Bronx Zoo Reviews
Aunque es algo costoso el tiquete, vale la pena. Es muy grande así que procure llegar tan pronto abran el zoológico o planee la visita para al menos dos días. Muy recomendable en sus viajes a New York... more »Although the ticket is expensive, it's worth it. It's very big so try to get there as soon as you open the zoo or plan your visit for at least two days. Highly recommended on your trips to New York.
We watch The Zoo on Animal Planet which is a behind-the-scenes at the Bronx Zoo and were excited to visit. It did not disappoint! We live in Chicago where there are 2 wonderful zoos - Lincoln Park and... more »
Great zoo with lots to see. Watching the sea lions being fed was fun and interesting. There is a good mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits and many of the indoor exhibits allow strollers but some do require you to park outside. The carousel ride was fun for the kids too. Also: They do allow outside food and there is plenty of chill spots for a picnic in case you don't want to spend more money on food.
We took a group of young couples from our church and it was a nice time! Not as many animals as thought would see but it was a really warm day and good fellowship! Got 10% off when purchased online tickets, overall a great experience and will be returning again. I heard the zoo is free on Wednesday’s so definitely will come back for the freebies! Thank you Bronx Zoo!
