Although one cannot predict how many visitors to the College World Series will also take advantage of the zoo, but from what I understand, the attendance at the World Series can have a significant impact on downtown Omaha and the surrounding area. If you have the option, it might be better to visit either before or after the World Series to assure your plans are not disrupted.

It’s a huge zoo and can accommodate thousands. I doubt the College World Series will create a problem. Go as soon as it opens as it gets busier as the day goes on. Have fun! It’s the best Zoo in the world (not an exaggeration).

So we went and it was fine however there is a lot of construction going on and a few of the exhibits were closed. Great Zoo we will be back.

I wouldn't think that would be a good time. Lots of school and camp trips going on. Still a great time regardless but get there early. Only so many teams play on a certain day but I would be willing to bet that some of the people involved with the series will visit the zoo at some point. If they don't they are missing out

I’m sorry, I was just a visitor to the Zoo. It was only my second trip to Seattle it. I live I. Washington State. I would imagine it is busy in summer and I’m not sure how the other event would effectbthe crowds at the zoo.

If you plan on getting a hotel room forget it 400 a night during the CWS. We never go to Omaha during the College World Series because everything is busy and expensive.

The Omaha Zoo is “not” very busy doing the College World Series because the interest is in the baseball games. You might be remembering when the CWS was played at Rosenblat Stadium years ago, and the parking was adjacent to the Zoo. During those days it was a hectic time at both the CWS and the Zoo. However now, Rosenblat has been torn down and CWS is played down town miles away from the Zoo. So, June and July are great times to visit the Zoo.
