Cheyenne Mountain Zoo reviews
We go to many zoos each year, but this is one of our favorites. We recommend going up the ski lift to see the city, and I like to do it early as we take a lot of time in the zoo. The animal exhibit.... more »
A nice zoo. One little problem: The zoo has decided that visitors should be expert map readers, rather than having signs pointing to the general direction we might want to go. Making a wrong turn.... more »
This zoo is incredible. The environments for the animals were so cool. Lots of nature feel to everything. Don't really feel like you're at the zoo. Definitely worth the price to become a member. Can't wait to try the zoo after dark!! Will definitely be back. Oh and feeding Giraffes was a life changing experience!!
I wish I could give more than a 5 star review. This place was amazing and the best zoo my wife and I have ever been to. Great experience getting to feed the giraffes and an elephant. Love the conservation aspect and also enjoyed that it was built into a mountain. Beautiful view and lots of animals to see. Some of the zoo was closed for maintenance so we missed a few animals, but overall a wonderful experience. Prepare for lots of walking, but they do have scuttles and lots of sitting places.
