My wife made me go with her, & boy was I glad I went. It's small enough, so you don't have to walk forever to see everything. There are things there that I've never seen in any other zoo. We were able to see all three shows with no problem. Sit at the top, middle for the bird show. They... More

This attraction is a bit pricey - $60.00 for one adult and one child - but worth it. Tons of animals, lots to do, interactive, interesting for children and adults, and very safe. Lots of shows, too!!

I visited this place with my wife and we both had a great time. We did the lemur experience which was a little scary, they jump all over you and mark you with their scent. The Manu was cool where little monkeys run free. The best part was being able to hold a baby white tiger cub. A little expensive,... More

I visited jungle island and was horrified that animals have to live like this. It was pouring down with rain and all the birds were sitting out in the rain. A bird named Marty who is totally blind had what looked like a seizure. I later asked someone that works there and found out he had a stroke. The tiger... More

This is a really nice place and easier to manage than a large zoo. There isn't a large variety of animals but the ones that they do have a well maintained and you are able to get great pictures of them. Before you even start touring the place, you get a chance to hold parrots, a baby money and a... More

We went to this park expecting to have some "hands-on" experience with animals because that is what all of their ads show. There are plenty of photo opportunities, but you are not allowed to take your own pictures, and you will pay handsomely for theirs. It felt very old fashioned, and most of the exhibits left us feeling sorry for... More

My mother (50-something) and I (30-something) did the VIP tour and thought it was excellent value for money... The guide and photographer (which we paid extra to tour with us so we didn't have to take photos) were both really friendly and full of interesting information and funny stories. The Lemur Encounter is AMAZING!!!!! We had multiple lemurs crawling and... More

Did the VIP experience and loved every minute. Lemurs were crazy but very cool. The staff was exceptional. I got to meet tons of other animals ...kangaroos, giant turtle, penguin, cassowary (very intense), a couple other birds. Overall fun experience.
