Under the Canopy: Animals of the Rainforest is a highly immersive exhibit experience where you and your family will discover what rainforests are, where they are in the world, how they are doing, and why they are important. Private VIP Tours may be purchased for families or groups wishing to experience the exhibit with no one else other than a tour guide and their own group members. These are private events, only sold to one group of no more than 8 people.
Private VIP Tour: The Private VIP Tour includes a guided tour of the Under the Canopy exhibit for up to 8 people. You will be introduced to 15 different species of animals that call the rainforest home. These exotic animals include various amphibians—like frogs and toads— reptiles—like lizards, tortoises, and snakes—and even some mammals—like a Two-Toed Sloth! Interact with professional educational conservationists as you get up-close and personal with some of the world's most precious representatives of the animal kingdom.
