The Cleveland Zoo is free on Monday to residents of Cuyahoga County. Don’t miss feeding the lettuce leaves to the giraffes. They come right up to you which is a highlight of the visit. The Zoo is spread out and the tram rides are free..

The price for an all inclusive ticket is $23.50. This includes admission to the zoo AND rainforest, rides on the train in the Australian exhibit, the 4-D movies and a zoo key with a lanyard. Hope this helps.

It doesn't go all the way around the zoo, but it does take to you to the cats & primates. There is an extra charge for the train. When I went no one checked our tickets.
