I usually hate Zoo's and I leave with mixed feelings of interest over what I have seen coupled with depression over the animals living conditions. Why do I go? I have kids who really enjoy them so I trudge on and on. Jungle Island was different. There is nothing, and I mean nothing like the lemur experience. It is an... More

Dirty areas, expensive parking, animals in poor conditions, bad staff services. Definitely not a place to return with my family.

I loved this place years ago. The shows have not changed. It's very expensive for what it is. I was also given a sick aligator to take photos with. He deficated all over me and my daughter. I was handed a roll of paper towels and sent to a bathroom to wash with cold water. I never complain and know... More

Where else can you see a beautiful animal that is a cross betwwen a lion and a tiger? Haven't viewed white tigers outside of Las Vegas, but here were some cubs. Both of these animals are included in the jungle show. We also enjoyed the bird show, with many unique birds flying about. Both shows were excellent. We were fortunate... More

My sister and I decided we wanted to have a fun filled day at a zoo. After a day of deciding we chose jungle island. Oh how we were wrong! Lethargic is the best way to put it, everything was gray and dull the animals looked sad. You could hear the construction across the bay. It was confusing with the... More

I hardly ever take the time to write a review, but ever since I went to Jungle Island last Sunday, I felt the urge to write about it. I took my daughter and my boyfriend's daughter, spent (wasted) $103 bucks + the parking (which to my surprise was not included in the outrageous price), and felt that I had been... More

I visited Jungle island in January and cannot say enough great things about the Lemur experience! The lemur trainer was very friendly and informative. Since there was no appointment after us, she extended our time with the lemurs to almost an hour! It was worth every dollar! You are able to get the lemur package w.o buying a zoo package.... More

loved the birds, but the pricing is high $35 per person + tax and parking and they push you to buy the photos which can be another $20 plus per crack. From talking with some of the staff there, most of the shows are for young children, there was only 1 show they felt worked for adults. For a young... More

We took two of our grandchildren, ages 4 and 6, to Jungle Island for the VIP tour. We had a wonderful day. Our guide, Shanika was exceptional. But everyone we encountered at Jungle Island was helpful and friendly. We had up close encounters with tortoises, a rock iguana, a kinkajou, kangaroos and a capuchin monkey. In addition we got VIP...

Brought my family over for the lemur encounter for My daughters birthday. It was more than we could have hoped for. What an experience. I cannot say enough about our new lemur friends and the great staff throughout the park.
