If you are planning on doing more than one attraction in Atlanta, definitely do the CityPass. Aquarium, Zoo or Civil Rights Institute, World of Coke, CNN Center, and other stuff for less than $80. The Aquarium alone will cost you $30+. Best parts: pandas and...More

We loved this zoo! Way worth the money and time to go! The pandas were wonderful! Go first thing in the morning and head to the panda area first. Lots of shade and tons of animals to see and enjoy!

Took our 17 year old daughter for her first visit to zoo. She is in love. The exhibits were fantastic. Lots of education opportunities. The train was a plus. We were not disappointed. It was a very busy day but the flow of the exhibits...More

Loved spending the day at the zoo. The Pandas were inside but we had no problem seeing them. All of the exhibits were beautiful, loved seeing the Lions and Primate exhibits too. Well worth the visit if you are in Atlanta.

We bought a city pass so it was a no brainier to visit while on vacation. For a bigger city I was expecting a little bit more. The exhibits were nice but and there were plenty of indoor places to cool off. It rained halfway...More

The zoo is inside a city park. It's a little smaller than I expected, but still nice. The elementary school kids visiting while we were there seemed to have a good time so that might be a good age. I like animals so I enjoyed...More

This is an excellent zoo. The whole zoo is shaded so even when hot it was fairly pleasant and made the zoo easier to navigate. The gorIllas and pandas are the best enclosures. There is plenty to do for younger kids with a playground and...More

Response from Shawn W | Property representative |
Yes, the animals are very active in the mornings. You'll see everything from animals stretching to feeding. You'll even hear our trio of lion brothers roaring in the morning! Parking is also great.

Is there any kind of pass/discount that lets you go two or three days in a row? Is there more than one voucher in the city pass? Or do you have to pay each day?

Response from Shawn W | Property representative |
The only offer we have for two or three day visits would be an annual membership; in which two visits pays for itself. We do offer military, college students, AAA, law and fire dept discounts as well.

Are the pandas only viewable through glass, or is there an outdoor portion of the exhibit, too? Also, is the exhibit very crowded with the baby pandas now?

The panda's were all behind the glass, I think they do that to protect The Panda's & The Public from each other, I was able to see them clearly & get great pictures.
