This zoo is awesome. Make sure you visit the new elephant exhibit! The exhibits are not too spread out which means you get to see more before your kids get too tired. There is a free tram that goes around the zoo on a regular schedule. They even have great classes for kids during the summer.

This is a very well kept zoo with lots of animals spread over different areas. Plenty of room and not crowded to see the exhibits. Wheelchairs and buggies are available for the less able also buggies for small children. Food and drinks in the cafes are reasonably priced. A great day out for all.

Since I have a membership, I have been more times than I can count. I usually go during the week to avoid crowds. Its a big zoo with many eating choices and bathroom facilities and of course many different animals.

We took our grandchildren, 6 months and 2 years. In about 2.5 hours we covered many of the exhibits and all were well done, especially for young children. This will be a go to outing whenever we visit Wichita. We brought our lunch and there were many places to eat while enjoying the wildlife.

SCZ is truly a great zoo. The new elephant habitat is massive & 1st rate. The zoo is constantly improving. Sure there were some animals off exhibit, but that is just part of any zoo. Wichita supports them & deservedly so !!!

I have been visiting the Sedgwick County zoo for over 25 years on trips visiting my Aunt, who lives in the area. They have made a lot of great changes in the last several years. I love taking my kids here and spending the day with 3 generations enjoying the scenery.
