Knoxville Zoo Wee Play Adventure Opens July 19 & You Want To Go!

The Knoxville Zoo it is one of our family’s favorite places to spend time. The Wee Play Adventure area is always on the boys’ list to visit so, I was excited to see result of the months of work that has been going on. It is well done, and you are going to love it!  The exhibit is impressively  planned and designed for pre-school through elementary aged kids.  I was happy to see I could bring all four of my boys (aged 2-8) and they would all find something to interest them.

Wee Play Adventure is Knoxville Zoo’s new indoor creative play area with an Inddonesia island theme. The space is large and open, but just like before you can easily see the exits so kids can’t escape move on to explore other parts of the Zoo without you knowing it.

In the center is a giant Woka tree full of tunnels, a rope bridge and lots of room to climb and explore.  Surrounding the Woka tree is an archaeological dig site where your kids can discover all types of fossils.

There are also two imagination areas! One is designed as an outpost where adventurers can stock their knapsacks. The other is a research laboratory and animal clinic where they can help save the island’s Komodo dragons.  There is a small area for crawlers, an infant care room and the new Brown Squirrel Parent Refuge. An area with some comfy couches and chairs, free Wi-Fi and a Pilot Flying J coffee bar!

Of course, I can’t leave out of the best features of the new Wee Play Adventure! The new indoor/outdoor habitat for the zoo’s two Komodo dragons, Khaleesi and Drogo. This habitat is 1,000 square feet and wide open for close up encounters of the two dragons. The habitat also includes a tunnel with a pop-up bubble that takes kids “into” the habitat. Khaleesi used to live up near the snakes and spent a lot of time in her tree so sometimes she was a little hard to see.  Her new home is huge, and open and there is plenty of room for everyone to see her.

I got to go INSIDE Khaleesi’s habitat while I was previewing new exhibit.  She seems even bigger when there is no glass between you. :)  Here is the pic I snapped from the inside.
