Located in the heart of the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, near both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, the RainForest Zoo is open year round. Mixing fun with education the RainForest has been themed by one of the nation’s finest zoological contractors, whose work includes Animal Kingdom at Disney World.
RainForest is perfect for any season or any weather, we feature both indoor and outdoor exhibits!
Featuring over 400 live animals, representing over 130 species, we are home to unique and beautiful creatures from the Rain Forests of the world.
2014 features two new species of monkeys from the jungles of South America.
A petting zoo that is chock full of goats, sheep and lots of other surprises awaits the whole family, remember to bring your cameras!
The exhibits were quite small, however it was mostly indoor(which is great during the summer), a large school group showed up and it became very crowed I wish they had mentioned it before so we could have gotten there earlier, but they did offer to reschedule however it was our last day. Overall the adventure was pretty good, lots of species. My 5 year old son loved it.
Tip: Call a couple days in advance to be aware of field trips.

This place is small and cramped. The amount of animals is very very small! It was not very expensive but wasnt worth a penny more. It cost more, but dollar for dollar go to the zoo!!!!
Tip: Not very fun, Zoo is the way to go

My husband and her two children went and let me tell you it was so overpriced you could have went to a very small local aquarium and had more fun.
Tip: Smells awful. No one was there. Bird exhibit is awful

It wasn't much of an adventure. Upon entering the facility there was an overwhelming ammonia smell. I understand the animals are contained indoors, but this was much worse than expected. Then the employee pointed to a pathway and said go ahead it's self guided. There were many exotics but again it looked as though the funding may be depleting as far as maintenance of the facility. If you actually interacted with your patrons and had more of a guided experience, the attraction could bring additional needed revenues.
