Terrific zoo for adults and for children alike! Lots of walking and it seems all of it is uphill! So you get plenty of exercise. Great layout and exhibits— lots of active animals when we visited! Had a great time! Recommend!

What a great place to visit. Loved the lights, the fires to keep is warm and feeding the giraffes absolutely made my night. Cannot wait to go during daylight hours.

Beautiful exhibits and a great variety of exotic animals. They seem to be pretty adapted to the climate which was a little cold for most of them.

Cannot beat this zoos location. Giraffes are one of the best parts. Definitely worth a visit especially with your young ones. This is a Colorado Mountain zoo, be prepared for some walking but they do offer shuttles if needed.

Still loads of fun to feed the giraffes, see all the animals so close up and to not suffer a lot of crowds. Better than the Denver Zoo and our daughter still loves it as a pre-teen.

This is a really nice zoo. Upon entry, you are given tokens to donate to help conservation efforts for your species of choice, which is really cool and places attention on conservation of these animals. There is a ton to see and the usual concessions....More
