I came to this place because they have red pandas. I was impressed with the amount of space certain animals got. However some animals got less than seems adequate. The red panda looked a little lonely but I enjoyed watching Novas feeding! Their price was half off for the zoos birthday which was very fun and they had cake! I’m not sure why they breed in captivity when this is not necessarily red panda climate.

Small but very nice zoo. The animals are well cared for, and I love that the zoo participates in conservation programs that help endangered species. The zoo is laid out well and is well maintained, and there are great views of the valley from various lookout points. The employees are always friendly. We have a membership and love to visit. My son loves the Zoo Choo!

Mill Mountain Zoo is an amazing part of Roanoke. This is fun for all ages. The parking is free. There are many types of animals from reptiles, to cats, to an amazing bird enclosure. There is also the zoo train that runs every hour on the hour and is really fun. The bathrooms are clean and the staff is friendly.

My son had his birthday party here; reasonable rate, nice venue, and accommodating staff. Good amount of things to see and do. The shelter is out of the way, yet close you the aviary and otter/porcupine exhibit, so it's easy to see some "critters". Big shout out to the Zoo Choo for opening up to us, and giving all our birthday party people a nice ride around the zoo. We'll definitely go back, and you should think about taking a day to visit!

Brought my daughter and grandson. It's a nice little zoo. Just wish the wolves and cougar and eagle we're available to see. As far as the price it's reasonable I'm sure the cost goes toward the up keep and care of animals. If your looking for a big zoo this isn't for you. This is more for lil ones learning about animals. Staff is super friendly and location is great just up the road from where I live. We had a blast making memories. As far as the enclosures I did not see any that seemed to be too small for the animals
