Colorado Springs is home to America’s ONLY mountain zoo. Located at 6,800 feet above sea level, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo offers breathtaking views of the city and of its 750 animals. The unique design of the Zoo’s animal exhibits gets guests closer than ever before. Hand-feed one of the largest reticulated giraffe herds in the world, watch grizzlies swim with trout, hop next to red-necked wallabies and get hands on with some of the Zoo’s smaller residents in The Loft. Have a WILD adventure at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – see the animals, ride an antique carousel, eat a gourmet lunch at the Grizzly Grill and ride the Mountaineer Sky Ride to the Zoo’s summit. Visit 365 days a year for family fun at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

Really nice zoo. All the different animals and some I have never heard of. Lots of walking but it's a zoo. They do have driver provided golf cart tours for $2. Not a bad deal. This zoo is very clean and well maintained.

The giraffe's never disappoint. We come to the zoo two or three times a year and always have to feed these goofy creatures.

The mountain side location provides an interesting layout. Cool animals and beautiful views. Try the sky ride. A fun outing.

This zoo is really fun. We went right as it opened at 9 AM, which is probably advisable, as so many animals were active. Feeding the giraffes was far more fun than I could even imagine, and there were lots of other surprising interactive experiences...More
