“Perfect!”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

My wife and I got married in the dolphin pavilion back in 2009 and loved it. We also come here every year for our company party! My wife and I went in August because it had been awhile since we had been. The new exhibits are excellent, the zoo is clean, and the staff really cares!

“Nice zoo”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

This is a good zoo for a big city. It is not my favorite, but it has several good features. See the dolphin show if yu get the chance. I also like the polar bear observation area, it has a glass that lets you see the bears closer then you could in the wild. The zoo has several different exihbits of animals. It is a good place to take the kids on a family trip to Indianapolis.

“Nice zoo”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

We have been a few times to the Indy Zoo. There is not much activity with the animals. Some are so far away you can't see them. The water area/splash pad is nice for the kids to cool down. We have always enjoyed ourselves at the zoo, but pretty much just feel like you are walking around looking at whatever. The dolphin shows book quick so get there early if you want tickets. One visit, we ate at the cafe there. I'm the only one that got a hot dog, and luckily no one else in our family got one because I became so sick. I contacted the zoo by email about it with no response. I think that hot dog must have been left out from the day before!
