"RAIN FOREST ADVENTURES"
July, 2018
Our grandchildren have wanted to visit the Rain Forest for the past 5 years. They love the animals inside and outside and love to feed them. The show is also great. My grandson has been chosen to participate twice over the years. We would highly recommend a visit.

Tip: Plan on taking your time to enjoy all the animals and find out what time the show is on your visit. Worth the time.

"Smell is terrible"

Purchased our tickets on Groupon. As soon as you opened the door to the entrance the ammonia smell is sickening. Spent 15 minutes walking around inside then went outside to see outdoor animals. Not a “Zoo”. Save your money. Very sad place.
