About Los Angeles Zoo, Los Angeles

A prime attraction of the Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Zoo is a later addition to the Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Zoo, Los Angeles Reviews

  • Above all else, this zoo provides value. Our family loves to visit different zoos because it gives us something to do as a family, we get out of the house and we get to see animals with the kids. The Los Angeles Zoo isn't the most polished zoo you'll find, but offers value unlike we've seen anywhere else. tickets are fairly priced, the real treat was seeing the fair priced food and drink. $6 nachos, $6 beers, $8 burgers and plenty of other treats that you don't feel upset buying because of the markup. Best of all, the food quality is way above what we have had elsewhere. This in itself, made the trip fun and a little easier on us parents knowing we weren't blowing money on low-quality, high-priced food. Although he value is there, the zoo itself, left much to be desired. The grounds are clean and staff was friendly, but the layout is he worst we've seen in a zoo. So many little roads that get you turned around. There are all kinds of issues where you get lost trying to see all the exhibits because there are paths that lead to nowhere or multiple ways to the same location. We would love to see an easier flow pattern built into the zoo's layout as it caused us to pull out the map way more than we should have. Layout aside, the animal exhibits just aren't that impressive. My kid loves seeing animals, but due to the amount of time in between seeing exhibits and the quality of the exhibits, she spent half the time on her tablet. The zoo does have an awesome playground for the kids. All in all, it was fun and we walked away not feeling ripped off. I'm sure we would go back sooner or later, but if we do decide to go to the zoo, we will likely just plan a bigger trip to the San Diego Zoo.

  • I really loved the setting of this zoo. It is an absolute joy to walk around through here. However, I can't help feeling dismayed at the size of the enclosures for some of the animals. I know that there are many animal lovers out there that would like to see zoos outright banned. I personally feel that they have an important role, but that they must focus on always improving the quality of life of the animals. San Diego, for example, provides lots of room. The gibbons and the snow leopards struck me as the two most striking examples of small enclosures. The gibbons barely had room to jump around and the snow leopard's pool doesn't have the room for them to all play at once.

  • My experience here was ok. They have definitely renovated a lot and it is a good place to visit if you're in the area and don't want to spend Disneyland prices on a day out with the family. A lot of their staff members don't really seem too thrilled to help, although there were a few that were really bubbly and welcoming. The place was clean and somewhat easy to navigate. My only concern is how poorly fed and maintained some of the animals looked. Shouldn't more of the park's money go towards adequately keeping up with the nutrition and appearance of the animals, not just the park itself?

  • It's our first time to use the family membership card with one guest today . This review is for a Ticket Inspector at the Membership entrance on February 7, 2018, around 1:19pm. He is a white young man of medium height. Although I don't have his name, he is Very rude and mean. Just because I supposed that the membership card included a one time guest pass, but this man used a very rude way to let us know the difference between the family membership and the Family Deluxe membership. I rarely give reviews, but I don't want others to suffer the same. Next time, if your customer don't know your membership policy, please be nice to explain. After your patient explanations, your customer will Upgrade the Membership directly. But this young man made my guest Even want to go back to home. At last, we decided to buy one Senior ticket to end his loud voice. It was awfully discouraging.

  • I visited the zoo on a monday so it wasn't packed, I arrived at 1pm and left at 5. We were able to get through all the exhibits except The Lair. The layout of the zoo is a bit tricky because of all the path ways to choose from but the map was helpful. Food and drinks here are expensive so it's best to bring your own snacks. Overall I had a great time but some of the exhibits were closed and many of the animals I was most excited to see where asleep such as the tigers, lions, and the bear. The only thing that ruined my experience was the police officers that work for the zoo. At about 4:25 we went in The Lair exhibit, just to be clear there is no posted closing time at the door, some other exhibits did have an outer sign with their closing time in large font. Anyways, we were looking at the snakes which were behind a glass stacked up and some as low as the floor level so we were crouched down looking at them. Next thing we know a police officer is standing besides us demanding in a loud voice "Get up, Get up and get out", surprised and confused me and my husband responded "I'm sorry what?" and he responded "This place is closed already, I am going to lock the doors on this side so exit from the other door". His attitude was very rude. I guess because he was a police officer he felt there was no reason to be nice to us or at least have good service. A nice "hey, excuse me but it is closing time for this exhibit if you can please make your way out to the other exit would be great". Other than his rude attitude the day went pretty well, I had a great walk through the zoo.
