So much more then just a zoo! You can also ride a train, play in the splash pad, camel rides, carousel rides and multiple shows and animal encounters that you can do. Plus they offer behind the scenes tours.

I was pleasantly surprised by how interactive & kid-centered this zoo is. The cost was similar to what we have seen at other zoos. My kids loved it. They are currently expanding the exhibits & we want to go back (We are from Indiana). I will say if you drive a bus or rv, we didn't find parking designated for larger vehicles. So, park at the first lot you come to or else you will have a tough time maneuvering through the lot down by the entrance.

The name is Zoo Knoxville as of a few years ago. Admission is $18 per adult. Check their site for times and info. You also pay $5 for parking. It was a nice and well laid out zoo.
