There is a lot to see in this location. Despite some reviews when I visited the animals seemed to be in good spirits and well looked after.

"Horrendous conditions for all of the animals! Incredibly sad."
July, 2016
This is a cash machine profiting from keeping wild animals in tiny glass cages indoors, with no natural sunlight or fresh air. The enclosures are far to small for any of the creatures, and they are all just lethargic; no place to adequately move around. It is truly upsetting to see this taking place. Save your money and don't support this type of cruelty. It is very heart wrenching.
Tip: Awful living conditions for animals, very short experience for the money, hard to see animals indoors in glass boxes with no sunlight and no fresh air.

"Ok"

It had a very harsh smell that made it very hard to make through the building but other than that they have lots to look at and the animals seem very well kept.

We really enjoyed it. I loved watching my 2 granddaughter look around and they picked out a few things to take home with them and still talk about going back next year.

"Sad"
January, 2016
When I visited the RainForest in December 2015 it made my heart ache, and I still think about the animals. I thought the area was way to small for most of the animals. I especially felt sorry for the large snakes in their cage with no room to move. Most of the animals looked as if they had no live in them. I contacted PETA about the conditions the animals were living in. I hope someone cares enough to help them.

My family has been coming here for years and this is the first time we had been here. This is a nice little zoo. Had lemurs, birds, snakes, etc. Had a little petting area where you could feed some goats and donkeys and emus. Would definitely recommend if you have small children.

Visiting from out of town and saw the bird in our hotel lobby. My kids loved Robbie and wanted to check out the rainforest adventures due to the constant rain. Plenty to see and it was great to know so many of the animals were exotic animal rescues.

Great place to go and see animals you can't see at other zoos. Went there on the way home from our stay in Gatlinburg and there was no one else there. Really great for taking our time and having a good look at all of the animals. They offer all day admissions so when you buy the ticket you can come back and see the shows for free with the wristband they give you. Very nice staff and a very clean facility. 5/5 Must visit if you love seeing animals!

I work with animals and was so impressed. Rainforest Adventures is the perfect size to take kids, to hold their attention. The rock facade throughout is beautifully done and animal displays are well thought out for viewing and animal comfort. Playing pee-a-boo with the monkeys, being memorized by the python's, and watching the large spur thigh tortoises stroll about were some of my highlights.
