Very impressive piece of architecture. Learning about Will Rogers through the photos on the wall very interesting. Fantastic views of Colorado Springs and surrounding area. Glad this was included in the zoo fee should not miss if you are visiting the zoo.

The road up to the Will Rogers Memorial is cut through rock and climbs a hearty mountain. It is worth the trip to learn some history of this famous humorist and to see the historical murals on the main level.

We wanted to see the shrine on July Fourth. I had heard that the zoo now had the shrine as part of its attractions. First we had to pay $25 PER PERSON to buy zoo tickets. You don't typically attract the same kind of people...More

Easy road to travel up the mountain from the zoo. The views of Colorado Springs and beyond are beautiful. The information our host, George, shared with us was very interesting.

I have seen this shrine from below, but this is the first time going to the top. We rode our motorcycle after viewing the zoo, which gives you a free pass to the shrine, at over 8000 ft elv. Great view and history of Will...More
