The animals are up close and personal, but they have great environments that are large and well "furnished". It's easy to do quickly, as a couple we spent about 3.5 hours here.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is one of the most beautiful and clean zoo's I've experienced! The views are breathtaking and the walkways and bathrooms are clean. My favorite exhibit was the giraffes with their feeding station.
