I had been to Jungle Island before and had a great time, not sure why I never wrote a review. We were looking for something different to do with my friend and her three kids who were visting from out of town for the 4th that wasn't going to be a booze fest and I heard about this on the radio, when it said there would be country performers and line dancing, we were in! We got there a little earlier than the stated 2pm start time and had a blast. THe line dancing was fun, the kids loved the animals, playground and face painting but most of all ,we all LOVED the waterpark. I think we stayed on for almost an hour, and needless to say everyone slept well! We also watched two of the shows, the bird one and the one where they bring out the liger and tiger cubs. So cute! As other reviews state it's not a HUGE zoo, but for a family it's a great way to spend the afternoon and the event itself was a lot of fun. The performers were really good, food was good and at the end of the day, the kids had a great time and that's what mattered most! Thanks Jungle Island, we will definitely be back!
