“Great Children's Zoo - Must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

We have had a yearly pass for the last 4 years - and go at least 2-3 times a month. The kids (ages 4&5) love it and are never bored. Food options are just OK, so we usually pack a lunch and bring it in the zoo. Ride passes are a must! Great to visit during the week when it is not so busy!

This zoo is great for all ages. Lots of up close and personal exhibits. The sky ride is a must! Great view of the African area. Be sure to feed the giraffes. Love them.

We had a nice experience at the a Fort Wayne Zoo. There's something for all age ranges. The rides are a little on the costly side, but the kids loved all of them....so how can you say no
