Syracuse Zoo, Syracuse Reviews
Very nice setup. Good animal selection. They had new baby red pandas for viewing when we went on the clinic. Kids liked the zoo. There are a few nice areas on the outer loop of the zoo where it was nice to sit and observe the animals patiently while enjoying some rain protection. Only drawbacks were that there were not very many zoo staff around. We wanted to find where the red pandas cubs were but couldn't find anyone for help. Also, while a brilliant display for sales, the gift shop had a see through display as you exit which can make it tough with tired toddlers.
Very inexpensive for admission - only $9 per adult and $5 per child. We visited the zoo during the Dinosaur takeover so it was a blast! During the dinosaur takeover there are very realistic dinosaurs placed throughout the zoo within the attractions and vegetation. They had realistic sound and movement so my son really enjoyed it! This zoo has a lot of animals and interesting facts at each habitat. We spent about 3 hours and were able to see everything so it was a great way to spend the afternoon. The gift shop is full of fun goodies.
We had a great time at the zoo! It was dinosaur time - they were awesome! Animals looked happy and healthy. Large habitats. Very pleased with overall cleanliness. Can't beat the price for a day of fun. Will definately go again. Missed the lions though - not out in viewing area.
We took our two kids in the afternoon and had a good time. The zoo is smaller, so it was easily walkable by younger kids. It looks like they're doing work on some outside exhibits, so there were some empty sections. The elephants were active and a highlight. We watched them for a while. We also saw a cool octopus, penguins, red pandas, armadillos, a variety of monkeys, apes, and lemurs. For small zoo, they had a good selection of animals. They had animatronic dinosaurs throughout the zoo, but that's only there a few more days.
Overall a nice zoo. Not as many animals as some other ones I've been to but it's understandable because of the crazy temperatures Syracuse can have. Animals were happy and lively. Sad to hear about their last lion passing away. Zoo was clean and very easy to navigate through and plenty of things to do for the little kiddos. Lots of information given along the way as well.
