  • This is our favorite zoo in the US! My son and I have been here a few times, and it gets better with each visit. There are so many unique animals and exhibits.

Both the train and sky lift rides are a fun break from the heat, and the splash pad is so much fun. Worth the trip to Omaha just for the zoo!
  • Amazing zoo and aquarium. Plenty to see and do. Definitely an all day adventure. Exhibits are all well maintained, though some are undergoing renovations for next year. The Ghouls and Glow event was definitely a great event as well. The lantern area in the Children's Maze was awesome.
