Visitors to the Green Planet embark on a multi-level journey through the various levels of a tropical rainforest.
Exhibits are arranged on various levels in a huge glass cylindrical building. A spiral walkway wraps around the world’s biggest manmade tree.
Each level explores the creatures found at the various levels of a tropical rainforest. Many of the animals and birds roam freely amongst visitors.
The lower level is the Flooded Rainforest. Aquaria here feature marine species such as piranhas. Other levels are Forest Floor, Midstory, and Canopy. Animals and birds found around the attraction include bats, an anteater, sloths, a Burmese python, leaf cutter ants, African spurred tortoise, toucans, parrots, and sugar gliders.
An Australian outback exhibit features wallabies, lizards, turtles, snakes, and tree frogs.
Temperature and humidity levels accurately reflect the experience of a tropical rainforest. Mist sprays and waterfalls add an additional layer of authenticity.
Admission fees are reasonable and visitors can stay as long as they want. For opening times and ticket prices visit the official Green Planet website (see information box at the end of this page).
Facilities include a cafe with shaded outdoor seating area and a soft play area for children.
