The day I visited was extremely cold (35-40 degrees) so many of the animals were not in habitat. However the animals I managed to see were nice. The pandas were probably the favorite followed by the bald eagle. I am sure the zoo is nice...More

Thank you so much, Gayla, for visiting Zoo Atlanta. If you plan more than one time, you are correct a membership is the answer. It gives you access to events that are only for members. Thanks again.

I would give it at least 2 1/2-3 hours. You don't want to miss anything. Not sure about the scooter, but I'm sure the zoo could tell you. Hope this helps.
