  • Love this zoo! My son fed the giraffes for the first time and loved it. I think that's gotta be there coolest exhibit I've ever seen in a zoo. It is really steep so count on getting a workout in walking up hill. The last time we were there we paid for the shuttle to the top and walked downhill-that's my recommendation. Often baby animals, educational talks are cool, always a few hands on experience like feeding the birds or petting animals they have out.

  • We took the kids to Boo at The Zoo and they had a wonderful time! It was busy but not packed. Parking wasn't bad. The kids got plenty of candy. All the decorations were great and very spooky! The haunted house was a bit scary for the younger kids, but still fun!

  • I honestly thought this would be a smaller zoo. I'm from Houston and we have a fairly good sized zoo so I thought nah I don't think it's much bigger. But they had so many animals. They even had some animals just out in the open. I was impressed at how much freedom compared to other zoos these animals. And it's fairly priced so that's another plus.

  • Love this beautiful mountain zoo. It’s a private zoo, so that means expensive...I wish there were more programs for low income kids...all kids deserve a zoo! But it’s a lovely zoo with well cared for animals and a great staff. Love all the special events, gorgeous views, and my favorite: feeding the giraffes. I know zoos have become controversial but this is a good one, and we love visiting.

  • We had our daughter's birthday party there, today. The pace was perfect! Easy for parents, kids had enough activities to stay engaged and entertained but enough free time to not lose their minds. Thank you, Lauren, for being an awesome mentor for the kids. Really a perfect afternoon for everyone!

      Now, if you are visiting on any day between October to November then the ticket prices are the same as the weekday ticket prices between March and September. The ticket prices between December and February on all days of the week are 12.75 USD per senior, 11.75 USD per military adult, 10.75 per child, and 7.75 USD per military child.
