Attraction details
Owner description: Colorado Springs is home to America’s ONLY mountain zoo. Located at 6,800 feet above sea level, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo offers breathtaking views of the city and of its 750 animals. The unique design of the Zoo’s animal exhibits gets guests closer than ever before. Hand-feed one of the largest reticulated giraffe herds in the world, watch grizzlies swim with trout, hop next to red-necked wallabies and get hands on with some of the Zoo’s smaller residents in The Loft. Have a WILD adventure at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – see the animals, ride an antique carousel, eat a gourmet lunch at the Grizzly Grill and ride the Mountaineer Sky Ride to the Zoo’s summit. Visit 365 days a year for family fun at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

“Wonderful Zoo”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

This zoo is unique in that it is built into the mountain, thus there are a lot of hills to climb. The Giraffe exhibit is extraordinary and the zoo has a great selection of animals. Most are in large enclosures.

“Awesome Zoo”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Feeding Giraffes by hand? Watching Hippos wallow in the water? Baby Gorillas? This place has it all, what a treasure. Easily accessible, I love this place!

“Loved the giraffe exhibit!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

It's small - only takes a couple hours to go through - and there are a lot of hills. I really enjoyed being face to face with the giraffes and feeding them lettuce leaves! The wallaby exhibit is fun, too, because they roam free and you can pet them.
