This zoo is so fun! Lots of shady areas, not too much walking in between exhibits. Gorgeous enclosed tropical forest to walk thru. Children's farm, indoor tiger exhibit and gorilla exhibit. Loads of interesting animals to see, boat rides, tram, nice restaurant/snack areas, or bring your picnic lunch and save money. This zoo is a must see while in Wichita!

This is a nice zoo. Lots of animals to see. They work hard at making it a better zoo all the time. Adding new animals. Special days like for Easter are lots of fun for kids.

Loved the Elephant exhibit. Would recommend to plan for 6 hours- if you want to see everything, or get a zoo pass if local and come back and see certain areas.

Who would have guessed that Wichita, Kansas would assemble a World Class Zoo? The San Diego Zoo has nothing on The Wichita Zoo. Plan to spend the Whole Day! Wear your comfortable shoes!!

In no way am I a zoo person; however, my 2 year old nephew was in town and he loves animals so I was happy to oblige. The price was affordable, it was big enough that the exhibits weren't super crowded on a beautiful Saturday morning, it was clean, and there were a TON of animals to see. The only... More

This is a gem in the midwest. We recently added a huge elephant exhibit that you just have to see. We also have a new baby gorilla which is adorable!! A must see if you are in Wichita!!!

We went here with one of our children and grandchild. It was a beautiful day. A lot of the animals were out except we didn't see any Tigers. We even got a small glimpse of the new baby gorilla. So cute. The new elephant area was nice too. I would highly recommend this zoo. You will not be disappointed.

Very nice little zoo! I've been to some really big zoos, San Diego and Sydney, so this was a little different. Also, we went after work so a lot of animals were sleeping or inside eating. They had orangutans, hippos, giraffes, birds, a jag, anteaters, elephants, rhinos and other little furry critters. The exhibits are small. Lots of parking!

When I have out of town guests we always go to the zoo. We have a membership even though our children are grown and married. Love just stopping in to see the gorillas with my grandson or another exhibit. It's well taken care of and has so many things to see. Well worthy the time and ticket price for anyone... More
