Tulsa Zoo reviews
It’s a nice zoo. With grandkids ranging from age 7-16, it kept everyone interested. The Gem Dig was the ultimate fun for them! more »
Wow, this was better than we expected. A wide variety of animals including ones we have never seen at other zoos. Especially like the exhibits and buildings. Thought we were on the set of Raiders..... more »
Tulsa Zoo has done such a nice job revamping the exhibits and creating different programs to engage the community in supporting the zoo. All the animals seem happy and cared for. The new Lost World section is really great! The Coop food is tasty and you can even view the tiger exhibit from the porch area while you're eating. So glad I got a membership this year!
Extremely fun! Don’t have kids? Well who cares. Fun for any age! However please be respectful if you do have kids and watch them. Did see one worker get into an argument with a family because he asked a kid to get down off of something they shouldn’t have been on.
