Fun Place to see some different Monkeys!

We have visited a few times. If you can the season pass is decent value. Single passes are a bit pricey but you can usually find a coupon somewhere on line. Good activity for a... read more

The human cages are getting smaller its seems this used to be way better seems to have less to see and not enough to do or see to spend the day to see all the monkey shows. More birds than anything it was not worth the admission cost nor were the gift shop items worth the cost, Bring your craisins... More

It seemed like a lot of money to pay for a small attraction. The kids had fun and the staff was nice, but I won't return again. If you do go defiantly buy/bring monkey food (raisins). You get to feed monkeys from bowls and feeding tubes.

This is the second time my adult (animal loving) children and I have visited Monkey Jungle. We purchased the "Rainforest adventure" and loved having the monkeys climb on us when we fed them. Well worth the money and trip!

Visited with family which included an 11 year old boy and an almost 7 year old girl. Both liked it as they enjoyed feeding the monkeys and listening to the informative and interesting talks given by some of the keepers. Spent a couple of hours here which was adequate. Does seem a bit over priced. It seems to have been... More

Took 3 kids under 6 y/o to keep them busy on a winter break day. Be sure to look up the price before you go, as you may be surprised upon arrival. This is NOT a cheap experience. They have various birds and some reptiles in older-looking enclosures. Had to pay extra for a tour of the rain forest area,... More

Talk about a tourist trap! It is a cute place to take the kids for an hour or two get some raisins or sunflower seeds and feed the monkeys that is the main attraction here. However it is pretty small and for the $140 entrance fee for a family of four I can see how it was not crowded and... More

I loved this place. We paid the normal admission (you could pay $50 more for a more private and close encounter with the monkeys). Once in the park, there are 4 shows and the people giving the shows were informative and amusing. Loved seeing the Ape and learning about him. You can buy raisins to feed the monkeys in the... More

I came here mainly to see how the orangutan and gorilla were faring. Their environs have been improved and this is as close to a natural habitat as these animals can have outside of the wild. Yes it is pricey but the money is necessary to keep the place going so I think it's well worth the cost. The shows... More
