Everyone;s biggest complaint is that you have to walk so much to get around this zoo - but I think that's part of what makes it great, Also the Elephant walk is pretty amazing and the Giraffe encounter is pretty special. Lots to see,

We enjoyed the zoo trip. It’s nearby to our house. The exhibits are animal friendly especially the wolf’s exhibit. However, the zoos layout requires a lot of walking

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.
