Lots to see and do a very large variety of animals. The Hogle Zoo is impressive, and it's staffed by some very amazing people who care deeply about the animals.

The birds and the Tigers with the giant bouncing play balls are allot of fun. Hogle Zoo is a worthy stop all the way!

Fun place to remove stress and be a kid again. Sunshine and animals bring smiles to all ages. Zoo is accessible for strollers and wheelchairs.

Took the grandkids here for the Boolight event. Had so much fun. Highlights included the guided tour of nocturnal animals and the tigers. The light displays and music throughout the zoo were fun. Particularly enjoyed Warren Zevon. Grandboys had a blast!

Other reviewers commented that this was a smaller zoo and it is, but still worth visiting. I was surprised at how many animals were out--many more than other zoos I've visited, and they were active too! They probably like the cooler temps and lower humidity...More

Tickets are $17 per adult. I have been to Omaha zoo which is $20 per adult and it's about 5 times the Hogle Zoo. Hogle zoo is not worth the price. I wouldn't mind if it was around $8-9.

I'd agree with Carrie D. on the rolling paths. I suspect you can see most of the critters on the flattest parts of the zoo, though. I'd contact the zoo directly, if you're thinking of trying to reserve a cart and ask the... More
