Animals are on the move like never before at Philadelphia Zoo with Zoo360, a first-in-the-world system of trails passing through treetops, crossing over pathways & connecting habitats, giving animals like amazing big cats, majestic primates...more

We went the first day of the "winter season," so prices were lower than they are in the spring and summer. It was a nice thing to do in the middle of the day. Not a lot of people strolling about. Almost all of the...More
We happened to go in October on a Saturday, a special “boo” day and it was fun to see all the children and many adults in costumes. However the crowds and noise were distracting from the animal viewing and it all seemed very crowded and...More
We loved this zoo! Much more to it than we expected. Loved how the animals can walk around on the cat walks above you so you can actually see them out and about. A very wide variety of animals and they where all awake and...More
This is a great zoo. I get the family membership about every other year. The food has gotten a lot better since i was last there. The animal variety is great. It is very clean and super walkable. It is large enough to feel big,...More

The zoo is very cute and well delayed out. I recommend going during the day rather than evening as many of the animals go to bed once it gets dark during certain special events like the Summer Ale Festival.
We went to the zoo to spend the day together and see the animals. ( I love the Zoo) We were very disappointed. The cost to start with is Over priced, $24.95 pp and $16 for parking. No elephants in the zoo. Per a report...More
The Philadelphia Zoo did not have a vibrancy about it.
My toddler enjoyed the in-door area for little kids. He also seemed a little interested in the goats in their petting zoo area (though was also hilariously scared by some of the more unusual goats,...More
