You will have to purchase a ticket to the Zoo to get to this one. It is part of the Zoo complex now. It is an interesting tribute to one of America's most famous humorists.

Amazing views from the top of the tower. If you're going to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, entrance to the road that goes up to the Shrine is included in your admission fee.

to travel to this shrine you have to take a very curvy road and you better are not scared of heights because the road is narrow up to the shrine, when going there you will travel through the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo area

Weird getting to ... you actually drive THROUGH the zoo where people are walking to get to it. If you can climb several flights of stairs, you are rewarded with amazing views. Pictures in small rooms on the way up.
