Owner description: Colorado Springs is home to America’s ONLY mountain zoo. Located at 6,800 feet above sea level, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo offers breathtaking views of the city and of its 750 animals. The unique design of the Zoo’s animal exhibits gets guests closer than ever before. Hand-feed one of the largest reticulated giraffe herds in the world, watch grizzlies swim with trout, hop next to red-necked wallabies and get hands on with some of the Zoo’s smaller residents in The Loft. Have a WILD adventure at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – see the animals, ride an antique carousel, eat a gourmet lunch at the Grizzly Grill and ride the Mountaineer Sky Ride to the Zoo’s summit. Visit 365 days a year for family fun at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

What a great zoo this is! I visit at least 2x per year. I love going in the winter when the big mammals are out on a nice winter day and active and the non hairy ones are happy in their enclosures where you can see them in warmth.
This zoo gets better all the time. The exhibits have really improved to make for a lovely experience.

If you want some exercise walk the paths up the mountain and down. If not , the have a shuttle.

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has always been a regular staple for my family. When my kids were little we had the family pass and went all the time. Now that they are older we go less often but when we do it’s still a family favorite. I love that the animals are always outside and in the coolest habitats! They are always making new improvements so that so fun to see what has changed!

This was great. Took a trolley to the top and worked our way down. Feeding the giraffes and the rhinoceros was unique.
