The only way to justify the $ 40 entrance fee is to hope that it is helping the animals. Otherwise its a waste of money. Sadly the place has become run down. With very few animals out and visible...

Fun zoo experience. We parked in lot B and walked in. It was a nice tree covered path once inside which made the temperature a bit cooler than in the parking lot. I found the zoo to be a mix of older and newer buildings and exhibits. It is a big zoo and has some interesting architecture and architectural history. My kids had fun which is most important. We’ll consider the membership next year because it was more than $150 for the family without any food or souvenirs. Fortunately we packed a few sandwiches and the kids don’t have the stamina for an all day journey anyway so the couple times we have been have each been unique unlike some other famous zoos which you see everything in a day.
It was amazing experience. The habitat exhibits like the Congo Gorilla Forest and etc. offer astounding experiences and should not be missed. You can easily spend an entire day here. Great place to bring kids so they can explore a variety of different animal exhibitions and the wildlife! Highly recommend this place weather your a local or visiting from out of state, with or with out kids.
Amazing experience and we went their in fall. so many species to see and you can spend your day with kids easily. better to arrive early if you want to cover the whole zoo. We arrived on 10am and waited there untill it closed. seasonal monorail takes you through the Asian wilderness. It open May – October only. Closed November – April and Weather dependent. try to go in the monorail first If it is open, otherwise you have to wait more than 1 hour due to long line. Better to book your tickets in advance and wear comfortable shoes. Love the surrounding area too.
A great place to visit and see lots of different species of animals. The zoo is large and you will need to arrive early in the morning if you want to see everything. We came at 11 and stayed until closing time missing only two exhibits. Tickets do need to be reserved in advance and Wednesday is free with limited admission. We paid $18 each for upgraded general admission on Wednesday and were able to see the available attractions (Congo Forest, Butterfly Garden, Monorail, etc.) in addition to exhibits. We were able to get inside without any waiting and it was not crowded.
The Bronx Zoo is awesome! So many areas to visit. Wear comfortable shoes because it can be alot of walking! The dinosaur safari was great, the gorillas are a must see! The monorail which is seasonal is now opened & is a nice ride around Asia. Not only do you get to see amazing animals, but you get a nice break from a lot of walking! There's also a shuttle you can catch if you don't want to walk from 1 end of the zoo to the next, but while walking there are lots of things to see. You can get lunch, ice cream & snacks there, but you can take your own food & water with you too. Buy tickets online before going. I've gone multiple times. During the week is less hectic than a weekend or even a holiday weekday. Ample parking but cost $20. If you have an annual pass you get a discount. The annual pass can get 3 adults & 4 kids in for free, so of you think you'd visit often, maybe it's worth getting.
