Our family visited the rainforest adventures and really liked the show we went to at 11. Jungle Jim was funny and entertaining. Most of the exhibits are inside which we didn't realize so it would be perfect to go to on a hot or rainy day. Kids can touch a few animals and hold a snake during the show.

It was worth going for the kids, they enjoyed it. They did not have a lot of animals, but the animals that they did have, were interesting. It was nice because most of the animals are inside, so you were able to escape the heat. The part the kids liked the best, was feeding the animals outside.

I was disappointed. I have been to a real rainforest and they do have many specimens of the animals and 4 legged creatures that one sees in Costa Rica and places like this. It just pained me to see the animals behind glass and out of their natural habitat.

They had a lot of interesting animals from the rainforests. Birds, monkeys, lemurs, and rambuncious monkies. We found a groupon that threw in feed bags and saved us ten bucks. Keep an eye out for those. This is worth it especially if you have little ones.

I think it's worth going to for children i liked that the majority of it is indoors because it was very hot the day we went. Most of the enclosures were clean for the most part. It would be nice if they could add some more animals
