  • Always a wonderful time at the zoo with family and friends. The snow leopard cubs and their mom were our favorite part of visiting this summer! We also enjoyed the new Asian Highlands outdoor exhibit where the animals can walk freely and on bridges over the crowded. The Asian lantern festival was a nice addition this year, we enjoyed the live performances. We wish there could be more food/drink options in parts of the zoo where there are none available. Otherwise, the zoo is usually clean with friendly workers on hand to help us during our visit. Thanks Cleveland Zoo!

  • I love the Cleveland Zoo. The new Asia Highlands is wonderful although I had hoped that it included more than 3 exhibits. I like the two new bear exhibits, Tiger Crossing is great, the Wolf exhibit was very active today and included two new "baby" beavers. All in all, a great time and a very good value, especially for veterans who get 50% off of the admission price for themselves and up to five additional tickets.

  • We have been here numerous times and it is always so pleasant. Most recently we went to the Asian lantern festival, which was definitely worth it. It is easy to navigate and they have wonderful exhibits with the animals. You can easily spend 2 to 4 hours here and be entertained. Worth a stop if you are in the area!

  • What an amazing place... Even though this a smaller zoo than I normally go to... This place kills it with decor and exhibits. I especially like the setup that they have in the snow leopard encloser along with the wolves and beavers. The fact that we we're able to get up close with the giraffes was incredible. We also we're there to attend the Asian lantern festival which was so pretty. Not only did they have all the silk lit displays they also had Asian inspired foods to offer. I can't wait to go back.

  • Gotta love the cleveland zoo. In my opinion the best zoo in Ohio. It is very well put together how you can walk around and see all the animals they are all kept in the right areas. My favorite area to always visit is up on the hill the primate an aquarium area I swear I could spend all day up there. I also extremely like the rain forest.
