The only thing we liked seeing was the ligers, and the visibility was poor. Definitely not worth the price.

Amazing array of animals for a zoo, and the experience is well designed (to mimic the nearby everglades). At $35 per adult and $25 per child, however, be warned that it is a bit expensive.

The best part about this place is the Lemur Experience. Yes you have to pay extra for this, but it was worth it. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it. The Jungle Island experience itself was not that good. There are a few large animals inside but for the most part it is nothing but birds. For the price of entry... More

The haunted house during their Terror i the jungle Halloween event is amazing. The house is incredibly scary and dark. Much better than Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando. Be warned it is scary and dark. Do not bring young children.

For tourist with limited time in Miami.... General admission is $35 for adults and I believe $29 for children. All the extra stuff (petting zoo, kangaroo, lemurs) that is an additional charge therefore just based on that, really depends how much time away from beach are you willing to spend to see few animals. The pros: location is beautiful. Of... More

I travelled all the way from the UK to Miami for a holiday and was really excited to go to jungle island. The admission tickets are extremely overpriced for walking around somewhere that could take you 20 mins. The lion enclosure is really upsetting to see 5 lions/tigers in an enclosure you wouldn't even see 1 lion in disneyworld!! Here... More

JungleIsland, Manager at Jungle Island, responded to this review

Thank you for visiting Jungle Island during your recent trip to Miami. We are disappointed to learn our attraction did not meet your expectations and can assure you that all animal enclosures meet and in many cases exceed requirements set by the State and the Zoological Association of America. In fact, the enclosure for our lions is ten times larger... More

I recently had a mother and daughter weekend with my 8 year old. She chose this destination and it was quite memorable thanks to the Lemur Experience. Do not expect a big zoo or hundreds of animals because you will be disappointed. However, there are various experiences you can add to the entry ticket. Having recently fed kangaroos in Sydney,...

Great experience. Lots of beautiful animals to see. DON'T FORGET TO TAKE YOUR BATHING SUITS, TOWELS, LUNCH, WATER AND A CHANGE OF CLOTHING! At the end of the zoo, you will end up at a white sandy beach with an inflatable bounce park located in the water! A lot of fun! Lots of seating and tables. Bathrooms located nearby. We... More
