This is a fun way to spend the weekend. So many animals to see. Little exhibits. A bird, reptile, insect area. Spent the whole day here and had an amazing time. Recommend for families who want to take the kids out for a fun weekend

I love the zoo but haven't been there in years. My two complaints I have won't really stop me from returning again, the price to get in is a little high and the fact that off season they don't have not one snack shack was opened. I didn't know this because I never went in March before. It was great and the animals were very active and we had fun.

Wonderful zoo with a variety of amazing animals! I ve been to so many zoo, it is definitely one of the best. Kiddo Train is adding one more fun for little kid! I will go again! Super kid friendly, my 2 year old was able to explore zoo himself.

We went to the zoo about 2hrs before closing on Easter weekend. Wasn't crowded. We rented a stroller which was very easy, it's just right next to where you scan tickets. Most the animals were out and it was easy to navigate around the park. *Our learning curve was paying for parking before leaving. It was a bit confusing.

this was the zoo I went to during my childhood for school field trips and family days out, we went yesterday and it was the first time I had went in over 10 years, and it was such an amazing time. I was so glad I got to see the trolls while they are at the zoo, and since we ended up getting a membership, I will be going back to see them again (I love Thomas Dambo's work!). I got the dual membership, which is only about $35 more than the cost for my partner and I to each get a ticket and park in their parking garage, and with the membership you get to go anytime during the year, plus you get free parking, so it's fantastic deal. The park was beautiful, the animals were very active, and the employees were welcoming and had plenty of information about the different animals around the park. My only complaint is the pricing for the food they have available is very high, what I would expect to pay if I was at a big theme park like Disney or Universal. $20 for a sandwich, fries, and can of soda, and that's with the 10% discount members get. Overall, I'm so looking forward to going back as much as I can while we have our membership!

We always put in our list to go to a zoo whenever we travel. Though most animals we have seen from different zoo are the same, what amazes me is we still had a different kind of experience. Philadelphia Zoo is an amazing zoo, great experience for the whole family and friends. What I like the most is the walking bridge they billed for the tigers, monkeys and panda. This is one of the great places to visit in Philadelphia.
