The Denver Zoo is amazing and so much fun. This is a huge zoo. We love the monkeys in the trees! This is a world class zoo with so much to see so plan on getting there early. They have decent food and nice areas to have a nice lunch and bond as a family. Just a great place!

This zoo sits on 80 acres and home to 4,000 different animals. The admission is fair but you can spend anywhere from about an hour to all day at the zoo so its worth it. The gift shops are a nice place to shop at with a variety of gifts for all ages..Nice little places to get food or something sweet to eat on such as ice cream or cotton candy. If you don't feel like walking they also have a gas powered zoo train to take you around for a little tour. One thing that I do not like about this is they dont usually have enough parking and u have to drive around awhile to get a parking place. One of the best things is you can go all year round even on Christmas Day.

PROS: open all year round
CONS: not enough parking

I love the Denver Zoo!! So many animals in great habitats and theres always something new every time you go!! The lions have a wonderful new exhibit that you can really see them up close. The wide open savannah and the large variety of African animals were amazing. The Primate Panorama and the tropical discovery are fun places to see. The polar bear exhibit here is really great!! You can see them from both above and below the water. Its always fun to see them play! The gift shop is stuffed with lots of stuff. You can get nice gifts here.

The zoo was so much fun. they have redone several of the habitats for the animals. The new enclosures are intrusting to look and really portray were the animals come from. the lions have a wonderful new exhibit that you can really see them up close. The primate areas is also done very well but watch out it is also very big.

I love the Denver Zoo!! So many animals in great habitats. And you can bring in a picnic lunch!
Last time we were there, we spent so much time at the new Lion Habitat with a Zoo Worker who gave my kids a ton of information about the lions and wild dogs. They loved it...and maybe even learned something.
A memebership here is well worth it as you can see so much!

Every time we go to the Denver Zoo there is something new and exciting to see. It is imposible to explore the Zoo so much that you have nothing new to see the next time. One thing to stay away from....the food! They have newly remodled many parts of the Zoo, one of my favs, the gift shop. It is stuffed full of stuff! Two whole levels of it. If you ever need birthday, chirstmas or whatever gift ideas it is a great place to go.

We really enjoy this zoo especially their exhibit during Halloween. They have animal display lights during that time and it was really cool. The displays move as to make it more real. It is decorated really festive and we really enjoy it. It is easy to navigate around the zoo as the signs are easy to read and follow. We have always been able to see the animals we came to see. Love this zoo.

The Denver Zoo has some really neat exhibits. The Polar Bear area is a lot of fun because you can watch them from above and below the water. It is so much fun to see them play! The elephants are almost always outside playing with thier old beat up tire and the kids always love to watch them. There is a large lake where you can feed the birds too! Many of the cages are easily looked into by smaller children to which is great so the paretns don't have to always lift them up.

I visited the zoo in June 2005. I loved it. The wide open savannah and the large variety of african animals were amazing. My kids couldn't get enough of the penguins and polar bears performing stunts while swimming. Well worth the admission price.

With all the nice weather we get here in Colorado, you can go to the zoo pretty much year round. Kids love it. There are so many different animals. The new Predator Ridge is amazing. You get such a great look at the lions from several places. The Primate Panorama is fun too, as there always seems to be a new baby! The Tropical Discovery is a fun place, though i do not like it that you can't bring your stroller in there. It's not really got enough room to maneuver it, but i wish they had thought about it, as it makes it difficult if you have young children and you are hauling a bunch of stuff. I don't think you can bring bags or anything in there, i think because there are fish/aquarium tanks that are open at the top, and of course you are going to get silly people trying to feed the animals! Our favorite display are the Polar Bears. They seem to always be having fun jumping in the water or playing with each other. Dad is in seperated from the mom and babies at the moment. Not sure why, but i'm sure they know what they are doing! I highly recommend getting the pass. You can pay if off easily by going only a few times, plus you get discounts in the gift store! Overall a great way to spend the day with the family!
