  • $40 bucks for 2 adults, kids under 3 free. Wednesday at about 11:00 and there was a line at the ticket counter. It was hot when we went so a lot of the animals were not out but they were nice displays and well maintained grounds. A lot of construction but that's usually the case at a big zoo. Outrageous prices for food and drinks - $4.79 for a bottle of smart water. Actually got a good deal on 2 fairly large stuffed toys.

  • This is a great place if you have a season pass. The zoo is tidy and the animals are usually out in the mornings. It's not as comparable to the San Diego Zoo, but its not bad if you just want to stroll and take the kids or a date on. If you can fork out the extra $60 to get a season pass it's more worth it than a single ticket. Plus they let members in a little early in order to avoid the rush. All in all it's decent, but go in the morning to see all the animals.

  • This zoo is awesome! My fiance and I are from Texas and we love this zoo better than ours at home. This place Is huge though, so if you have never been be prepared to walk. Lots of exhibits and the animals seem happily content. They have little feeding schedules that the public can watch and enjoy so be sure to check those out. The business hours we thought we odd.. the close earlier then other places in our opinion. So plan accordingly, we cant wait to go back next time.

  • The zoo has been doing some much needed upgrades/updates, and once those are done I'll probably be able to upgrade it to 5 stars. The Denver zoo does a good job of offering interactive education about the animals and conservation. They have a good variety of animals that are close enough to see. As a nursing mama, I also appreciated the "baby care" room in primate world. It was nice to have a private place to get out of the sun to feed my baby. A few complaints there were the door lock that didn't work, the chair that should probably be replaced, and no a/c or fan. Overall, we love to go to the zoo!

  • Probably would have liked this trip better if it hadn't been hot. There are quite a few neat animals. They landscaping is well done. Each of the restroom have handicap access. There is also a family restroom and many baby changing stations. Water from the fountains tasted alright but was not very cool. We weren't too impressed with the bears. I have seen zoos with better polar bear and penguin exhibits. In all its a nice zoo. Expect parking to be a hassle. But isn't it everwhere in Denver. We parked over by the rental boats at the city park and walked in. They have places to pick up a bite to eat all seemed to have reasonable prices.
