We went on a discount day and got in for half price. Lots of animals indoors which made it nice because it was so cold out. Had some good animal talks going on. Definitely worth a visit.

Took my niece there...Great Zoo, but where are the animals. Many exhibits were closed for maintenance and many animals were not available for viewing. Parking is a nightmare. This zoo is not realizing it's potential, so somewhat disappointing.

I went in the free day cause it was winter and not a lot of animals are outside in the cold... even for free, and kind of crowld, it was a great experience.

Took our son to this zoo. Unfortunately there was a lot of construction that impeded many exhibits. Maybe we can come back later this year and it’ll be better

Go here with our son and granddaughter when visiting them in Denver, and always variations in displays.. Dinosaurs, zoo lights in winter, and always something different in summer. Carousel,train and other fun things makes it always a great memory.

Went to the Zoo with extended family the afternoon before we flew home. It is very kid friendly and has numerous interactive attractions and demonstrations. The staff were very friendly and informative. Highly recommend if you have the chance to visit. Well worth the $15...More
