It's a must see. My 9 year old simply loved it. Very nicely organized and the water park is definetly a winner.

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

There is much to see here. One day was barely enough just to see the zoo attractions, if you plan on doing rides and the water park you'll need more than one day. Some of the most enjoyable parts of the zoo are easily overlooked if you don't pay attention.

book the room with Granby Zoo tickets together, save money; take breakfast and the motel will save you more time.

“Not spectacular,”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

but a mid-range zoo, worth the drive and the visit. I found the zoo's strengths in the Oceania and South America sections. Allowing wallabies and kangaroos free range struck me as a win-win for humans and marsupials, alike. The jaguar enclosure, on the other hand, was cramped and the beast within looked hungry for the beasts staring in. The lions and tigers fared better, while the elephants in the Africa realm had plenty of room to wander. A highlight was the primates section in the South American section -- they really displayed personality and life.
