Since opening in 2001, the zoo has delighted millions of visitors and is one of the finest small zoos in the country, housing hundreds of tropical and temperate animals, the majority of which have been born or hatched in captivity.

With hundreds of animals, this first-class destination attracts numerous visitors each year. At the zoo, you can wander past a 25-foot jungle waterfall or discover venomous snakes, giant tortoises, and vibrant birds in the indoor rainforest. All kinds of animals are represented, from the poison dart frog to the emperor scorpion, from the African serval to the Madagascar Day Gecko, as well as many beautiful parrots and finches.

Most of these animals have been hatched, born, and raised at the zoo and come from a variety of species. Exhibits feature reptiles, mammals, birds, and bugs - so you can explore everything from feathery friends to creepy crawlies.

About The Special Show

*
Occasionally, the zoo will have a free show for guests of all ages to enjoy. During this show, a knowledgeable and personable zoo keeper will bring out a variety of fun animals to meet and greet with guests. This is an amazing opportunity for kiddos to learn about the animals of our world and enjoy getting to know them in person. The special show is only showed when requested by large school groups, etc, so it may or may not be going on during your visit. 

This family-friendly zoo is hidden away in beautiful Sevierville, Tennessee and is well-worth a trip! RainForest Adventures Discovery Zoo will give you an exciting look at hundreds of species for a fun-filled day! This would be a great addition to any family vacation. Pair this with any of the other similar activities for a great visit.

"Very neat."
Very neat. They have cool animals there. And a lot of them were active so that was cool to see. It wasn’t very big so that could be a good thing. Pretty cool little gift shop there as well.
