“Fruit Bats”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Sounds weird but the best part of the whole zoo is the fruit bats. They fly around in the rain forest exhibit and they act a lot like monkeys. Lots of other cool exhibits too.

“Great Zoo just Good Family Fun!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This zoo has a great reputation. The exhibits are entertaining and that the whole family will enjoy. We visit at least once a year and I especially enjoy feeding the giraffes. Make sure to bring your camera. I've been to plenty of Big City Zoos and they really are not as nice as this. Enjoy!

“Great Zoo”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

No complaints. It was a terrific day... Recommended to all. If you bring your own cup, you can refill it for a buck.. VS paying 3-5 for their cup...

“A pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Great zoo that is very easy to navigate. Definitely on par with some of the larger city zoos in the Midwest. Our two little kids (ages 2.5 and 15 months) saw a lot of animals and really enjoyed the penguin exhibit, rainforest, gorilla, and the monkey/chimpanzees. Children's Farm is very nice too. Admission is a tad bit pricey but I can accept that as long as they keep the zoo well maintained (which it is).

“Family outing”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Wichita has one of the best zoos ever. I've been to it many times and it's always growing and getting better. Don't know why I was ever scared of it being built near our family home.
