Go early before the crowds and then enjoy an undercover animal and bird review the kids will adore. Performing pigs, vultures, and a talking bird that can say “popcorn” enchanted the kids. Great summer activity.

Whether with friends, family, or on a date, this is an amazing place to visit in the morning, afternoon, or evening. The zoo lights are a great highlight every year. Also a great place to take school groups.

It had some decent attractions however some of the animals weren't out when we visited. I used to larger metropolitan zoos so my expectation was set a bit higher. This was a nice zoo that you would expect to see in a smaller town.

We went to the Denver Zoo for the day. It was hot but there were alot of places to cool off. The animals were amazing and really cool to see. Well worth the money.

Went to zoo early. Was not busy. Food was good. But like most zoos. Food is expensive. Buy the Denver city pass. You can see 3 diff places and makes it cheaper. Lots of animals. Fun time.
