The Wichita zoo is worth the trip. The tiger exhibit is very good - up close and personal. The gorilla exhibit is also exceptional.My favorite is the little otter exhibit. Only complaint is that we wish the Bald Eagle had a larger cage.

Coming from St.Louis, we have a free zoo, so I'm always more critical of zoos when I have to pay a fee. This zoo was fantastic and it was wonderful to see all the feedings and new babies!

We have been here before and the grandkids always enjoy going back. They can interact with some of the animals and enjoy that immensely.
