This zoo is always a good family day. So Much to see, always looks like they take well care of the animal's. We make this trip at least once a year.

For $15, you get a lot of zoo. It's not the biggest or the best, but they had a nice, wide range of animals. The zoo is broken into David different regions of the world. Worth going to.

The Cleveland zoo is very large with different admission pices for what you decide you want to do. The only thing I think that really needs improvement are the signs. We passed the elephants four times following signs for the primates. Roads lead off the...More

Very nice zoo to take the family. We got to see a new baby orangutan who was extremely adorable. Apparently they have a new baby giraffe as well but we didn't make it to the exhibit. Bathrooms are very clean too. Highly recommend!

My son (who is 20) and I loved this zoo. Our first time visit, we spent 6 hours there and could have easily spent more if we did not have to leave for a family get together. Amazing animals, many I had never heard of....More

Our biggest gripe about the zoo is that the signage is AWFUL. The map is barely helpful. The zoo seems to expect that you know your way around. We are from Columbus, home of a world-class zoo so we may be spoiled by that. When...More

The price for an all inclusive ticket is $23.50. This includes admission to the zoo AND rainforest, rides on the train in the Australian exhibit, the 4-D movies and a zoo key with a lanyard. Hope this helps.

It doesn't go all the way around the zoo, but it does take to you to the cats & primates. There is an extra charge for the train. When I went no one checked our tickets.
