Our four-year-old gave it her seal of approval. You won't be disappointed. Decent exhibits, easy to navigate with kids.

“Great place for kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

My daughter enjoys bringing her little ones to the zoo many times in the summer. It is a great place to let them see nature and the elephant exhibit is most impressive!

“Family favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile


The updates are well done. They have an elephant crossing, and a viewing window that allows you to get very close. My child was in awe of the size. The rainforest feels like you are right in the forest. There is an exhibit that storms to teach about the ecosystem. There is so much to see! When we visited the rainbow babies and uhmp were sponsoring a teddy bear event, the kids got in free and nurses were on hand for teddybear treatments. they even have a mcdonalds! No super expensive disgusting snack stand food or lugging a cooler all over avoiding the crowds, and the kids are still happy. We will definitely be returning and may even be considering a membership.

“Good Family Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Always a fan of the Cleveland zoo. Their new elephant exhibit is great. We go all year round because they run their tram to the various sections. So in the winter we always visit the polar bears without having to walk.

“Pretty cool, glad I went”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Went to the zoo on a very hot day. Loved the air conditioned buildings and the fact there were trams that could give you a ride.

The animals were absolutely amazing. The place seemed really clean. Of course the monkeys were lots of fun. I was disappointed the Tiger was asleep, and I only seen the elephant off in the distance. The beers were fun, and the giraffes just amazing to see! Very glad I went!
