I was expecting maybe some cascading waterfall like in most of the rainforest areas I've visited. I felt sorry for the animals. The fish aquarium had algae all over it. The small areas where you could lean forward and look in more had spider webs. Saw one large cockroach on glass looking to get inside of one cage. Spiderwebs inside... More

We have been visiting down here for years and never knew this was here. The last posters have apparently never been around live animals or reptiles to complain about the odor or insects. No the air conditioning isn't running wide open because these are warm climate animals and reptiles, Like the sign says, Rain Forest, not the arctic circle. The... More

We bought a Groupon or Living Social for this attraction. We saved several hours to visit it one day. Upon arrival, the smell was so bad, we couldn't stand to stay very long. In my opinion, the habitats were lacking in every way. Will not visit again.

These poor animals deserve a better place to live. As soon as we walked in there was a horrible smell, which is normal for a zoo but as we were walking through the zoo half the animals looked dead or miserable. DO NOT GO HERE. This place needs to be shut down!!

Worst experience I have ever had. The owner deserves a place in hell. The animals deserve better than the bug ridden cages that they were stuffed in. I don't know how anyone with a heart could look at these suffering marvels of nature and enjoy it.

The best attraction in the area! A very pleasant surprise. I have taken my family to many Zoo's before, but none will equal or come close to the experience we had here. Run by professional and VERY nice staff, our Adventure was both entertaining and informative. A VERY clean environment. The exhibits were artistically created with a flair for the... More

The animals are clearly stressed. The cages are not maintained at all. The animals out back are living in their own fecal matter the sight was disgusting. My daughter slipped and fell in chicken poo, and the animals are clearly neglected.

My son loves all types of Animals...so he really enjoyed the visit. Just beware when you first enter the zoo there is a smell...which is expected with it being an inside zoo...but after a few minutes your nose will adjust! My son enjoyed petting the baby goats. It was kind of hot the day we were there so some of... More

Everyone seems to talk about the goats but to me, the real attraction was the number of lizards and snakes. There are some that are brightly colored and truly amazing to look at. There is also a parrot area but beware--if you sing to them, one bird in particular is a music critic!!!!

I have never seen such an entertaining presentation -- the show incorporated animal facts, humor, and magic. We want to see it again!! I can only assume the bad reviews came from folks who did not see the show, which also offers the opportunity to touch a large number of animals.
