We hit every exhibit at just the right time. The tiger was out, the elephants were being fed, the hippo was active, oh, and the beer was cold! Our 15 month old loves it and the stroller went wherever we needed it to.

The Denver Zoo has some really cool exhibits. They have spent a lot of money recently updating many areas. Stop by for a visit if you have not been recently..!

Just ok. Went in the winter time so most of the animals were hibernating away from the view of the public. The carrousel and train were also closed due to the snow.
