Turn back the clock to animal adventure; little technology and fuss! Enthusiastic staff, but upgrades needed to make attraction more presentable! Water near boat docks could have less duck weed! Liked the magnet deal!

Brought my 9 year old here today and couldn't believe we are born and raised here and have never heard of the place! It was great! We learned SO much about gators that we should probably be ashamed for not already knowing as natives. We learned of this place from one of the employees Jungle Jim at the manatee festival... More

This place should have been shut down years ago and the owners jailed for the conditions these poor animals are kept in. TINY enclosures that are made of concrete and mud! The urine smell was overwhelming and several of the animals had water dishes that were in reachable for them. Our guide said although we don't have room to physically... More

This was the most horrifying mistreatment of animals in captivity I have seen. Dirty small enclosures and social animals kept in solitude. Zoos are not for me but thought this was more of a preserve. It is not. Animals not allowed appropriate space to exercise etc. I can't believe this passes safety codes with deteriorated bridges and walkways. This place... More

This is an old style FL animal park located in the heart of the swamp land in rural Florida. They have tons of gators -- complete with gator feeding shows, and getting to hold a baby gator. They also have a boat ride that takes you around the lagoon and is quite relaxing and interesting. They also have panthers, monkeys,... More

Since we've been in Florida it's been a wonderful time we decided to go to Jungle Adventures and we had a blast. Besides me being scared of the birds walking around I had a blast lol. I got to hold,touch and feed some of the animals and that was great I wasn't afraid of anything but the birds lol. FYI... More

We went on a day with rain on and off, so it wasn't crowded. It definetly needs work/upgrades in a few areas . The current owner was our tour narrator. He is very passionate about the animals and informative. There is a hands on section of the tour, that was fun. A boat ride was included too. I really wasn't... More

Folks are very nice, great collection of animals, alligators, presenter was great with Alligators and the tour. Wish the alligators were moving a little better. Boat ride was ok but not as spectacular as they portrayed, but don't miss either. Nice location to take pictures.

This is a great little park! Colleen was a wonderful host! Knowledgeable, kind, caring and so pleasant! She walked us through the entire educational experience! If your looking for a big zoo, go to the zoo. BUT if you want a nice pleasant no ignorant crowd experience, I recommend an afternoon at this park. It is small (by comparison) but... More
