The makakis and squirrel monkeys are probably in paradise here, but other monkeys has pretty small and boring cages. The orangutang seemed depressed and actually made me cry. I don't doubt the caregivers loves these animals and do their best but some cages really was not okey. I would also wish for more fun and stimulative cages for the birds.... More

What a little gem this place is if you love monkeys! Well kept, the animals seem happy, the staff was amazing, the shows were very informative.....and you just have to splurge and do the rainforest adventure so you can hold the monkeys! It was so much fun and so worth it. I cannot wait to come back again when we... More

Monkey Jungle is not a rainforest but they have a lush tropical area. You would think they could come up with a better engineered area for the monkeys. The animals seem well cared for but need more to do. The concessions and bathroom facilities are fine. The staff are knowledgeable.

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!

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 few hours. Not a full day attraction. Place is well laid out and you have very close interaction with the animals. Many are within only... More

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
