HEllo, I was just wondering which zoo is better....the Denver or the Cheyenne mountain zoo. We are staying in Denver and were going to drive out to the cheyenne mountain zoo in colorado springs, but it seems so far. Is the Denver one any good? thanks

As far as I know, the Denver Zoo is the best in the state. Never been to the Cheyenne Mountain one though. I live in the northwestern corner of CO about 4 hours from Denver.

They are both wonderful zoos denver is cheaper then the springs but its worth the price to go to cheyenne mt zoo if you have time go to both they are totaly different (cheyenne mt is the best though) the aquarium in denver is great as well all the childrens museum and they are right next to eachother

CHEYENNE  MOUNTAIN is EASILY the best. Denver zoo has a bunch of animals I can EASILY see in my backyard...like...a DEER...wtf? LOL!

I love the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, we have yearly passes and go several times in the summer :D And the giraffe pavilion is the BEST most amazing one!

It depends on your time and your tastes.  They are both good zoos.  The one on Cheyenne Mountain is somewhat unique because it is on the side of a mountain, so a lot of your walking is uphill and then back down.  There are also many sights to see around the zoo and Colorado Springs, like the Garden of the Gods.  Colorado Springs is only about an hour from Denver so it is not a long drive, and you might also want to stop in and see the U S Air Force Academy and it's very unique chapel.  The Denver zoo is nice and easy to get around, they also have some educational shows.  The zoo is also close to the Museum of Nature and Science which is a very worthwhile stop - I think the Human Body Show is there now.  It is the 2nd time it has been here and is amazing.
