We had to search to find this place as there was no signage on the main Parkway or even near the turn off. Tiny sign into the parking lot. But once inside, it is a surprising place. Aside from the zoo sort of odor, it is full of really interesting creatures - some we had never seen before. The staff... More

We loved this zoo and the prices were very reasonable. This was one of our favorite attractions . Sandy , the gift shop lady, was so sweet. We also really liked " Jungle Jim" the guy who performed an animal show. He was hilarious and very entertaining . He also taught us some interesting facts about different animals. The crowd... More

We took a 4 year old and 8 month old to the Rainforest Adventures and they loved it. The goats and outdoor animals were the hit for them both. I personally enjoyed the exotic birds and had quite a deep conversation with one of them. He even followed me to the other side moving from chain to chain with his... More

Stopped by with another couple...small and doable since the other couple was using a walker. Easy to get around. Great for small children. Inside and outside.

This is an amazing little zoo. Coming from a Zookeeper at another facility, I can tell the animals are healthy and extremely well taken care of. The exhibits were very clean, I wouldn't mind sending any one of the animals I take care of at my zoo to go under the care of this staff. In each exhibit they have... More

We were very happy with all of the exhibits. Family run. It was a high point for our trip. The petting zoo was a lot of fun and there are many animals that you just wouldn't see at a lot of attractions like this one.

Very few animals. Bird exhibit is closed. My 15 month old almost fell off the deck in the back because a few rails were missing. Staff didn't seem concerned. One staff member was having a very loud personal conversation behind the counter in the gift shop. All in all, we were there 20 mins. Not worth the small drive from... More

The smell will knock you down before you even get to the door!!! Its the worst smelling "zoo" I've ever come across. We attempted to purchase tickets but after reading reviews and hearing the total of $28 for 2 people I declined tickets. The lady was very rude and yelled at me that they've been there for 15 years and... More
