I love the zoo. Nicest on a not so very hot day. Love the elephant walk. You can feed the giraffes and ride the camels. The carousel is also very nice. All different animals. Very pretty.

It is a beautiful place. It was very warm Feb day, off to the zoo. We paid too much for what was there. I get it- it's February the exhibits and animals were not available. I feel the price should have been more affordable considering...More

I love the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. There's a lot of nice exhibits to see. It is a lot of walking, but worth it.

Everyone;s biggest complaint is that you have to walk so much to get around this zoo - but I think that's part of what makes it great, Also the Elephant walk is pretty amazing and the Giraffe encounter is pretty special. Lots to see,

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.
