    I went here in September of 2013 with my wife when my brother was in town visiting us for the weekend. I’m in the army stationed at Fort Riley and, quite honestly, sometimes it can be hard to find quality things to do around the area, but the Rolling Hills Zoo in nearby Salina is one of the best! Only about an hour drive from Fort Riley, this is a great family friendly place to visit and a zoo that has many different species of animals. I’ve been to many zoos in my life, but I’ll have to admit, this is my favorite so far because of many reasons. First of all, the admission price was very affordable, and I’m pretty sure I even saved more with my military discount rate here. Before you begin touring the actual zoo, there is a museum featuring many life-size dioramas inside the main building. This was probably my favorite and most memorable part of the zoo experience for me when I visited. The dioramas are very well done, and I honestly can’t emphasize that enough! After touring the museum, head out to the actual zoo and see the many, many different kinds of animals they have here. After seeing everything, the zoo also features a nice gift shop that is stocked with items interesting to people of all ages. Factoring in the diorama museum and all the animals they have in the zoo, if you’re stationed here like I am or live locally near the area, this is one of the true gems of entertainment that I’ve found since I got here a few years ago. I can promise one thing, you won’t be disappointed after visiting here!

    Terrific zoo. It really doesn’t deserve to be called a zoo, as the facility is designed with such attention to the animals’ welfare and dignity–making sure they have tons of space to live and move in an authentic habitat, and to the patron’s ability to view the animals and get around easily and comfortably.It’s obvious that the guy who iteratively built the refuge from a barn with a couple bears and a lion into what it is today is someone who really opened his heart and his wallet to build something that is a real treasure in the heart of rural Kansas.Having been to both, I feel Rolling Hills has as beautiful of grounds, and treats the animals with just as much respect, as the Sydney, NSW (Australia) zoo. It’s just a bit smaller (and doesn’t have an ocean view).

    This is an amazing place. It is a beautiful zoo well maintained and filled with great animals. It is quite the attraction in the middle of nowhere and well worth the price. Kansas is lucky to have such an attraction.

    Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure is a great place to visit. A large zoo for a small city with a great variety of animals. The zoo is well organized and the animals are easy to see and photograph. Included in the park is a museum and a restaurant. Highly recommend if you are traveling between Denver and Kansas City on I 70. We first visited in June 09 and made a second visit in August

    We noticed the billboards driving along I-70 and desperately needed a stop for my 20 month old to S-T-R-E-T-C-H! What a pleasant surprise to see a Zoo/Wildlife preserve where the animals are free to roam in large areas. A great selection of rare animals as well as a kid friendly petting area made for a great 2 hour stopover. The cafe has healthy salad and sandwich options. Make sure you add this to your list of places to stop heading E or W on I-70!
