Don't go too early in the year. We weren't able to see many animals cause of the cold weather. Later in the year will be crowded, but you will be able to see the animals you want. The zoo is great, but not excellent.

I must say the aviaries were my favorite exhibits at this zoo, particularly the savannah aviary...those weaver birds were fascinating and the colors of all the birds were amazing! Thanks for such a lovely day!

Spent a few days in Seattle with our 5 year old Grandson. We loved the zoo so many different animals.

After visiting Seattle we decided to spend the afternoon in the zoo. It was a great decision, because the zoo is great, nice and a lots of animals to see.

Having seen San Diego Zoo in past, this zoo is small but yet offers a good variety to see and hang out in Seattle Area.

Lots to see here. We only had a few hours to visit, and ended up wishing we'd allowed more time. There were some surprises too. I haven't seen Komodo Dragons at a US zoo before.

We have been to many zoos and this is our favorite zoo! The animals all seem happy! I love how everything looks so natural and not just in cages! We have went here a few times and it is always great.

When I suggested going to the zoo to the other 3 adults in the family, there was no enthusiasm. However, without any other suggestion on the table, we went first thing on a Sunday morning and stayed four hours. That is quite astounding for some...More

I am interested in the tour to meet the Giraffes. I understand that it is in groups of no more then 5 people. Are these private group tours or do they just take 5 people at a time? I also read that it is $650 per tour. I am coming by myself, so would I have to pay $650?
