This isn't the biggest zoo, but it's still a great zoo. It will have most of the animals that you can think of. It's just gorgeous also. The landscape is pretty. Don't miss feeding the giraffes and the nice gift shop. Also, you should get a pass if you have small kids.

I have lived most of my life around the Colorado Springs area. Ever since I can remember, my family visited this zoo regularly. We even held family passes for a number of years. My early experience at this zoo had helped me cement my vision of becoming a wildlife veterinarian. The zoo is clean, and the location is unique. You couldn't imagine where all these animals could be placed on the side of Cheyenne Mountain. Yet, they have created enclosures that are spacious, clean, and fitted to the animal's own habitat. The animals, for the most part, seem to be happy here, so it's a pleasure visiting these animals and getting educated about them. Also, this zoo is instrumental in helping endangered species reproduce, so their kind can live on. For example, the wolf woods offers a beautiful, private enclosure for wolves to reproduce, so they can be introduced into the wild. Their contact with humans is minimal to aid in their reintroduction to the wild. I love this zoo so much, that at 13, I volunteered at the zoo until I went to CSU to begin my career as a wildlife vet. I'm now a veterinarian and love going back. Visitors will not regret coming here to see and interact with the animals. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning about all the animals there in a unique setting.
