I went on a free admission day, so it was crowded, but not overly so. Things moved smoothly and it was always easy to get a "front-row" view of the animals. There was a very good variety, There were quite a few poisonous snakes, Komodo Dragons, Mongolian horses, a red panda, and so many others. Food seemed expensive so I... More

My wife and I went to the zoo on free admission day. It was busy as to be expected. The weather was beautiful and most of the animals we out. Despite the large crowds, we had a great time. This is the first time that we've been to the Denver zoo. We would go back.

The zoo was easily able to accommodate all the people there. We were able to see almost all the animals and take pictures of our favorites. The grounds were... More

It was a cold and blustery day and I would say that at least half of the animals were not outside to see. The folks at the entrance were not very helpful as to the way things were organized and where everything was. That said, I just turned right and wandered all through the zoo. It was amazing. This is... More
