I have visited the jungle many times and see that the new management is trying to improve that place. Overall I have fun with my kids because we know what to expect and our expectations are low. We love doctor wasaby show and the playground is great for the kids... BUT for the price it's really not worth it... It's... More

Book yourself at least 5 hours. Try out to be there in the middle of the week. Great meeting with nature. Interesting shows. Obviously necessary camera. I recommend to all.

I had an incredible time there. Chose the VIP package which was worth it. You get a personal tour guide and thanx to her, the tour was lots of fun. You really learn some facts about the animals in general and the animals they have in particular. Adds some funny stories for the laughs. Interact with lots of animals there.... More

We paid extra to spend time with the baby lemurs and it is something I will never forget. The rest of the park is well kept and clean. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The timed shows are well done and entertaining. We had a really good time taking pictures of all of the beautiful birds that are uncaged so... More

My family & I visited on a Saturday over Labor Day weekend. They were offering a "neighbors deal" where all of the attractions & specials within the park were $10. We specifically went to partake in the lemur attraction as we've done so at other zoos but spent upwards of $200. Unfortunately, upon our arrival we were notified that children... More

Second time I've been here and did not disappoint. If you are an animal lover this is a fantastic place to spend the day. Young kids, teenagers, grown-up - all had a blast. If you are willing to spend a bit extra you can add to the fun by visiting with a bunch of lemurs (incredible) who jump all over... More

Have been to Jungle Island a few time and have always had fun. Today not so much. Got in on a living social deal so saved money. You enter the park and they take pictures of you and the parrots I still have my pictures when I was a kid I'm 65 now. Gal pal pulled out her Ipad and... More

we visited on Labor Day as well and it was very crowded but that is to be expected with the price per person reduced to $10 rather than the regular $35. It's a nice trip and there even is plenty of shade as you walk from one part to the other.

Seconds after we asked for the tickets but before we paid, my sis remembered she had a coupon for 20% off. When she brought it to the attention of the clerk, who seemed willing to do something about it, the supervisor very rudely responded that there was absolutely nothing she could do. We paid full price, but the first customer... More

We came to Miami specifically to visit Jungle Island and for the VIP experience. We found all the staff extremely helpful and knowledgable and they were very receptive to our questions. We did the VIP experience and would highly recommend this to anyone interested in animals in general and conservation issues in particular. The interactions were informative and also more... More
