    Initially I posted my review on Yelp. I was notified today by Yelp that my review was removed, apparently because Dallas Zoo management does not like my honest review. I gave the following review and the actual facts that were published in the public news channels.Very disorganized and mismanaged place. Every time when I hear their animal gets out, it concerns me about the safety. I wonder how well organized the place is. News that show how Dallas Zoo is disorganized and mismanaged:1. August 5, 2014: Bear Escapes Texas Zoo, No One Hurt, http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2014/08/05/texas-zoo-locked-down-after-bear-escapes-habitat/2. November 18, 2013: Lion Kills Lioness In Attack At Dallas Zoo That Stuns Visitors, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/18/lion-attack-dallas-zoo-lioness-killed_n_4296207.html3. August 6, 2014: Mono-Fail: Dallas Zoo Monorail Rescue, http://cw33.com/2014/08/06/mono-fail-dallas-zoo-monorail-rescue/4. March 18, 2004: A 340-pound gorilla named Jabari breaks out of its enclosure at the Wilds of Africa exhibit at the Dallas Zoo and goes on a 40-minute rampage through a forest, snatching up a toddler with his teeth and attacking three other people before being shot to death by officers.–I have to say I am really disappointed that Yelp succumb to corporate pressure and disallow people/consumer telling the truth!Continued disallowing people telling the truth does not help the zoo improve their management nor will help Yelp to be an honest online review site.Just my two cents.

    First off, I am not the worlds biggest zoo fan. Its just not my favorite place to visit. That said, of all the zoos I have visited this one was average. We took our two sons for their first zoo trip. The Dallas facilities are fine but could use a little upgrading in my opinion. My favorite animal, the tiger, was nowhere to be seen. The elephant exhibit was OK, they were a bit far off as they were under some shade, understandably. The giraffe feeding exhibit let’s you get up close and personal with them. My son and I experienced a giraffe sneeze! I wouldn’t pay the five bucks for giraffe food though. There were plenty of people there to do if for us. As stated in other reviews, lots of walking involved. My toddler was finished after an hour. Bring a stroller or you can rent one there for a few bucks. The monorail was closed on our visit. I’m not sure I would have ridden it anyway. Overall a fun experience. We found discount tickets so the price was good.

    Having been to the Houston zoo plus Dallas aquarium I feel the Dallas zoo could be a great zoo but there are a few problems.First the good things, I feel the lion and cheetah exhibits plus Giraffe and aviary are nice and love how close you can get to the animals. Plus the feedings/encounters are a nice touch for photos. Also get there early or wait until 4:30 before seeing the Texas Cats, they are either sleeping or waiting for the sun to go down before becoming animated. I was taken aback by the early closing time also, just when it started feeling nice it is 5:00 and time to leave. Other zoos stay open till 7:00 or even 8:00pm.Now the negatives, if you go prepare to walk! This place is huge but it doesn’t do much with the space provided. It feels like these enclosures are big which is nice for the animals but not for viewing them.Also there is little to no cover/shade so be ready and wear a cap and bring the sunblock. Also the monorail was a bit of a let down. It is nice to sit down and see the animals from another POV but there is no A/C in the passenger cars plus it def. looks it’s age.The reptile and insect buildings need to take a page from other zoos on presentation. And lastly the monorail is not worth the price IMO but if you have kiddos they will get a kick out of it. The Dallas zoo is one of the oldest in Texas and is still worth the visit but go in early and prepare yourself for the elements.

    I enjoyed going to the Dallas Zoo. It was a very fun experience in my opinion!! I saw alot of animals. I like various kinds of animals!! Its alot of walking!! Make sure you wear a hat, take a water bottle and wear tennis shoes!! I wanted to see the lions but maybe they were hiding or with the vets. The food is too expensive!! The animals environment was pretty awesome!! I would enjoy going back during the Fall or Spring season!!
