We recently visited the zoo to see the newer exhibits. For our large family, it can be quite costly. We would visit much more often if it were not for that. While we were there, we picked up information on becoming a zoo member, and expect that we will do that soon.
So my review would not only be in regard to a nice zoo, well cared for, but also in an effort to encourage you to check out the membership rates. For a large family, it's nice because some memberships specify a family of "two adults two kids" etc. This one includes all children under 21. This is exceptionally nice as my oldest son is 19, he often takes the younger children for activities such as this.
Previously we had been gifted a membership for a year and we used it a LOT. What a wonderful gift idea!!!
There is a HUGE list of reciprocal zoos who honor the Sedgwick County Pass for admission to theres.
The household membership is $69 a year. For an extra $20 you can get a family "plus one" that allows for a guest at each visit. There are also many different rates for grandparents, single parent homes etc.
A bargain by any measure! It cost us over 35 for one days visit, so it would pay for itself if you used it twice.
