We visited in early January so not the best of weather or timing but found ourselves in the area. It would have been nice if the website accurately told the extent of things that were closed; large portions were completely closed for the season and the website did not indicate this. Overall though my daughters had a great time for the exhibits we did see. I would definitely come back in the summer time when everything is open. What we did see was good though and it was obvious this would be a good day-long experience in the summer!

Came here with my wife and two sons (ages 4 and 7). It is a beautiful zoo. We did know that we were going in the off season of a zoo, but believe your website should show better what is actually open during the offseason. Either that or hand out maps when we get there that have what is open circled on it. We aimlessly circled the property (over 10,000 steps worth on the ol FitBit) with two young ones filled with excitement as they ran station to station of empty ponds, trees, cages, and an entire Plains area. I still give the 4 stars though because it is truly a neat zoo

Mostly great zoo. The new Tembo Camp with the elephants was really cool, they show you how they get the elephant to kneel and pick up its feet and move around so the vets can make sure they're ok, and then you get to walk up and pet one which was neat. Aquarium/deserts/orangutans had short lines to get in, but wasn't too bad. Animals were very active. I do wish they'd expand the lion exhibit, I know they had to separate the male and female lions after the incident a few years ago, but it means that someone is always stuck in the tiny enclosure on the side while the others get to wander in the big part. Skip the dolphin show, it's free, but the majority of it is watching videos of a Karen from Carmel telling you about recycling and showing her shopping at Whole Foods, with only a few minutes of actually getting to see the dolphins do stuff. Back in the 90s when we went as kids, the entire show was the dolphins doing stuff and the trainers explaining how much they eat, how big they are, etc. The new show means you'll know just as much about dolphins after the show as you did before.

We try to visit Zoos in our travels and found this to be an excellent zoo. Highly recommend the visit. We ran out of time to go to the Botanical. Will go again if ever in Indy again.

Took 2 teens and a 3 year old yesterday. You have to make reservations in advance. We booked the 11:30-12:00 arrival. You can stay as long as you want.... which is the main problem. No dolphin tickets left for the rest of the day by 11:30. Lines for inside exhibits were incredibly long (line for the aquarium was so long it would have taken hours to get in) (line for butterfly garden was so long it stretched out the front door of the entrance at 3:00 pm). So we actually had to skip the dolphins, the butterflies, the aquarium, the walrus (also long line). We did wait in line for the orangutans but they let our group of 5 in with a group of 11 so the kids in the group of 11 plowed over our kids who had been patiently waiting to see the orangutan up close. Basically, everyone that had the early morning tickets was still there.... so it was very very crowded. Likely at 60-70% capacity. I’m okay with well managed lines. We do Disney, we do universal, we do local amusement parks. But if you’re going to have lines, you have to have someone managing lines. Attendants regulating the space between groups is needed during covid. Hand sanitizing stations - also needed. We saw 1. ALL OVER THE ZOO SOCIAL DISTANCING WAS NOT OCCURRING AND MASKS WERE NOT WORN OR WERE BEING WORN INCORRECTLY (the masks not covering the nose). Only 1 zoo worker asked people to put their masks on properly. It was so bad I’m kind of surprised the zoo hasn’t been shut down. So if you go, get in the very first group of tickets because it’s the only way to get dolphin tickets and do the aquarium first, butterflies second or you’ll never be able to do them. Kids left disappointed and really so did I. We’ve been so many times and had a great time but the Covid and covid nonbelievers and the lack of enforcement of covid rules to keep us all safe and secure and the lack of line management and time management have ruined the zoo right now.
