Wee Play Adventure 

brought to you by 


Knoxville Zoo has a new experience designed to inspire preschool and elementary - aged visitors to take an imagination fueled adventure! Located in the Pilot Flying J building, Wee Play Adventure involved extensive construction to create a jungle island that gives kids the chance to immerse themselves in an exotic expedition, just like real animal researchers in the field. Visitors of all ages can get an intimate view of the zoo's female Komodo dragon, Khaleesi, in a new 1,000 square foot indoor / outdoor habitat, and the zoo's juvenile male Komodo dragon, Drogo, in his new home where he has plenty of room to grow. Guests will also have the opportunity to see one of the best giant lizard habitats in the country.  Wee Play Adventure is the perfect place to encourage creative play and physical activity year round!
