  • Love love Love going!! It is clean, wonderful helpers, & so many exhibits to enjoy. Can't get enough. You can always grab a bite to eat from a nice variety of places throughout the zoo. It is a great place to relax & have fun!! All COS visitors should put this zoo on their list of places to visit for sure!

  • There are a lot of animals here. We paid for the trolley to ride to the top so that the kids would only have to walk downhill. The driver for the trolley was amazing. He explained where all the animals were and which way to go so we didn't pass any animals. I recommend taking a pen and pad of paper to write it all down. Such an amazing zoo and completely worth the price!

  • This zoo is absolutely amazing. We had such a great experience visiting here and it was the highlight of our trip. These people definitely care for their animals and hold their zoo to extremely high standards. We had read reviews before but it exceeded our expectations. The zoo might be a tough walk for some people but they have many accommodations for everyone to be able to enjoy it. We would give it more than five stars if we could.

  • Beautiful zoo, Beautiful views! Even after the snow this place was Great! We were missing some of the animals who were of course put up due to the cold but the ones we saw were Great! You could fees the giraffe's and learn a lot from the workers about the different animals. Good pricing. We are definitely planning on making a trip back in the spring/summer. I'm sure it will be a whole other world! Thank you for our trip!

  • There is not a zoo like Cheyenne anywhere in the country. Such passion and tender care for every animal. The staff are so knowledgable and passionate. The money you spend goes to wildlife conservation. They love their guests and have so many engaging experiences. Kids will love getting to be so close to the animals and riding the lift to the top of the mountain. Truly exceptional experience!
