4.6/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web
Home to more than 750 animals, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is the only mountainside zoo in the United States. Apart from the mountainous surroundings, the zoo is home to the largest herd of reticulated giraffes in the country. Visit the tall animals and consider paying an extra fee for a few leaves of lettuce to hand-feed the gentle creatures. The zoo is also home to a refurbished 1937 carousel and a host of gift shops and restaurants.

  • There were many zoos in the world and States, in particular, but this produced a strong impression. He was not particularly big, is strolling through the mountains, but it does not feel that go up and down. It all begins with the giraffes, which are very much and can feed ($ 3 small pack, $ 5 large). Fed the usual romaine salad that sold and stores. So if your child is a maniac and ready to feed them a clock, you can bring with you, this is not being followed. Go ahead, walk, feed, you can even parrots. Asia section just so go Kangaroo, without cells. There is a paddock with goats for children who love to iron. There is a carousel for $ 2. Really enjoyed that corrals for animals drawn along, rather than inland, as in many zoos, so animals always in mind. By car you can also drive the whole Zoo, rise above the observation deck (this is included in the ticket price). The only downside is the cost of the ticket, especially for children from 3 years old which still hard to look at so many animals. But child age nobody checks, not only after we have nobody Kass tickets are not asked.
