My only concern is the safety of the animals. I saw several animals being taunted and abused my guests. I can mention 2 occasions that I witnessed it and had to take action. The first time was the kids in a field trip punching and slapping the window where the lion was located. This made the lion attack the window... More

I have lived in Miami for 12 years and not once have I ever visited Jungle Island. The introduction to the WaterPark they added was what caught my eyes to finally visit the venue. Everyone was so hospitable and nice from the ticket clerk, the cafe staff, to the crews throughout the park. I work for a Hotel near by... More

Jungle Island is a great time for young children with the petting area and the way the park is laid out makes it easy to enjoy. The "bird show" was terrific. Definitely recommend for families. Not cheap at $35 per when 5 adults were going for the purpose of one child...but that's the way it goes.

So much more than just a zoo. They had shows and many chances to interact and touch tons of different animals. Loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back!

If you are BLACK OR DO NOT SPEAK SPANISH and if you want to have a great day, Jungle Island is the place to STAY AWAY from. First of all, when shows need volunteers, they call on white kids. I've seen this on only one show. But it's not that conspicuous as compared to what we had with food. We... More

The poor animals are cramped in cages. No natural habitat reproduction for them. They seemed over stressed just panting back and forth. It was depressing to see. The staff at the concession stands were bitter and rude. Definitely not going back. It's not worth paying so much money to see animals kept so poorly.

OK, so we went to the Parrot Jungle in the original location just before it moved to the current location, and loved the quaint rock walkways and overgrown vegetation. The new one is still a great place to visit, but IMHO they did sacrifice the surroundings to ease access and add more animals and shows, like the tigers and lion,... More

Friends and I took the VIP tour at Jungle Island and had so much fun. I'm a big fan of zoos with trips to the Bronx, San Diego and Sydney, but I never got to be so close before. A private guide took us through the park with explanations by the handlers of each habitat and a chance to meet... More

Very expensive, tiny cages for very large lions and tigers. This place should be closed down. The vending machines were no working in a very hot day, when you need cold drinks. They don't allow some photos with your personal camera, so as to force you to buy their expensive ones.
