The RainForest Zoo is open year round. Mixing fun with education. Home to hundreds of amazing and unique live animals from around the world. See leaping lemurs, giant porcupines, tropical animals and other creates from across the globe. Experience the beauty of the rainforest with your family. Witness species of mammals that most people have never heard of, including the genet and coatimundi. Unique creatures from all of the major tropical and temperate forests of the world.
The zoo is locally owned. A lot of the animals have been donated. There will be some animals you can pick up and hold. Allow at least 1.5 hours. Every zoo I have ever been to with monkeys seems to have a strong urine smell. This one is no exception.
RainForest Adventure Discovery Zoo is a small little zoo that is jam-packed with tons of fun! Designed by one of the contractors who worked on the Disney Animal Kingdom project, it features over 600 different animals.
Most of the zoo is inside, but there is also a small petting zoo outside with goats, sheep and emu.
It’s a mom and pop run business, with more than 20 years under their belt and a focus on exotic animals of the rain forest.
