Took my children to the zoo I grew up visiting. I absolutely loved that parking is free. Also loved that my home zoo is in the reciprocity program and allowed me 1/2 off admission for up to 4 people. The exhibits were spread out nicely....More

The Cleveland zoo is fun for all ages. A variety of animals. Go early to see some of the animals that are active then. Going around 11 most of the bears and wolves are napping. The tiger exhibit is neat to walk through.

The exhibits are really nice. The elephant crossing was cool. My wife got one thing off her bucket list, riding a camel. Giraffes and ostrich exhibit is very interesting. Food options are great. The only problem with the park, it's way too spaced out. Some...More

The price for an all inclusive ticket is $23.50. This includes admission to the zoo AND rainforest, rides on the train in the Australian exhibit, the 4-D movies and a zoo key with a lanyard. Hope this helps.

It doesn't go all the way around the zoo, but it does take to you to the cats & primates. There is an extra charge for the train. When I went no one checked our tickets.
