Great zoo to visit. Kids loved it. As soon as we got in we saw animals right away. We got tickets as part of the Seattle city pass so it was a great deal. Took us about 3 hours to get through most...

This is a wonderful zoo! Each animal is carefully cared for the fullest and you can see it in their behavior. All the staff are very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. The zoo is very easy to navigate as well and the paths are fun to walk through and really add to the environments. It takes me about 3 to 4 hours to walk fully through the place. I like to visit every exhibit though.
Woodland Park Zoo is awesome, we really enjoyed the exhibits and the information they provide. The Dinosaur exhibit (extra cost) was awesome my son absolutely loved it. The facilities where very well kept (food court, rest areas, etc) and the staff was super friendly. We will be going again for sure! Additionally if you're Microsoft don't forget to use your free Prime Card discount. It makes the admission fee extremely affordable.
