Some featured exhibits include Cat Forest/Lion Overlook, which comprises of lions, tigers, jaguars and leopards, and Great EscApe that showcases gorillas, orangutans and chimpanzees. One of the zoo's most popular attractions is Aquaticus, which features aquariums, and shows by a dolphin and sea lions. The zoo offers nature classes, labs, tours and Zoomobiles for all ages. You can end the day with a show under the stars at the amphitheater.
We stopped here with our 15 month old baby. We didn't expect a huge complex. We were expecting a little hometown zoo. It is entirely more than that. The exhibits of all the different animals were great. Disapointly though the elephant was in Tulsa on a date. But the primate exhibit was good. As well as the local group of animals you have in the barn exhibit, you don't usually see local animals, especially common ones at a zoo. This made it that much more special. There is a lot of walking in between exhibit though.
Great midwestern zoo!
I'm from Tulsa, and we pride ourselves on how great our zoo is, but when i came here last year i was greatly surprised. this is a zoo that you can go to do do many other things than i could imagine. and there were actual employees everywhere. which at the Tulsa zoo you don't get that. we went in the summer, yes the hot hot Oklahoma summer, but to my surprise, they have misters that you can turn on and mist yourself and cool yourself off. they had an expansive assortment of animals. the whole zoo was very unique, and fun and very very large. i was so impressed! my family and i really enjoyed ourselves........it is most refreshing, and we will defiantly be going back!
Willie Nelson put on a Great show. It should never have been at the Zoo Amphitheatre. The people that paid for expressline tickets were told that the extra $5 a ticket was to get good seats. Well, the regular ticket holders rushed to the front of the amphitheatre and Stood during the entire concert. They were not made to sit down and everyone in their path was stepped on! It was Horrible! Never again will I Ever go back there!
