The new aquarium is absolutely delightful. Sharks swimming over head, penguins putting on a show, sea turtles- everything. The zoo has a train, a tram and an air ride. The rides are open subject to weather and wind conditions.

There are so many animals it's almost too much for one day. Grounds were clean and well manicured. Animals looked healthy. Plenty of options for riding and seeing the animals if you don't feel like walking.

Nice zoo with free parking, a really nice aquarium (unusual to have ANY aquarium in a zoo) and rainforest exhibit. My big complaint is many of the attractions are closed on weekdays outside of peak summer season. I understand why certain exhibits would be closed...More

Once again, we visited the Omaha Zoo. It has an amazing amount of animals and exhibits. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed it! The only negative comments I can say is that the maps are not the best and the zoo overall could use more specific signs....More

The Trolley ride is really great to get an overview of the zoo and let you know which area you want to go back to.
