Always a great time for everyone!

Even though we've been before, it's always fun to go to this award winning zoo. Gorillas, elephants, tigers, lions, giraffes, amphibians, river otters, penguins, and lots more!

Our grand-kids love Sedgwick County Zoo, and so do we. Lots of space to walk. Exhibits are well-organized and animals are amazingly accessible. Zoo "train" is a big hit with 5 yo's. Exceptionally clean and well-maintained.

We really love the zoo. Lots of exhibits. I love the new elephant and the chimpanzee exhibit. It gets extremely crowded in the summer but worth it.

The elephant display is worth the admission. We especially enjoyed the Australian exhibit. There is lots of shade so it would be good on a hot day. I carried a small backpack with water in it. There is an admission charge so check that out before arrival. It looked like the season passes would be worthwhile.

I've been to zoos all over the world, including the world-famous San Diego zoo, and I have to say that for its size, this zoo packs a punch. I went on a weekday afternoon, strolled around leisurely, ate lunch, and all-tolled spent about 3 hours. Things that struck me as great were the health and happiness of the animals. The... More

It is nice but kind of small and none of the cafes or boating were open. I guess its only open on weekends maybe. Also, most of the animals weren't out. I did like how the zoo was laid out. It didn't kill us to walk through and everything looped back to the main entrance so no backtracking really. We... More

The Sedgwick County Zoo is a a first-class institution. The animals are presented in natural surroundings and appear to be lovingly cared for. The new Elephant area is superbly laid out, as is the Slawson Tiger Area. Our granddaughters enjoyed the boat ride and appreciated the trolley. It was a special day.

Sedgwick zoo is always a pleasure to go to no matter what time of the year. Always find something new or different from the previous visit. Entertaining and educational no matter what age

Sedgwick County has one of the best zoos in the world. IF you are a member it is well worth going several times throughout the year. My family has been a member for years. Several zoos may offer reciprocation.
