Great time!!

They have a wide variety of animals... some we had never seen or heard of before which blew our minds! For a couple hours of entertainment, it was a good price! We loved that we had opportunities to speak with the caregivers there and also had some up close interactions with the animals. We will be back!

Such a wonderful experience!!

Prior to our most recent trip to Gatlinburg, I had never been to the Rainforest Adventures Zoo. After it's discovery, my son and I fell in love with it! The the tickets are very reasonable! Everyone was so nice and welcoming. They had the cutest animals and it was just an overall amazing experience. I will return again soon! :)

Fun loaded trip

Have been several times with my children on school field trips. All my children as well as my husband and I enjoyed the adventure. The show at the beginning was very exciting with the guide showing certain animals and letting the children interact in the show. Walking thru the animal exhibits was great as well. Will go again!!!

RainForest is a MUST

This place never disappoints. My family enjoys doing this every year we come to the area. It has become a family tradition that we will continue for years to come.

RainForest Adventures was a HUGE hit with the grand babies and adults.

This place is amazing. We go to many Zoo's with the grand babies and their parents. The kids were so excited the second we walked in the door. Thank you for doing what you do. This is something we will do every time we visit The Great Smokey Mountains.

Great place for kids!

We visited with a handicapped child in w/c with the school. It is one of the few handicapped places she could go with her class that she could do all activities. It was great. I have a pic of her with her hand on the glass with a lemur with his hand on hers. It's a precious and very treasured memory we have.
