This zoo was very interactive. We fed the giraffes and also watched the gorillas being fed. Best reptile house I've ever seen! The zoo was clean and easy to navigate.

For the most part the zoo was just average: very nice natural habitats for the animals, but some of them so large we couldn't find the animals. The giant panda exhibit wasn't very big, but the pandas were an absolute delight, as there are only...More

Always a fun day! Especially in the summer! Two words: splash pad. So after you walk around and get hot the kiddos and cool off in the splash pad. Petting zoo area. Train ride. Merry-go-round. Plenty to do and see.

What i enjoyed most about Zoo Atlanta (besides the Animals) was the Landscape and the Grounds. It felt as if i was somewhere else- an "Urban Jungle" perhaps. It is the perfect way to spend a day with Family and Friends.

This zoo seems out of place in the middle of downtown Atlanta but it's got lots within its walls. The pandas are an obvious attraction and they had cubs not too long ago. Like the aquarium they have extras that you can do like mingling...More

Response from Shawn W | Property representative |
Yes, the animals are very active in the mornings. You'll see everything from animals stretching to feeding. You'll even hear our trio of lion brothers roaring in the morning! Parking is also great.

Is there any kind of pass/discount that lets you go two or three days in a row? Is there more than one voucher in the city pass? Or do you have to pay each day?

Response from Shawn W | Property representative |
The only offer we have for two or three day visits would be an annual membership; in which two visits pays for itself. We do offer military, college students, AAA, law and fire dept discounts as well.
Are the pandas only viewable through glass, or is there an outdoor portion of the exhibit, too? Also, is the exhibit very crowded with the baby pandas now?

The panda's were all behind the glass, I think they do that to protect The Panda's & The Public from each other, I was able to see them clearly & get great pictures.
