  • My family gets the season pass and we try to visit every weekend. My kids really love to watch all the animals, sometimes the animals are really funny.  more »
  • I enjoy this zoo and it is the closest to where I live. However, its not really anything special. I wouldn't make a long trip just for the zoo because there is much better out there, but if you are in...  more »

  • The zoo was great! The Lemurs, The Spider Monkeys, The Elephants, the Chimps, The Orangutans, The Giant Tortoises, the Zebras, the Flamingos... these were all great, but the Penguins really brought out the little child in my 9-year-old. He absolutely loved them. Also, the restroom we used was clean, and there was a large well air-conditioned cafĂ© (We went in June) where we could get something to eat or drink. There was also a gift shop where I picked up a 13" stuffed zebra for $10.99, to take home to my 3-year-old.
  • Great play area for kids and great carousel. It seemed like a 1/4 of the large animals were put up- lions and bears amongst others. The layout was not well thought out or planned. But the staff that we encountered was great!
  • Quite a few primates and simians. Food is okay. Good playground for the younger ones. The service is lacking. They need to revamp the way they interact in the front office with the customer. They need to have an exit that is not the gift shop, so every trip doesn't end with kids complaining.
  • The LR Zoo has improved a ton over the years. Some of the animals probably need bigger enclosures, but they all seem very well cared for despite that. The staff are all very friendly and if you are there at a feeding time they will usually stop and talk to you and answer questions and are very nice and knowledgeable. The restaurant is good. Has typical burgers and hotdog type foods and even a few healthy options like turkey wraps.
  • It's a little better than the first time I visited this zoo a few years ago but still doesn't wow me. Some of the animals were not even out and their enclosures were too small for them. I can't believe they charge so much to see only half the animals and some of them look gloomy. I have been to the OKC and seen better enclosures and paid only $8 and no extra for parking. What are they doing wwith their parking and entrance fees? The only reason I went this visit is because it was zoo day for my daughter and her school.
