“Always updating!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

This zoo always seems to have something new every year. From the updated cat house to the new cheetah exhibit, this place always has something to draw you back and keep you interested.

“Great Trip and Beautiful Weather”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Loved this Zoo! It was half price to get in during the month of February so that was a bonus! This is a very large zoo, very spread out so a lot of walking on hilly area. It was a sunny day about 45 degrees and perfect. Not too crowded, and could see all the exhibits without a problem. It took about 3 hours to walk through. Would definitely recommend!

“A wonderful Zoo for young & old, any age”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

A beautiful zoo to walk (hilly) and see lots of animals & beautiful flowers in the spring & summer. The zoo has changed a lot over the past 10 years - all for the better! Even the parking lot is new, with a solar cover to provide shade & energy too.

“Great Zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

This zoo is fantastic and all the wildlife areas have great views of the animals and have a nice varity. Beware that it is a very hilly zoo, so you'll get a workout. The area of Cincinnati that the zoo is located is not the best, but once your inside its a great time. It also has a nice display of lights at Christmas time.
