What was old is new again

It's nice to see this zoo, which first opened in 1936, reinvent itself yet again. The entire attraction looks relatively new and well kept. The animals are in pseudo-realistic... read more

I've lived in Florida my whole life never visited this park and I was very pleased. It it's a bit expensive but as a Florida resident it's good to get the annual pass. It's not a big park you can walk it within 3 hrs. Has many extra actives you can add to your ticket to view or interact with... More

A very enjoyable time amongst the animals! Bring some water-Summers can get very hot & humid! You can also jump into the mini water park/slide!

Since I moved to Florida, one or both of my little sisters have come down to visit me every summer. Every visit we can do one "big" thing, and ever since we stumbled across the VIP tour at Jungle Island, that has always been our one "big" thing. It is one of the most incredible experiences you can have! People... More

It's nice to see this zoo, which first opened in 1936, reinvent itself yet again. The entire attraction looks relatively new and well kept. The animals are in pseudo-realistic environments and appear to be happy and well cared for. The trails and signs can be confusing and my party of two adult and two teenagers found it easy to get...

Take your time enjoying Jungle Island as it is a bit expensive. Look for coupons in tourist guides as well. Overall the experience was good. We enjoyed the open interaction with some of the birds throughout the facility. The shows were OK, targeted much more at educating youth versus seeing the animals do much. They charge extra for several of... More

Petting zoo is really cool for young children. Lots of animals and lots to see. Shows are entertaining but very bland. Good family fun. Pricey though.
