Colorado Springs is home to America’s ONLY mountain zoo. Located at 6,800 feet above sea level, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo offers breathtaking views of the city and of its 750 animals. The unique design of the Zoo’s animal exhibits gets guests closer than ever before. Hand-feed one of the largest reticulated giraffe herds in the world, watch grizzlies swim with trout, hop next to red-necked wallabies and get hands on with some of the Zoo’s smaller residents in The Loft.

Have a WILD adventure at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – see the animals, ride an antique carousel, eat a gourmet lunch at the Grizzly Grill and ride the Mountaineer Sky Ride to the Zoo’s summit.

Visit 365 days a year for family fun at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.


There are 750 animals!
Unfortunately no. We love animals, but your pets can startle and stress the Zoo animals. Guests with service animals may tour certain areas of the Zoo with their service animals. Please see the Service Animal Map.
Being a mountain zoo, we work hard to ensure that outdoor exhibits and buildings are safe and accessible to all guests. Guests will notice, both our Aquatics building and Primate World are much older buildings, but are still accessible via ramps. As we redevelop and upgrade areas of the Zoo, we are including better ramps and wider paths for easier access and have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on our efforts. Additionally there are tram stops at the entrances to many exhibits around the Zoo – in an effort to help our guests navigate our zoos hilly terrain we operate a shuttle as weather and staffing allows.
We have standard wheelchairs and two-seater strollers for rent at the Stroller Hut just a short ways past the entrance. Wheelchair rental is $15 and strollers are $10.
Yes! You are welcome to bring food into the Zoo, we just ask that you follow a couple of simple rules. No glass. No alcohol. No outside food inside our restaurants. Please don’t feed anything to the animals.
Yes! Admission to the Zoo is for the entire day. Please save your receipt for re-entry.
