Attraction Spotlight: Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has one goal and that is to inspire action by connecting people with wildlife. They do this by providing a variety of different activities that are designed to be both fun and educational. One of the activities you will have access to include the Zoo Exploration Tours. These tours will literally take you for a walk on the wild side.
Someone from the Zoo's education department will take you on a journey you will never forget. All tours give you the opportunity to meet an animal up close and personal. In some cases you may even get some hands on experience. As far as tours go, you can either choose from a set of topics or you can create your own.
