top of the shrine and what a view!

Included in zoo ticket

Included in admission for Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Was a short but beautiful drive up to a remarkable castle looking tower. Do yourself a favor and climb the top of the tower just for the view. Totally worth it if you plan on going to the zoo also

Included in the price of the Cheyenne Zoo admission

You can drive right up to the Shrine and climb the stairs to almost the top. Great view. Aside from the view, there were pictures of Will Rogers and a little history thrown in. Not very people were there, grounds were well-kept.

Disappointed

Disappointed, you can only see the shrine of the sun if you see the Zoo, which we were not interested to see.
We already visit different zoos in different states.

Study the history of Mr. Penrose's role in the history and evolution of Colorado Springs before you go. But if you don't, you'll still get the best view of the city from this height.
Awkwardly, you have to go to the Zoo, get in line, get your ticket and pay the Zoo price, then drive through the Zoo pedestrians to get onto the winding road to the top of Cheyenne Mountain. (If you just want to see the shrine, you still have to go through the process of attending the Zoo.)

Unique and Interesting
Aug 2019
If you are 60yrs or over, you will enjoy the memorial. There is a collection of photos and clippings on each flight of stairs as you walk up the 4-level shrine. A unique spot. Drive thru the Cheyenne Mtn Zoo, to the top of the hill. We visited there about 1 yr ago, arounf July, 2019.

When visiting the zoo be sure not to skip this activity. The chapel is beautiful. Also some of the best views.

Free with zoo admission

Enjoyed the view from the top. It is free with zoo admission. Only a 15 minute ride from the zoo. Only go if you attend the zoo.
