“Bird are amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Amazing how they can make a bird ride a bike. Parrots will dazzle you with their tricks. They can talk say jokes, count and even ride a bike on a high wire. Take the kids they will love it.

“BEST VACATION FOR KIDS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

It was fantastic as my teenagers were taken up by the experience of feeding the Macaws. This has been my 3rd visit, the first being at it original location on Red Road. The shows were exciting with the birds of Prey but my youngest kept wanting to fo to feed that macaws. We had fun taking photos wth the birds all over you. It was a treat as they behaved really well for the photos.

“Dissapointed by the greed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We felt that all we got from entering till we left was milked and bilked for more money each turn we took; there were some nice things there to see; but after so much of more money for this and more money for that I myself was ready to leave after 3 hours and then to see what they want for all those photos??? big bucks---- enough-- and yes; the greedy $8.00 for the parking don't forget. Would have rather spent my money and time in the everglades.

“Good shows and nice place to take your kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

You must see the huge cocrodile that lives there! also the shows are pretty good! Specially when the birds fly on top of your head!

Food is expensive and they should think more about offering better prices or more value!

“Jungle Island - Formerly Parrot Jungle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The staff here were very bubbly and happy, but sadly a lot was left to be desired from the Island itself.

The layout is confusing. We were 7 adults and 4 kids and managed to go round in circles. Twice. As other reviewers have stated - there aren't many animals here. That's fine. The issue we had was that the animals that were here had very little space to live in.

The shows were fine, and again, full of energy but not something that my kids (3 and 5) enjoyed.

Overall it was a fun day despite the small cages and the copious opportunities that the Island took to scrape more money from us!
