I went to see the Ligers. I saw them so that made my trip worthwhile. But for others I think it's probably a bit expensive as it's pretty small and the shows are just average. Also wasn't a big fan of how small some of the exhibits were.

Nice exhibits but must say charging $35 adult $26 children. Temp in 90s in shade and charging $3 for water. Free water fountain be nice. Animals treated better they got free water. Little stuffed Lemur was $70 in their gift shop (only place with AC). I had 20%off coupon and still feel paid too much for family of four.

This is a sneaky surprise! This time around I officiated a wedding at Jungle Island and what a nice surprise! Brand new hard wood floors, wonderful views in either direction. Or get married at the waterfall- maybe too loud so take pictures there instead. Ample room for 300+ guests,beautiful covered terrace- with lush greenery. Merci the coordinator and the staff... More

I love parrots and this place does not disappoint. Loved being able to feed them and touch those that wished to be touched. The open exhibit with the monkeys, parrots, iguanas, etc., was entertaining, but the area could maybe be a bit larger. The place is really steamy in July though, prepare to sweat!

I visited here on August 15th 2014 for my Anniversary and booked the VIP safari tour. I saw online some animals and what it contained and it was an amazing experience. It was quite expensive however the animals that we experienced were just amazing. The Lemur experience is the ONLY place in the world where you can sit and hold... More

Wanted to do something for my 7 year old cousin. I was able to receive 20% of my entrance fee but still found it a little too expensive and on top of the price you have to pay a flat rate of $8.00 for parking. A little to much for a tourist. The show in the Parrott area was great... More

Large outdoor areas but feels a little run down and could use an upgrade. The entrance fee is too high for what is offered. The shows are not too bad and location is nice but not an exciting place to visit . We did go mid week and it was slow so not sure if weekends would be better.

I just don't understand why people that want to suck huge amounts of money from other people wind up operating amusement parks and zoos, so that you are taking money away from families with young kids to support. This place cost me, my husband and 8 year old daughter a total of $101 for admission. That considerable price notwithstanding, I... More

Many animals of different species. Very friendly staff. The ability to get close to the animals is excellent.
