New Experiences for You to Enjoy!
Flock to Budgie Landing! Gone Troppo you say? It means “gone wild” in Aussie and we’re celebrating a wild new experience in Kids Cove this season. It’s fun on a stick with budgies at Budgie Landing, where you can offer seed sticks to these brightly colored Australian birds now on exhibit in the Kids Cove Aviary.
Get creative at the LEGO® Play Lodge. While visiting Kids Cove checking out the all new Budgie Landing, be sure to stop by another new experience – the LEGO® Play Lodge. Let your imagination run wild with LEGOs®, DUPLOs® and more at the Play Lodge. Build your own zoo animal and then purchase what you build! Create something wild at the LEGO® Play Lodge and take it home today!
Experience the all new Williams Family Giraffe Encounter where you will come face to face with these gentle giants and even have the opportunity to feed them a treat. Our new treetop platform brings this experience to new heights!
Get your splash on at the coolest place in town – Clayton Safari Splash, Knoxville’s largest splash pad with over 5,000 square feet of splishy splashy fun!
