Situated on a mountain, high above the city of Colorado Springs, is the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Enjoy spectacular views and up close encounters with some of the animals. While there be sure to visit the Will Rogers Shrine, high above the zoo. Access is included with your admission. Remember to ask about the Sky Ride (chair lift) tickets at the gate. Otherwise, if you want to ride it you will have to come all the way back down to the main entrance to purchase them.
