Cheyenne Mountain Zoo - Review
America’s exclusive and only mountain zoo that nurtures the largest Giraffe herds in the world, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is also home to plenty of diverse animals in around 200+ species. The huge alpine forests serve as a habitat to over 800 animals including monkeys, hippos, tigers, snow leopards and bears.
The encounter Africa exhibit within the zoo which serves as a new home to African elephants, lions, meerkats and the majestic black rhinoceros is worth visiting.
Hand-feeding Giraffes, riding an antique carousel and taking an adventurous ride of the Mountaineer sky ride and gear up for a Wild experience!

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Colorado Springs Reviews
We've been to a number of zoos, and some that claim you can get "close" to the animals. To me, this zoo is, by far, one of the best designed, and you really can get close to the animals. I love all the activities for kids - a carousel, chickens to feed, a play house for the goats, and feeding the budgies, to name a few. There are lots of opportunities to feed the animals or watch their trainings. It's also so cool that the wallabies just walk about freely, and you can pet them if they come close. There are also many outlook points at the zoo, which makes it neat for adults or out-of-town visitors, if you care to see the landscape more than the animals. The Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun is accessed through the zoo, which is also a interesting attraction and great overlook. If you are looking for something to entertain the kids and the adults, I recommend coming here!
Great place for kids and family. Summer is overcrowded with tourists, so i would say that end of September is the best for visiting. You need like 2 hours at least to see all animals, and probably you will spend most of it watching the monkeys. There are some restaurants and coffee shop if you want to take a break from animals and enjoy in beautiful view on Colorado Springs.Great animals,some of them are really rare to see. Monkeys are really fun as usual.😁 Tickets are not that expensive,and definitely worth the money comparing with some other zoos in USA.
This is an incredible zoo to visit. All animals looked healthy and well cared by staff. Abundant of chances to interact with animals as well . Visitors even get a chance to feed giraffes at a nominal fee. The views are magical, it's a high elevation zoo so carry lots of water, although there are water fountains at some places. Wear comfortable shoes make sure to carry some cash. Staff is extremely polite and well trained.
This zoo is a surprisingly larger size than what it seems and with a decent variety of animals it's good fun! The giraffe exhibit takes the Cake with about 8 giraffes that come up to you and that you can feed! The food was very tasty as well! Highly recommend!
The experience at this zoo is amazing. Knowing that your money goes to helping the environment and a better future, I would do it again. Yes it sucks to have wild animals caged, but this zoo has really gone its way to try to keep the animals in it’s natural environment. And they are rescued and simply can’t go back to the wild. Staff is also amazing, knowing there stuff and treating the animals with lots of care. the park is kept well clean. I would travel back again
