I had a great time taking my grandson Brantley, my mom and my son for Saturday fun day at the Zoo Atlanta. Brantley who is 3 years old enjoy all the special rides, train rides, carousel and other attractions. The cost for children is $16.99 which is pretty high on top of that we had to purchase a ticket for $9 to ride the attractions. When a family has 3 of more little ones it can cost them a lot for a day at the zoo but for us it was a lot of fun and we truly enjoyed it.

This was a pretty good zoo. My favorite part was the orangutan area. I like that they break it up by regions. It was well maintained, and it was pretty easy to find parking on the street.

The Atlanta Zoo is the best! I've been to several of their events geared towards young professionals - Brew at the Zoo and Wild on the Rocks. Walking around the zoo without kids there is super fun. The pandas are the cutest and we even saw the lion cubs playing with their dad one night. I love the keeper talks they do, make sure to check those out!

It stinks and smells. There's no talk of conservation. The poor animals look so sad and depressed. I've been to many Zoos where animals are happier and active. It would be fantastic if the employees didn't take up the majority of the parking spaces in the main parking lot. Maybe they should park on the street. Selfish. Also employees love being on their cellphones when they think no one is looking. The splash pad reeks of chlorine to the severity that children's eyes were bloodshot. Stay away!

Got in with the city pass and that was great! Was told we could buy tickets for the elephant feeding at the elephant exhibit.... Circled around for an hour and 45 minutes finally saw some one across the elephant pit and they said tickets were sold out. I had called at 1:00 to see where they were and the lady said it was 1:45 and I could get tickets there. 2 people said there were open spaces and guess what hours wasted 3 carousel rides later and we didn't feed elephants. All they had to do was check for open spots and not tell me there was when...Read More

Got in with the city pass and that was great! Was told we could buy tickets for the elephant feeding at the elephant exhibit.... Circled around for an hour and 45 minutes finally saw some one across the elephant pit and they said tickets were sold out. I had called at 1:00 to see where they were and the lady said it was 1:45 and I could get tickets there. 2 people said there were open spaces and guess what hours wasted 3 carousel rides later and we didn't feed elephants. All they had to do was check for open spots and not tell me there was when there wasn't and we could have at least fed the turtles but we missed that waiting around for the elephants. The lady I delt with via phone(not in person) didn't seem to care and her sorry ' s sounded fake. She did nothing to make this better or offer anything for all the screw ups HER people made. Then a zoo volunteer who heard everything that happened followed me outside and said how sorry she was and how messed up the lady was. She then offered to walk us around and tell us all about the animals.We said we appreciated it but we were in a bit of a hurry now and she went on her way. 20 minutes later she found us with some one who worked there and said this lady was great and she wanted to make things better as best she could. So she took us to a spot had us sit and brought out the cutest bunny (my girls didn't wanna touch a snake or lizard) so she found a bunny named pumpernickle. Things got better after that. I just wish we hadn't wasted hours because we could have been to our hotel before 10:00 and my girls could have gone swimming.
