Most people in this area would say that the Seattle Aquqarium is a great place to visit but I find the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium to be a lot more enjoyable. They have cheaper prices and it includes the zoo as well. to see the Seattle Zoo you have to drive north and spend more for the tickets at each location then for one ticket to see both features in Tacoma. Check this one out you wont be disappointed....

This is a great place to take the family. The kids will enjoy the various animals and if you get the chance stop by the bird shows they have. It was great watching the huge birds taking commands and perfoming on que. It was a great experience for the kids.

This is an excellent zoo. I take my son here every other week or so. I have the year pass, it is worth the cost. Parking is free. There is an amazing toddler area that my son loves.

This is a nice zoo....and not too big. They have most of the "major" animals you would see at a zoo, plus a great shark exhibit, some whales, and some other sea animals. They have a lot of places to eat and a small petting zoo. It's a lot smaller than the zoo in Seattle and cheaper as well. Great fun for a day trip.

When going to this zoo you and your family will be in store for a day of fun. There are many different animals to see and shows to watch. The petting zoo is a hit for all that love animals. During Christmas time they have the Zoolights! So much fun. If you haven't been you are missing out on a lot of fun!

We've gone here on a few fieldtrips for school and it's a great place to go! It is not as crowded as Woodland Park zoo so it is perfect if you have a large group. The elephants are fun to watch as they're so close. We also love the peacocks wondering around! They preen right in front of you and make for a great picture! There is ample free parking and a nice zoo!

This is such a fun place to go with the whole family. My kids love going here. Its a zoo and an aquarium rolled into one. They have a Wild Wonders Outdoor Theatre where the zoo keepers do some presentations. They have a Kids Zone that has an otter slide, a dancing lilypad fountain, goats for the kids to feed and a play area.

We love the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium!! Its not a huge zoo, but the kids are able to track the animals, and even remember their names from our many visits. It's also good to remember that the mission of this zoo is to only focus on animals found on the Pacific Rim. You're not going to find any african animals at this zoo (ie: giraffes) They added an amphitheater last year, and it has a very good animal show. The polar bears are our favorite animals. They always seem to be playing, and bouncing around in the water when we are there. That exhibit makes you really understand how very massive and strong polar bears can be. Also, don't forget the annual Zoo Lights. They do this exhibit every December, and it gets better every year. They transform the zoo with christmas lights, and they have carols playing while you walk around the zoo and see all the lights. If you love christmas lights, this is for you.

PROS: A small zoo that allows for a very personal experience.
CONS:

If your children are learning about sea creatures this is the perfect place to take them. They have every creature you could think of including sharks, octoupus, and beluga whales. Its a very thorough exhibit. Zoos should be fun for children and this one is. My son loved riding the elephants and he wants to come back soon.

You so have to go to this zoo, it is one of the best in the country. The employees were actually walking some of the animals out next to you. They are very knowledgable on each animal. The zoo is absolutely beautiful. The new kids zone is so much fun, my daughter absolutely loved it. What a great day of fun.

They have a new kidszone which makes it even more fun for the kids. They can play in the water and go down slides and climb on things. Its a nice way to end your trip by stopping there on your way out. We love the walrus and the elephants. The aquarium is way cool too.

Right next to beach, cheap prices, and good things to see. It is great for a family to go where the funnest thing is being around each other, not have to be entertained by someone or something else. The beach is really fun and it is pretty too.

its worth the drive down to point defiance. its a hidden gem. its definetly a better value than the seattle zoo-aquarium combo. less crowds, tons of parking and huge. theres less animals per space, but good exhibits. nothing super unique, but solid in every way.

I've been going to this zoo since I was a little kid. They keep updating their selection of animals, to make it a fun and rewarding experience. It is the best place to go to see animals in tacoma. They have an exhibit for tropical sharks that just leaves me in awe. You walk through a jungle into a cave , arriving in a warm tropical sandy exhibit. The sharks swim around you. It's just really cool. If you hate zoos, I guarantee you won't hate this one. It's not just animals in a cage. The staff was happy to explain anything about the animals, and they know their stuff. The zoo looks like they spent a great amount of time trying to make it appealing to viistors. Each exhibit takes you to the animals correct habitat and makes the experience great. I would definately go again.

PROS: great animals exhibits staff

We love this zoo. I love ET the walrus and the tigers are cool. They are also getting 2 female walruses in and I cannot wait to visit them. My kids love the kidszone. We got a membership because we liked it so well. It is not very big so you arent exhausted and it has a great view.

This is a really cool place to go with your kids or with a group of friends and your kids just for the day. They have a ton of stuff to look at and keep you kids busy for hours on end. There is a lot of walking involved when you go so be prepeared...

