This zoo is simply incredible. The animals are all very well taken care of and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The Behind The Scenes offerings are incredible deals that should be a focal point around your visit if possible. We were able to schedule the tortoise experience for $20 on top of the price of admission. We actually got to PET a Galapagos Tortoise (from the Galapagos 80+ years ago)! This is not an experience you could ever have otherwise (even if you went to Ecuador). The Reptile exhibit alone is quite impressive. If reptiles aren't your thing, don't worry. All of the exhibits are really great. You can pet goats, feed beautiful exotic birds, whatch tigers follow you around the park in this elaborate, caged walkway system, etc. This is a great family experience for anyone. Be sure to plan a whole day there. You could walk through it quite quickly but sometimes the animals are hiding away so you'll have to return an hour or so later to see them.
I was visiting my brother (we're originally not from PE) and he suggested that I should bring his kids to this zoo to spend the day and hang out, to bond. They've been here a couple of times already and always love it. I love it. I love that they love the animals. We had a great time.
WOW! The Zoo is beautiful. I visited with my two grandsons ages 8 and 6 on a perfect fall Saturday. I had not been to the Zoo since my children were young. It is amazing what they have done to transform the animal habitats. In fact the entire Zoo is beautifully laid out. It was "Boo at the Zoo" weekend and so it was super crowded. They had trick or treat giveaway stations throughout the Zoo where the little ones could get a treat. Kids of all ages were in costumes and that was so much fun to see. My 8-year old grandson spent several minutes face to face with a baby gorilla. The gorilla of course was in his glass-enclosed room. But they seemed to be interacting. It was touching to watch.
I always loved this zoo. I went here as a child and as a Adult. I love the tigers and lions. I loved the petting part of the zoo. I loved petting the horses, eagles, turtles, sheep's. I loved also seeing the giraffe's, hippos, and wolf's. I liked walking around the zoo, seeing the different types of animals. The gift shop's are expensive but reasonably, So is the food and drinks that they have their. The Philadelphia Zoo is a great place to visit.
Love this zoo and it's fairly large! I took someone from out of town because of it being the 1st zoo. It was a cold November day and it wasn't crowded which was so lovely for someone from California to visit! We were able to quickly get through the zoo. The otters are the best and lots of the animals were awake and playing which made it a good visit
