Kansas City Zoo, Kansas City Reviews

  • We visited the KC Zoo over Thanksgiving break and we had such a great time! The weather was gorgeous as well. Our daughter loved walking around and seeing the animals. Surprisingly, most of the animals were out and active so we got good views! There was also a very entertaining bird show that we would highly recommend! Lots of fun learning about some of the birds they have. And the birds fly right over your head too! The sky lift over the Safari section was relaxing and a new experience for our daughter (which she loved as well). Would not mind visiting the zoo again!

  • The KC Zoo just improves every year! Depending on time of day and weather is going to effect your experience. The elephants are out early and like it cool. Cheetahs and Lions are active before lunch. The chimpanzees and gorillas are out and active lunchtime. Most kids six and under can only tolerate 3 hours. But you need 4 -5 to really see everything.

  • The zoo is easy to navigate. My group arrived near park opening at 9:30 and stayed almost until close at 4. We went on a cold day so some of the animals were not out, but it was not a problem because we got to see the majority. The two big shows, Birds of Wonder and Sea Lion Splash, were both entertaining and educational. The keepers were helpful answering questions about the park and the animals. Lots of fun!

  • Okay, I live right next to this zoo; I go to the zoo on my birthday... Every year and I LOVE the wild dogs although I would like a little more like one or two. Plus, the zoo is the most cheapest zoo I’ve ever been at but it’s WORTH your money... The employees are kind and helpful... Sadly, the polar bear paces back and forth which that means he needs a bigger enclosure than he does now.... I don’t see any other animals pacing back and forth in their enclosure so that’s AWESOME!!!

  • The free roaming kangaroos are definitely the coolest part of this otherwise average zoo. Layout was terrible so we ended up walking 9 miles (the same distance we walked at the much, much larger Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha). It's worth visiting if you're in the area, though! The docents were very friendly and knowledgeable, so definitely take advantage of any opportunities to listen during your visit.
