It's impossible to compare Jungle Island, the beleagured attraction on Watson Island, with the much beloved, original Parrot Jungle, which was off Old Cutler Road in a veritable jungle of an environment (now it is a county park). I suppose the idea was to make it a more visible, accessible location for tourists, but in my opinion, they killed the goose that laid the golden egg. Now there's a parking garage, an uninspired snack bar, pricey tickets, and a much more urban, less tropical environment. That's not to say that there aren't many things to admire here, the parrots of course! But it's not the same. People still go here and have a wonderful time, it seems...but those of us who fondly remember the old Parrott Jungle are less than impressed. This has been a money-loser from the get-go.
