Perched atop 140 acres rising 6,800 feet above sea level, this is America’s only mountain zoo. Leading the pack in conservation, captive breeding, and animal care, this family-friendly, non-profit Top 10 Colorado Springs landmark will leave you howling for more. With more than 950 animals, (including the largest herd of giraffes at any zoo), exhibits, rides, historical attractions, hands-on experiences (like feeding the giraffes!), and the Will Rogers Shrine at the very top, you’re sure to have a wild time! Open daily 9 AM – 5 PM, last admission at 4 PM.
