    The peacocks were my favorite, strutting around. Almost free as a bird, besides the fact they live in a zoo! Lots to see will come back hopefully the Tigers or the Lions

    $20 for general admission gets you to most of the zoo. The soft serve ice cream is also one of the best I've had.

    The admission price is getting very expensive. I don't like that they charge extra for all the different activities. I have already paid a small fortune to get in.

    Winter time is zoo time. Many animals love the cold and it's a completely different experience without the crowds.

    Oliver Bouchard · March 8
  • Steff H.

    Try going end of fall / beginning of winter it's really quiet and most of the animals are still around.

    Já fui há muito tempo atrás, lembro que valeu a pena. Vou repetir essa visita em um próxima oportunidade! Se não me engano, é o 2º maior zoológico dos USA, só atrás de San Diego.

    Across from the Botanical garden and near Arthur Avenue, is the largest zoo in the US. Habitats are pretty life like and there is a tram to help you get around. Cafe is on premise if hunger strikes.

    Make sure to download the zoo map online before you go and plan a route. It's a big zoo and you can just end up going in circles- specially if you are going with a big group of kids. Parking is $15

    Pinchas Margolis · October 29, 2014

    Go on Wednesday and pay only the full experience tickets! (14.95$ instead of 28$+14.94$)

    Lenny Knecht · October 15, 2014
  • Simon K.

    Awesome place! You do need the entire day to visit everything. Get the total experience ticket. DO NOT GO ON DONATION DAY!

    Raquel Vasconcelos · August 28, 2014

    Awesome zoo. Lots of different habitats to explore. Splurge for the full experience ticket.

    Nice zoo with many things to see. Best day to visit is Wednesday which is free but attracts too many people so it will be crowded.

  • Erica T.

    The zoo is great and there's lots to see. Wednesdays have suggested admission as well as discounted full experience tickets.

    Under no circumstances bother with the shuttle. Huge inconvenient mess.

    The food is expensive so walk with your own but the exhibits are breath taking!

    Head to the sea bird colony at 3:30pm to watch them feed the penguins.

    Some of the exhibits here are just sad, particularly the big cats and polar bears. That said, the monorail is one of the best parts IMO. Don't be scared off by the line, it moves quickly.

    When you see zoo volunteers/ employees, ask them questions! Heard some cute anecdotes about specific animals this way.

    If you stop by check out Jungle World. Pretty good variety as far as species. Overall good bang for your buck.
