“For animal LOVERS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband and I are bird lovers and loved the opportunity to feed and interact with so many different bird species. You really cant get that many bird species anywhere else. The initial photos were a little rushed despite there being no-one else around. The shows were basic but informative which is the point...to educate. The winged wonders show was amazing and I doubt that many ppl understand just how amazing mamma cass is. Not knowing their husbandary routines I don.t think that anyone can comment on the health and wellbeing of the animals. The macaws seemed to enjoy the interaction with ppl and the other animals had decent exhibits. If you want circus tricks and flamboyance don't come here..it's for ppl who really want to connnect with wildlife.

“Great place for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The shows are fun. The birds are beautiful. You can even feed them. There is a place to eat by the lake. Take a day and see the place.

“Animal in small cages”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

We went there with our 2 years old,visiting from NYC. I am a huge animal lover and go often to zoo. This place is a money maker type of place and it seems that taking care of animals is their last concern. There was loud music playing everywhere , the cages very totally inappropriate especially for the lions and tigers, it is very sad to see these beauty in cages that have no place where they can have some piece and quiet, no trees nor rocks to climb. Overall not a place to go if you truly care for wild life. Instead make a donation to a charity but don't waste your money there. Also when you walk in, there are many employees holding animals so you can take pictures, these animals are all day long held by people walking in, again not the way we should experience wild animals. Alligator with mouse taped and birds with clipped wings....shame on you jungle island.

“Just an average visit ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

The park has lots of animals and a few shows, but it has nothing special and /or unique. The staffs are friendly, but the park itself is not that interesting.

“Good for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Worth a visit but not for more than a couple of hours, expensive and a bit cheesy. But kids apparently love it
