  • It’s a nice zoo. With grandkids ranging from age 7-16, it kept everyone interested. The Gem Dig was the ultimate fun for them!  more »

  • We loved this zoo! They had alot of animals and they playground was really fun. We went on a week day morning and it was not crowded so we really got to enjoy ourselves.  more »
  • Tulsa Zoo has done such a nice job revamping the exhibits and creating different programs to engage the community in supporting the zoo. All the animals seem happy and cared for. The new Lost World section is really great! The Coop food is tasty and you can even view the tiger exhibit from the porch area while you're eating. So glad I got a membership this year!
  • Extremely fun! Don’t have kids? Well who cares. Fun for any age! However please be respectful if you do have kids and watch them. Did see one worker get into an argument with a family because he asked a kid to get down off of something they shouldn’t have been on.
  • Love that there are some new exhibits. Our 5 year old had a blast! She loved the giraffes and all the birds. Wish the food places were more affordable and the food was better quality. My hot dog was way over cooked and the fries were cold. My daughter brought things to the nature exchange and came home with some nice trades. Just remember nothing you trade can be something found at the zoo. Also, older kids can get credit by writing a paper on an item from nature. They give 150pts for those papers. Great place for the kiddos!
  • Let me tell you, this place has really turned around, and for good reason. We haven't been in a while and decided to visit. We were not disappointed by far. Fresh face animals and very creative art displays. Which is a breath of fresh air from the displays of yesteryear. Keep up the good work we will be back!
  • The zoo made for a fun day with the family. The train ride is worth it but ride it up to the other end not back to the entrance if you do a one way trip. The ride back has virtually nothing to see so all it is is a break from walking. This zoo is decent for the price and has plenty to keep the kids occupied. Have fun and make sure to head over to the cantina for a beer or a cold drink.
