Brought my nephew here on his birthday. I can tell that he had fun the whole day. Well, I did, too. He enjoyed feeding the Lorikeets most. The zoo had several separations for the animals which were housed here. They were placed according to their habitats. We particularly had fun seeing the moose, otters, red pandas and koalas. We brought our own packed lunch and did not not buy from the stalls inside the zoo. This made us save a good amount because the food inside were a little expensive. We spent almost 8 hours walking around the zoo but we still did not finish touring the whole place! I just wish we had more time, though. We would definitely go back for a second visit.

What a wonderful zoo! Loved the dinosaur island, blew the Bronx zoo's dinosaur tour out of the water. Definitely recommend this for parents of young children

The zoo was much bigger than expected. It took 5+ hours to get throught the whole park and we only did one of the rides through a dinosaur exhibit. There are normal roller coasters in the zoo park for an added cost of the zoo ticket, but we didn't ride those.

AWESOME at Christmas time! The Polar Bears were exciting to see and had a good mix of indoor and outdoor activities. Light displays are beautiful and interactive. Great for kids but we went as adults and had a great time!

Great zoo! Very nice large "natural" feel habitats for many of their animals. Great selection of animals as well. The animals all seem very healthy and well taken care of. The zoo itself is very well maintained and has beautiful landscaping. The manatees were awesome! If you love this zoo, you need to check out the Omaha Zoo. Columbus Zoo is only second to Omaha to our family.
