July, 2018
Our grandchildren have wanted to visit the Rain Forest for the past 5 years. They love the animals inside and outside and love to feed them. The show is also great. My grandson has been chosen to participate twice over the years. We would highly recommend a visit.

Very nice, indoors, sweet animals. The small monkeys were our favorites, great for a family. I do recommend buying pet feed at the desk or take a lot of quarters. The facility was clean but the cat cage does have an odor.

The first thing you are hit with is the smell when you walk in, which can be expected. If I didn't have a Groupon discount, I probably wouldn't have paid the price. On the other hand, I understand the costs of their facilities. Feeding the goats and sheep outside was probably the most fun we had. It was a self-guided exhibition with plaques containing information. I would have liked to had personal contact with the animals with a staff member. They have a large gift shop as well.

Fun stop and good time. Great little place to visit. Inexpensive and a good distraction from shopping. The staff were friendly and helpful. Got a deal on Groupon for entry and a bag of food for the outside animals. Well worth a stop.
