Owner description: Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is America's ONLY mountain zoo. Large alpine habitats are home to over 950 different animals and approximately 180 species. All of your favorites are here - monkeys, hippos, tigers, elephants and bears (oh my!). Hand-feed their large reticulated giraffe herd, and experience animals up-close, like never before.

“This zoo is AMAZING!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We have never experienced a zoo like this before. Great hands on activities! It is not only a great zoo for children but adults too. There are quite a few hills to climb so I suggest strollers for the little ones.

What a Great Zoo it's beautiful,worth the trip, and the entrance fee. They offer entrance discounts, example seniors and military.
Don't forget to feed the giraffes they put their heads on your shoulder while nibbling on the lettuce so cool.
Enjoy.

“Amazing zoo!!!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

This is by far the best zoo I have ever been to! I have been going here since I was little and the renovations they continue to do only make it better! I love how you can get really close to the animals!

“Great ZOO”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

You will get some exercise walking this zoo. Enjoyable for sure, the giraffe area is fun for kids. they do a great job of interaction with the animals. The primate area is however a bit depressing as they do not seem to be happy but that is understandable as I would not be overly happy being caged in.

Incredible that a full zoo is right there in the mountains. The staff was very informative and it's an easy walk around the zoo. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks!
