Denver Zoo, Denver Reviews - Write a Review

  • I really and truly enjoyed the zoo. It would be nice because of my age and because I have diabetes, if there was a Rascal or some sort of scooter to ride. My feet wouldn't have been affected as badly as they were. By the time the end of the day rolled around I couldn't hardly even walk because the pain was so bad. Other than that I truly enjoyed the zoo very very much it's a wonderful place and I really enjoyed the day thank you.

  • Zoo lights is a fantasy adventure. All the trees and bushes and anything else they could put lights on was decorated! If you buy the 3D glasses then you can see stars or penguins around the lights. And there are several led animal scenes. Loved the train ride. We had a wonderful time!

  • Love, love, love this zoo! Animals are well taken care of, and the staff is always pleasant! I love being able to watch the animals interact with the enrichment in their habitats or the various cool features a lot of them have (ex: elephant bridge and pool, various levels and food enrichment in apes). The keepers are very knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions! Very glad my fiance and I have a membership now!

  • Denver Zoo is a vast place with lots of animals to see. A wide range from primates to birds and everything else. A little easy to get lost, so make sure you take a map. They also offer free admission days, which is pretty cool. It can be pretty difficult to find a parking space on those free days, but its certainly worth the trip!

  • This is an excellent zoo. It's always been clean. They have a large amount of varied animal life. The staff is friendly and they have good programs. Good parking, but it does get pretty crowded on big days like the free days. Food and drinks are pricy, but they allow you to bring in food. It's in a good location, too, because there are other fun places close by.
