  • Always love going here and one of the best things about Omaha, and a must-see if you're not from here! The desert dome is perfect to go in when it's beginning of Spring or in Fall time honestly due to it getting so hot. My boyfriend and I walked the whole zoo in about half a day, being able to enjoy everything and this was when it was still under construction, about mid March. He is from California and says he's likes this zoo way more than San Diego Zoo. We are currently planning to go back sometime, its great experience and exercise! Recently went with my nanny kids too and they always have a blast when going, mainly stayed in the area with the small 'town' , as they call it, popcorn was great and staff was friendly and quick. A must see is always the aquarium, I will never get over the amazing tunnel of ocean above my head, my nanny kids were happy to see turtles in there. Thanks for being a great zoo and I can't wait to take my kids someday here.
  • Omaha has a lot to offer especially for people wanting something within a few hours for a weekend. You can easily make a day out of only the things near the entrance. The desert dome is warm (oh, you guessed that?) and surprisingly quiet and not packed. The jungle is really cool. The food there is above average as well and having an aquarium even if it isn’t the best on I have seen, being built into the zoo is really cool.
