Bronx Zoo Reviews
Aunque es algo costoso el tiquete, vale la pena. Es muy grande así que procure llegar tan pronto abran el zoológico o planee la visita para al menos dos días. Muy recomendable en sus viajes a New York... more »Although the ticket is expensive, it's worth it. It's very big so try to get there as soon as you open the zoo or plan your visit for at least two days. Highly recommended on your trips to New York.
We watch The Zoo on Animal Planet which is a behind-the-scenes at the Bronx Zoo and were excited to visit. It did not disappoint! We live in Chicago where there are 2 wonderful zoos - Lincoln Park and... more »
This Zoo was amazing! I loved how open and spacious everything was. The animals truly had room to move and live. Yes some of them were hard to see, but animal welfare comes first here, and I appreciate that. We went on a Saturday and even though it was full when we came in, the crowd was never a problem. I would highly recommend the full experience. Jungle World and the Congo experiences were amazing! And you get souvenir cups which were free to refill on the day we were there. I would highly recommend this Zoo and I would say that you need to carve out a significant amount of time to explore. We will definitely be back when our son can walk a little better so he can experience it too.
Went with my family and friends this past weekend and had a great time ! So glad we have such an awesome place to being our children to to learn about animals and nature . There are so many fun things to do from zip lining to an animated dinosaur safari. Can't wait to go back during the holidays and see the zoo all decked out !
