I believe it was around $28 for two adults to get in. Large open area. The lions were unavailable, and most of the animals were hidden. Coffee was $3 each small cup in the Bistro, and was just regular (nothing fancy) You had to pay extra to ride the train, which we decided not to ride. Loved the scenery and... More

Hubby and I spent most of the day at the zoo and loved every minute of it! Parking was easy, it wasn't expensive and though it was rainy looking it didn't spoil our day. They have some animals that I've never seen before (bobcat, siberian lynx and amur leopard) so I was very excited, I can highly recommend this attraction... More

Great place for learning and enjoying. Small children love to see the animals but are learning with the signs and listening activities. The tactic interaction is very good as well.

We have been annual passholders for years. They have made lots of great improvements in that time. I feel they strike a good balance between animal comfort and visibility. The lions are a must-see, and the bird show is always fun. The seal and elephant shows are great, too!

This is one of my families favorite places to go. There is a ton of stuff to see and we were able to go when they had their dinosaur experience which added to the fun things to look at. It's a pretty decent sized zoo so you'll need to plan on walking quite a bit. They have some small playground... More

The interesting animals are in very nice surroundings. Wonderful dinosaur displays. They move and make noise. The short train ride is nice as is the carousel.

I've been to a lot of zoos and would rank this one among the best. The exhibits are well designed and the opportunity to see a variety of species is great! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I will return again the next time I'm in Salt Lake!

This was a great zoo. The dinosaurs around the park was a great addition. Animals were easy to see. And the staff was very friendly.

This is a small zoo, that is nice for a few hours. The staff are not very friendly, this is a zoo, lots of children, get some staff who are good with them. The price is a little high for what it is. They do not have a lot of animals, or we did not see a lot while there.... More
