“Beautiful birds!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Before we started the tour, we were given a photo opp for a fee to hold parrots in our hands. That was my favorite part of the entire tour! Plus we have the picture which went into the Jungle Parrot frame. Not complaining at all. It is a favorite! The parrots were so soft and lightweight and cuddlyI We enjoyed our walk thru the Jungle. Unfortunately, it was a very hot and humid day and not many places to sit to rest. There is a LOT of walking. You definitely need a lot of drinking water. It was disappointing to see that the birds were in such small cages. The white tiger did look very bored and was just laying around off in the distance so no great photos of him. Kids would love this place! All in all a fun experience.

“Fantastic!! VIP tour rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We had an awesome experience at Jungle Island -we did the VIP tour and it was amazing. We played/petted so many fabulous animals and learned so much. It was fabulous sitting in the room with the Lemurs while they crawled and jumped all around. We had a photographs taken and the photographer did an amazing job. I am highly suspicious of anyone who complains about incidents with animals as I am inclined to think that they weren't watching their children, also, one should ALWAYS know that an animal can quickly change behavior and one must always be on the look out
I loved this place! Staff was excellent

“Return of the Birds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

You never even imagined birds came in such brilliant colors. Their appearance alone stuns. But then you get to see a bird show and can hear some of the birds talk. I think one even pushed a wheelbarrow when we went. It's especially fun for kids.

“Horrible place and staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We do not recommend this place to any family. We had a serious incident involving one of the macaus in the feeding area close to the entrance (which is completely unsupervised). The bird caused serious injuries to my son which required immediate medical attention. Despite seeing a small child bleeding and crying in pain the staff (believe me!) was completely adamant to help us and show us the place designated to provide first aid treatment. Not only that but once in the office the insensitive treatment continued. Incredible! I could not believe the lack of sensitivity for a child. This is the time when we are still waiting for the Incident Report filed and that they said their insurance provider will send us. NEVER AGAIN.
