Well worth the trip. Kind of hard to find and a bit hilly to get to. We enjoyed ourselves. The $5 extra charge for the photo with the birds was worth every bit. We fed many of the birds in the main area. Bring quarters for the machines to get food to feed the birds. Don't forget to visit the... More

We were staying in the Pigeon Forge area for a week and wanted to visit an attraction that was different from the normal "touristy" things to do. Parrot Mountain fit that bit perfectly. I'm not normally fond of birds but was it turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. We spent the extra $15 to have our family picture... More

We decided to take the kids here as well as my in-laws. My father in-law can't walk well and they had a golf cart to pick him up and take him to the front gate. Then when we paid for the tickets they told us we can rent a golf cart so he was able to enjoy it with us... More

There's enough interesting history to keep the parents engaged and enough hands-on with the birds to keep the kids entertained. I was a little disappointed that in the area that we were able to touch the birds that 60% or so of them had signs warning me not to feed or pet them because I might get bit. I was... More

We went there in early July, it right next to Dollywood. the drive to the top of Parrot Mountain is cvrazy steep, it could make you dizzy. The price was about $16 a person. THey have tons of birds but a lot of repeats (macaws, etc.) I took about 40 minutes to walk it, but that's because we stop to... More

I had never heard of Parrot Mountain until we attended a free "show" at my mother's timeshare last summer. My sons (age 5 and 7 at the time) loved the show, so we purchased tickets and went to check it out. I wasn't expecting much, but we were all pleasantly surprised. The grounds were wonderful, and it wasn't awfully crowded... More

My family and I went and really enjoyed it. The birds are just amazing. So glad we went. Very awesome Christian place. The drive up the mountain was rough and the incline of the walking is rough, I can understand the walking incline because it is the mountain. But the driveway up needs fixed. We really enjoyed and we are... More

Maybe I wasn't expecting much but I was blown away! Besides the fact that the gardens are exceptionally well-done, you are able to see over 400 parrots. About the middle of the walking path, you have a parrot encounter. There are probably 50 birds or more you can pet, feed and allow to walk al over you-bigger birds for adults... More

Just a beautiful place. So cool to get to see the birds up close. My toddler was a little scared of the birds and the noises they can make but all in all it was still a great experience. We loved getting to take a family photo with the birds. It's one of the best family pics ever!!!
