We drove from Scottsdale, an easy 45 minutes. The park is huge, we walked for about 3 hours, and really did not see the whole place. The grounds are very clean, the bathrooms were immaculate, the staff was very nice. It seemed pretty empty, but maybe this time of year people are busy with other things. Some of the eateries...

Six years since we had been here with our young grandchildren. Really surprised and pleased with the growth and improvments. We had an adult grandchild with us this time and she really enjoyed herself. The entrance fees hit you a bit hard and you pay for all the extras, but at the end of the day it's well worth it....

This was a fun day. This zoo is big, and there is a lot of room for the animals and people walking around. I would like to start by telling everyone that you must use cash at every station whether it be to eat or do the other rides everything in the park takes cash only. They do offer ATM's... More

Great day with the kids. They enjoyed every bit of it. Spent about 5hrs there and could have stayed longer. The animals look like they're happy and healthy and some interaction with them, mostly the monkeys. To see so many babies there was great too... will deffinatly go again.

The zoo has become my home away from home. My family has had passes the past two years now, we try to spend as much time there as we can in the cooler months. The zoo is HUGE and I love the way it is set up you can see a lot more of the animals close up compared to... More

We love the zoo and decided to become members. For $125 a year per adult you can visit anytime you want and never feel rushed. We had been looking for a place to walk and this is it! Weekly walks about 4 miles each time and that is not even seeing the whole zoo! Great exhibits and such a variety... More

We used Groupon for our admissions and saved a good penny doing so. Get there early when the animals are still having brekkie and the crowds are a little lighter. Now that the weather has finally settled down a bit, you have a few more hours of animal viewing time before they retreat to the shadows. Our favorite is the... More

It cost my dad, myself and two kids $94 to enter the zoo and that was with a coupon. It had been four years since we've been here and they seemed to triple in size. So I think we got our moneys worth. It took us four hours and we still didn't see everything. Not much shade unless you go... More
