Nice place! It poured so wasn't as enjoyable as it could be and the Orangutan was under vet observation but other than that we really enjoyed.

A little over priced but it pays for the animals. My kids loved feeding the monkeys from the inside. It's a very small place, quick to go through. You can buy the monkey food there for .25-.75 per box of craisons.

I love both animals and especially monkeys, so this is kind of a big deal place for me. If I could rate it higher than excellent, I would. Admission seems a bit steep, and I've seen that echoed in some comments, but I will retort with the following: 1. If you live in Florida or plan on coming back, you... More

We hunted this attraction out via Google and headed over to visit for the afternoon. Entrance fee is $29.95 per adult. It's not a particularly large attraction, although, I have mixed feelings on this. On one hand for the few monkeys we saw you were able to spend time viewing. On the other hand when you arrive and are told... More

I am so glad I stumbled onto this attraction. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Just feeding the monkeys in the cages was so much better than a zoo day. However, the rain forest experience was beyond my wildest expectations. You go in with the monkeys and they give you food and teach you how to encourage the... More

Could have stayed here for hours and hours. I love monkeys and if you love monkeys please go here - - you can pay extra to be right in with the monkeys and they climb all over you and its so much fun. They really take good care of the monkeys. I just wish we had of stayed way longer.... More

So, let me start by saying that we visited with three teens (18, 16 & 16) which were less than enthusiastic about stopping at a "monkey zoo." We got there about 3:00, paid our admission, bought monkey food and headed off on our monkey adventure. The park is fairly small so it is easy to manage despite a hot afternoon... More

Probably a good stop if you are on your way south. This has been around a long time, and it's pretty unique - a bunch of monkeys, and some gorillas, but they are active and interesting and having fun when they are not lazing around. Not really sure how to explain it, but it seems like a more casual zoo.... More
