I've been several times. The animals are well cared for, enclosures are clean and appropriately sized. There is good information posted and it's easy to get around in. The otter exhibit is great!

Jim, Thank you for visiting. How fortunate you grew up going to the San Diego Zoo! Please be aware the hippo sisters are only at DPZ while their new exhibit at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is under construction. The girls are Cheyenne's and when they needed a place to stay during construction, Cheyenne reached out to us. We are very aware the exhibit is not the best for hippos, nor do we have the funds for such an exhibit. When the girls are able to return to their new exhibit, we will be changing the exhibit. It won't be more hippos.
