  • Better than it looks from the outside. When you hear Zoo you think open air and when you first pull up to this place you see what I consider to be a medium sized building. Don't let that fool you. It's actually a pretty good-sized place and it took us about two hours to get through it. There are a lot of really interesting animals to look at and the staff was fantastic.
  • My family bought a Groupon deal for this place. Knowing that most places in Pigeon Forge are tourist traps, I had low expectations. Boy was I glad to be wrong! RainForest Adventures is actually quite nice. They do not have an overwhelming number of animals, but what they do have, are kept up nice. Animals were active and kids loved the feeding area. Enclosures were clean with a lot of staff on hand to answer questions. For kids aged 2-10, this is DEFINITELY worth your time. Was very impressed and will be back next year.
  • Great zoo for all ages. They have mostly small animals inside, with a petting/feeding area outside that has sheep, goats and emus. Place was very clean and easy to walk through. Price is very reasonable. Definitely worth a trip if you have kids that love small animals or feeding the above mentioned larger ones.
  • My daughter had a blast feeding the animals. She didn't want to stop. She actually kept giving the animals hug through the fence. A nice place to visit. Its small enough for us to keep her busy but not lost.
  • Great price. Nice people. A little small. Need more animals. Bigger ones would be great. Great for smaller kids just watch the outside animals they do bite.
