To be fair let me start by saying that we went to Jungle Island on a Friday so it was rather quiet and perhaps that contributed to our experience. That being said, I remember going to the then named Parrot Jungle about a decade ago and that was entertaining but this new version doesn't seem to be so. It feels like a private zoo with a few, underline the FEW, attractions like the white lions but the overall experience fell way short of expectations specially considering the admission price that averages $35 per person plus, the gull, of charging an additional $8 for parking.
Our kid was bored and did not truly enjoyed the spaced out animals as one can expect on a humid South Florida day.
If you have the time and transportation I recommend Lion Safari in Palm Beach. It may be an hour drive but it has far more variety from the zoo, the rides and the water park.
