They have a bunch of interesting animals, but they have a parrot that sings and swings upside down. The kids will love this. They also have an outside petting area with a few animals.

Great place! Enjoyed watching the animals - Especially anything in the monkey family. There's also a petting zoo section where you can hand feed some. We spent about 2 hours here. So glad we went. They also have. Nice gift shop. Easy in and out. Handicap accessible. Air conditioned. Places to sit along the way if ya need to.

We visit Rainforest Adventures every time we come to Tennessee. We enjoy seeing all of the animals and interacting with some of them. All of the employees are pleasant and knowledgeable.

"Loved the place, except the lady."

I liked the place, I didn't see the poor conditions that others seen, or said. We were there early so the animals we getting breakfast and it seemed fresh and colorful. We saw a worker interacting with some of the monkees and the were hopping on her shoulder and the animals and her seemed like they were having a good time together. The goats are fun to feed, but watch out, the have learned to rip the bottom of your bag out so all the feed falls. Smart little boogers. The only complaint I have is the groupon and this place. We are from a larger city, but if you want to use a groupon on your phone here in TN at this place, you have to have your own wifi. They do not. So print off your groupon before you go, unless you do. They will not offer to look up your stuff, and the do not have the little groupon tablet that many of the larger citys have. For instance, at KY down under, the type your name in the groupon machine and BAM! They have your stuff and you go. Fantastic. This place...you will be going to McDonald's, pinning it to your screen and coming back. PS. Books a million across the street has free Wi-Fi too. In which I found out to late.
