Kansas City Zoo Reviews & Ratings
Wow! Great zoo! Love all the different animals they have. Beautiful park. Well kept up. Love the variety of food options. Well spread out and not crowded. I needed a wheelchair but they did better, they have electric scooters. Look forward to going back.
Really enjoyed our time here. We love the free day entry for residents withing a certain jurisdiction. Saw the penguin march. It was a really hot day. The reason for a 4 star versus 5 is because it's a family place and when you have kids and you want to take a break from walking, you let them play on the playground which was really nice. The problem is it was scorching because there was no shade barrier or tarp over the playground and the slides were too hot for my LO to slide without burning her legs. I just thought when small parks can have them why not a zoo? I hope in the very near future this can be fixed. As much as I like walking around looking at the animals, my LO loves to play with others on the playground which I enjoy watching as well even more. If your going to provide a playground which is very smart and innovative, why not some sun protection so that it can actually be used. It was frustrating seeing all the kids who stood on the side because the equipment was too hot to play on. Other than that, very clean park and we had a blast!
My husband and I enjoyed the zoo. The unlimited ride band was awesome. I think we enjoyed the train and ski lift the most. The penguin, polar bear and sea lion exhibits were awesome. Have visited the sting ray exhibit before. Always think I'm going to get stung. Well come out and enjoy a day at the kc zoo. You wont be able to see the entire zoo in one day. Make it a weekend.
We liked how easily accessible the exhibits are. I would like if there was an easy way at the gate to see what exhibits may be closed to help better plan our route. If it was posted somewhere at the gate and I missed it oops!
Very nice zoo. The area of town it is in, is serene. The parking lot is big and not too far of a walk compared to other zoos I have been to. It wasn't too big that it was exhausting but not too small to where you felt like you didn't see any animals. Overall,this is a good zoo to visit.
