  • I go to the Tulsa zoo on a regular basis, but the best change they've made in a long time was the lost kingdom exhibits. No longer are the tigers stuck in a concrete exhibit from over fifty years ago....  more »
  • Who doesn't love seeing animals? I for one love animals and find such joy visiting zoos. Price: $10 to enter the zoo, so it's not as expensive as other zoos in the country. But as the saying goes "you...  more »

  • This is a decent sized zoo, they have a nice variety of animals on exhibit.staff was friendly and the maps are easy to use. Animals looks well cared for and everything looks well kept and clean. Food and drinks are pricey but I expect that at a zoo or amusement park. Overall it's a great day out for the family and we enjoyed it.
  • Great Zoo for size of the City sustaining it. They do a rather well job, and the staff there is nice. The part stays for the most part clean. The Animals look well taken after. I like their new attraction, the Hidden Kingdom. I come here alot with my family, and my company rents out a big section and has a yearly picnic and games.
  • I think the focus on conservation this zoo has is having the effect of a few empty enclosures, but that's honestly where I want my money going. I've just been able to show my niece an elephant that was there when I was her age looking at elephants for the first time! So cool!
  • This is one of the best places to take your family. They are continuingly opening new exhibits and working hard to make this the go to spot in the state. We have been season ticket holders for several years and love it.
  • I love the new Lost Kingdom. The big cats and Komodo Dragon have much larger and beautiful habitats. The gardens were gorgeous as well. I love our Tulsa Zoo!
