I took the kids to the zoo for the first time since we moved back to Cleveland and it was as good as I remember. I haven't been to a lot of zoos, but this is by far the best that I've seen. The primate...More

In reference, we've been to the Buffalo and toronto zoo. This zoo was good but it was way too crowded for a Monday. I guess it was free for those county residents but there were also large bus groups, camps and those free county residents....More

I took a small group of students to the zoo to do some photography and I must say it was disappointing. This was June 17th, summer vacation, but much of the zoo seemed either under construction or under-populated with animals. It has been awhile since...More

After visiting multiple zoos id say this is a very generic zoo but the price is good and there is usually lots to see. The animals aren't so active but they are there. If you go on a good day you can see them playing...More

I love going here with my son. They have so many awesome animals. The trams take you up to the top of the hill or there is a ramp you can walk up to get there. The elephants are awesome.

If this was a scavenger hunt for zoo animals, I lost. I brought my five year old boy to this zoo for the first time and having great experiences during past exhibits, we were really let down. Don't get me wrong, I understand that during...More

This is a pretty large zoo, but I found myself disappointed with the enclosures. In the indoor enclosures an effort was made to make things look like trees and rocks, but then there were plastic tubs and buckets and cement floors. It just looked cheap....More

The price for an all inclusive ticket is $23.50. This includes admission to the zoo AND rainforest, rides on the train in the Australian exhibit, the 4-D movies and a zoo key with a lanyard. Hope this helps.

It doesn't go all the way around the zoo, but it does take to you to the cats & primates. There is an extra charge for the train. When I went no one checked our tickets.
