“Confusing Layout, but loved our visit”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We took our granddaughter to HollZOOeen event and she had the time of her life. The park staff was so friendly and went out of there way for the children. The hogwarts train ride was her favorite. It was an overall great family experience

“The Homeschool Programs are "animalicious"”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

My son is 5. We home school with 2 of our friends. Once a month we take them to the zoo for a homeschooling class. They are so fun. The children stay an hour. There is a new topic each month. They get to see animals and sometimes touch them. Each lesson includes some hands on activities and "field trips" around the zoo as my son calls them. They also get to do a craft to take home. How FUN!

“Zoo passes”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We are grandparents and purchased zoo passes and free parking for ourselves and the grandchildren. We have gone several times, sometimes for an hour or two. Every time we go we enjoy a different active animal and the gardens have been beautiful, especially the tulip display in the spring. The grand kids enjoyed Hallzooween and the Festival of Lights was very pretty. Walking the zoo is also good exercise too. We will definitely renew our passes.

“Great Zoo!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I really enjoyed my first visit to the Cincy Zoo. I honestly didn't know what to expect but was delightfully surprised. There were so many animals to see and most of them were out when we went (even though it was a dreary sort of day). The layout of the zoo is perfect and it's a very well kept and clean environment!

“Great visit !”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Loved visit especially after going to Creation Museum the day before. Didn't allow enough time for everything at the zoo, definitely a full day if you haven't been before.
