My kids love the zoo especially the Apes
Cafeteria food quality is much better than last time we visited the zoo, friendly and knowledgeable staff, cute baby flamingo, it just I still feel sad that the animals have to be captivated instead stay in the wild, and for me the space for animals looks way too small compared to other zoo, it looks like the animals get distressed walking back and forth seems like they're looking for way out.
This is such a great zoo, especially for small children. We did use the picnic area for our lunch. We especially liked the close encounters with the giraffes, my granddaughter was thrilled to feed leaves to them.
I was most impressed with the activities to do at the Sacramento Zoo. The day we went was very hot, 106 degrees. But there were plenty of places to have lunch in the shade with all the picnic tables they have. I was able to pack a picnic and eat the food I brought. It was a nice day!!
Honestly had I paid full price for the tickets I would have been a little upset. It's very small and very packed! And VERY expensive! We walked the whole thing in just a little over an hour. My opinion is that its very over rated!
It's not as fun for me as before, I used to come to the zoo in the 50's to present. It has changed. Does not have the animals it used to have. However it is always clean. And the people are so pleasant. I know times have changed about how animals are caged and such. Activist and such. But I appreciate how you are trying to keep it alive.
Coupon was good and the zoo was nice
Amazing day. Love the attention given to the habitats of the animals. Also the zookeeper chats..feeding the giraffe s and the live animal show were unexpected and amazing.
Awesome deal. Great place for the kids.
Saw good improvement overall. The vet was in and shared a check up with us thru the window on his patient, a snake.
The giraffe display was really good our four year old granddaughter loved it.
There was an employee under a tent near the exit with a parakeet and that was a lot of fun to interact and ask questions

The growl of lions and tigers will be replaced by the growls of guitars as the Sactopalooza Spring Party lights up the Sacramento Zoo with music from tribute bands and DJ Rigatony. No Duh blasts a high-energy pop set based on the music of No Doubt with a number of visuals, costumes, and props from the band’s music videos. Nominated for Best Tribute Band at the 2010 San Diego Music Awards, the Red Not Chili Peppers fill the air with classic funk-rock melodies and the four-chord password that grants entry to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to the concerts, attendees can partake in hands-on activities such as mechanical bull riding and gladiator jousting with foam poles.
The Sactopalooza Spring Party is the largest annual fundraising event for the Active 20-30 Club of Sacramento. This group of 20- to 30-year-old volunteers works year-round to improve the lives of local children with special needs. In addition to raising funds for children, the group organizes hands-on events to interact with children at an annual picnic, winter clothing drives, and a holiday party at the UC Davis cancer center. Proceeds from the party helps support these events and the organization’s work with children throughout the region.
