This is hands down the best zoo in the Mountain West. Despite taking no public money it is obvious a lot of money has been invested in the facility and that it has a robust operating budget. The zoo is built on the side of...More
I’ve been here many times. I love it and go every year. Lots of hills, so it’s a workout but well worth it. The gorillas are always my favorite. Pack a lunch or you can buy lunch there. We make an all day excursion out...More

The zoo was amazing. The giraffes were awesome to see so close. My grandkids loved feeding them. One of the giraffes licked my daughter in the face. It was so funny. We enjoyed every moment we were there. We can’t wait to go back.
This zoo is a little overpriced, but it is due to being a private zoo not funded by the state. A membership pays for itself in a few visits. It is a must for families with lots of kids. Always a good time
