What can I say about this zoo. It’s amazing!! I have had a membership here ever since I can remember and I have held multiple different job titles here. I can honestly vouch for the place and say that they want to make your day better and brighter! The have many different play areas for the kids of all ages and make sure it’s a good environment for them as well! The species diversity is great too, and the expansions are many! The food is a bit pricey but you can bring in your own as well as drinks (nonalcoholic). They have so much to do, definitely take a whole day to enjoy this place!!

Sit back and enjoy my story of the time I went to the Columbus Zoo........... When I was 18 years 3 months 23 days and 5 minutes old I had the best time at the Zoo. What did I do you ask to have such a great time? I got to race a giraffe and obviously my ride of choice to challenge this giraffe was a lizard with a saddle, I heard they were one of the fastest and maybe only animal able to run wearing a saddle. So I had to give it a try. And you know what? I won, that giraffe had no idea what to expect. But really the Columbus Zoo was great and everyone no matter the age should go see the incredible animals that they have. It’s a place you can go with friends and a place you can go with your family it’s wonderful.

We are fortunate enough to live fairly close to a great zoo. We buy a membership each year . It's so nice to be able to arrive at opening time and stay for a few hours. Take your own drinks and food if possible. While it is nice to buy goodies or even meals it is quite expensive, that's why I give four stars instead of five. The grounds are always well kept and usually there are docents on hand who are familiar and knowledgeable about the animals. Plenty of extras for the kiddos as well.

the map was easy to follow. but when we got lost because we took a different path. there was always someone to ask.. We got to feed birds and ride camels even take a boat ride through looking at dinosaurs. Feeding a giraffe was amazing. the only down part is everything is so expensive. I'm glad we brought food and drinks, so that we could do all the fun things we wanted too. otherwise is was like choose something fun or pay an arm and a leg for food... But overall it was well worth all the walking and getting to see some amazing animals.

The zoo is amazing. That pretty much sums it all up. The layout is great and super easy to navigate. It is sectioned off into similar areas around the world which all offers there own excitement. The maintenance crew does an outstanding job and the place is always so clean. The zoo lights at Christmas time are a must. My family has gone every year since we have lived here!
