Living in Omaha (and not particularly WANTING to live here, lol), I get to see Henry Doorly a lot. That is a good thing. This zoo is just awesome. I have a full season pass and visit it often with the family. They are always doing something new to the place, and its always a clean zoo. If you ever come to Omaha - GET to the zoo. It is a must do on everyone's list when coming here. It's always ranked in the top 10ish zoos in America, and with some more new expansion on the horizon....it's bound to leap up to top five or better again. The Leid Jungle - is/was the largest indoor jungle in the World at one point. The Desert Dome, was the same (largest of it's kind), and the aviary as well. Simple a GREAT place to visit...so come see us here in the heartland and see our zoo. You'll enjoy it, for sure.

We had a great time at this Zoo. Go early and you get to see more of the animals moving and waking up. Lots to see and do, plenty of walking but set up very nicely. Extra charges for the Tram, Trolly and Train rides. Get a flier at your hotel to save $1 off admission. Plan on a full day to see it all!

The Omaha Zoo was a great destination for a weekend getaway. We loved the variety of animals and that many animals had multiple viewing areas. We went to the IMAX theatre and saw a film on Lewis and Clark which was great. The skfari was open since the weather was nice and we enjoyed a trip riding over some of the animals. My only complaint was the food. The only item we purchased was a soft pretzel and it was tiny for the price.

They get a 5 for not only having a good variety of animals, but for their service. My husband got a migraine after we'd only been there a few hours. The infirmary gave him some ibuprofen and got a security guard to give us a ride to our car. They even signed our passes so we could come back the next day without paying again. Outstanding service during his migraine!

There are some great things going on at the Zoo and while parking seems to be smaller the zoo has made great changes on the inside

Exhibits are great. A lot of walking much of it hilly. A good bit of exercise if that is acceptable.