I think this zoo may be on a tight budget. I have been to several zoo's in the country and this one has to be one of the smallest and least well kept. The cost is that of some of the larger zoo's I have visited, but the trip is not worth it. You can navigate yourself around this zoo in less than 3 hours. If I am going to pay more than 5 or 6 dollars per person than I expect it to be a nice day out, especially when the food is so expensive on top of the cost to get in. It seems they have put alot of money into a few new habitats. One of the new habitats is huge, but we only saw 2 or 3 animals in it. They label it to have several species.

PROS: Close to home, good food.
CONS: Price and time spent. I like the zoo to be a half day event at least.

We have never run out of things to see and do at Point Defiance. What an amazing place for kids (and adults!).
The new children's play area is such a hit. Make sure to bring the kids' swim suits or a change of clothes, they are sure to get wet in the fun sprinklers!
The Asian area is our favorite by a long shot. We could spend all day watching the animals.
Of course the presentations they give are not to be missed, either! Plan on spending the entire day!

Although the wildlife rehabilitation that takes place is impressive, the permanent displays don't have much that isn't overshadowed by the Woodland Park Zoo. The decor is sometimes rundown, and from the decor it appears that they had their heyday in the 60s and that they're past their prime and in decline. It is something to do if you're stuck in Tacoma, but you definitely don't have to do both zoos.

Great place to take the family who is new to the area or just visiting from out the town. This zoo is on the small size but offers something for everyone. The childrens play area is large enough to give children of all ages somewhere to play as well as several shows per day to see animals out of thier cages in a safe way.

PROS: great place to take the family
CONS: high prices for food and drinks

This zoo has a great idea - combine zoo and aquarium in one place! A wide variety of animals and exhibits that any and everyone will enjoy!

They have tigers, primates, elephants, wolves, birds, aardvark, reptiles, and more. Their aqua friends include beluga whales, walrus, sea otters, and puffins in one habitat, and a full aquarium with both north and south Pacific marine life such as sharks and octopus. There is something at this zoo for everyone.

In addition there are plenty of educational opportunities either hands on marine displays or educational discussions and shows.

The cost is very fair ranging from free (kids age 3 and under) on up to $8.75 for adults.

I highly recommend taking the kids, or some other family or friends, and spending the day enjoying these great creatures!

PROS: Great animals, fun time

I love this zoo! Having lived in Tacoma for most of my life, I have frequented this zoo many times. It it set in the beatiful location of Point Defiance park, which in itself is a wonderful spot to spend the day. The petting zoo is a nice thing for little kids, and i'll admit its even fun for adults! :P The food could be a little less pricey, but its overall worth the fun.

Point Defiance is a smaller zoo that feels "doable" in a morning or afternoon without feeling like you have to rush to see it all. It is set in a beautiful location. I found the layout a bit confusing at times with all the winding paths. Highlights include the shark tank and all of the aquatic exhibits. My son was fascinated by the monkey cage. They have a small area where you can buy and eat food; the tables fill up fast! There is lots of parking.

Point Defiance Zoo is a nice little zoo. Tickets aren't expensive and children under 3 are free. They recently remodeled the zoo and made it even nicer. It's a great place to spend a couple hours . Parking is free and we have always been able to find a parking spot without a problem. The staff seems to be really nice too.

I may be disqualified from reviewing the Pt. Defiance since my father has worked in the aquarium there since I was 5, but I don't care! This place has always had a special place in my heart. But as an adult, I can see the true benefits, like the plethora of outdoor exhibits and the aquariums, petting zoo for the kids, as well as the top notch staff and biologists that are on hand. They also have these special exhibits that run off and on throughout the year, like the white alligators and panda bears, etc. The zoo also hosts annual events and outdoor concerts every summer. Along with the 5 mile drive and owens beach, it's one of the best places to spend an afternoon. The cost is pretty good, and even lower if you are a pierce county resident. It's all for a good cause anyway.

PROS: bang for your buck!
CONS: maybe the size for some people.

My family loves to spend a few hours at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. The new additions make it even more of an adventure. I especially love the Sumatran tiger. The new kid's play area seems like a hit for children of all ages. The only down fall is that this place is so popular that parking can be a nightmare. If you go early it's easier to find a spot.

I took my 1 year old son here for the first time a month ago and he absolutely was mesmerized by the tropical fish and sharks. We were in that area for over 45 mins. We also loved the show that we saw. The birds flew right over us and the people in the show were very amusing. After our wonderful trip to the zoo I decided to purchase a yearly pass! We will be going there all summer long.

PROS: The shark tank is amazing

We love this zoo! We go there especially for the great aquarium. It's so much fun and easy to spend the whole day there. It's a little crowded sometimes, but not so bad to discourage us from going there. The price is right for a day out with the family. Food and drink is always convinient, and bathrooms too.
