"2010 Year of the TIGER"
Love those adored zoo animals
What they do with those Zebras that Died any memorial?


The grandparent pass is the best kept secret at the zoo. My kids love being able to go see the animals when the urge strikes even if it is just a short stay to see the tiger cubs or the baby elephant or giraffe. Often that's all little ones have the patience for and we don't feel like we have to struggle through the entire zoo just to get our moneys worth.


My wife and I have made it a tradition to go to the zoo on Valentine's Day. It is really nice to be there with so few people. One year when we went we saw a total of five people. That includes the person that sold us our tickets and the two workers we saw walking around. Another good thing is that the animals are more active. We only go to the zoo in the winter.

Family Man

We almost went to the zoo yesterday, but it was raining. I still wanted to go, but I got voted down. So we went to an indoor "fun" center. Just as expensive, with more germs and no educational value... woot.


The best time to go to the zoo is in the winter.

Been there Only once.n`Spring

Those animals are so cute,everything about the Zoo
is fun to go out to.Need to visit again :)



I would rather B` there n Winter

(In summertime Utah is 90 outside)

Great outing!

The zoo is lots of fun and a great place to go in the winter if you are dressed properly. I do think Hogle should lower their prices a bit in the winter as some of the "attractions" are closed. Last week, for example, the train wasn't running, the penguins were not on view, animal fountains covered up, etc.

Let the animals go

Hogle Zoo is nothing more than an animal prison. I have no problem with a place like San Deigo Zoo and wild animal park because its big enough and well stocked to provide a quality environment for the animals but Hogle isn't. Hogle is so small and confined that the animals are miserable are so are the people.



@Ditto..I Love Hogo Zoo

I believe that they
are Happy zoo Animals..Even more fun with a Family
to take and see the Happy Gleam :p

I love Hogle Zoo, too. I also miss the beautiful Zebras. I'm wondering if they will soon be getting some new striped horses for everyone to enjoy?
