Sedgwick County Zoo reviews
Hadn't been since my own childhood, and really enjoyed the large cats exhibit! 90 minute visit... so we only saw 1/3 of the animals, and look forward to returning!

The best zoo in the world in my opinion! Especially if you like tropical birds. They have a walk-in aviary with lots of beautiful, healthy pigeon/dove species and other birds from around the world. Some of them are very used to people and you can get great close-up photos of them. The other animals were cool to see too. You had your typical lions, tigers, and bears there plus some fun others like penguins and river hogs. Go there in the winter on a Wednesday and admission is dirt cheap!
I'm from Northern Kentucky and I frequent the Cincinnati Zoo and I have to compare this zoo to them. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the zoo and the variety of animals in the zoo overall. While it does not have as many animals you still have a very good representation of the continental areas they are covering. The biggest plus with this zoo is the amount of open space between exhibits and the help offered by the staff. They are very pleasant to deal with and helpful. I would definitely visit again when back in town!
Above expectations. You can easily spend 7 hours there. Currently, South America and Australia was closed. Other than that must visit place. One of the largest zoo in the country. Lots of animals. $22 per adult and $4 for feeding giraffe or touching stingray.
Very fun experience! There were so many different animals to see and interact with. We got to feed birds, giraffes, rhinos, hippos, and lemurs! Plus there were many other exhibits with many interesting animals! Great for kids and adults! Me and my wife loved it :)
The exhibits were done well, and there were lots of animals to see up close! The whole zoo was laid out nicely and easy to walk. There were a lot of unique features that I haven't seen at other zoos, and I left very impressed!
