“Animal exhibitions a must - suprisingly fun”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

We were not sure how much we would enjoy the zoo - family with 2 boys 10 and 13 who prefer outdoor water activities. We were all suprised by how much fun we had at the Zoo. We did go ahead and get the package that included everything - this resulted in a very ackward train ride with older kids - the train is really meant for 6 and under and is not the type that go around the zoo so you can see the zoo from above. We did accidently catch a few animal exhibitions and we LOVED them - they have the animals trained for care reasons and use this training to show the animals off to the visitors - this was very well done and really worth trying to time your trip for these.

The zoo was wonderful! The grounds were absolutely beautiful and there were so many animals to see. The Wild Wings of Wonder Bird Show was great!

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

As someone who frequents zoos, we loved it! The paths and map were a bit confusing, but we were able to find some interesting stuff that way. The white lions were amazing.

“Other zoos just don't compare to the Cincinnati Zoo!”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

Even though I am a yearly member, I don't get to go often. However, when someone asks if I want to go, you bet I will. It's always more enjoyable when you can share the experience with others.
