Years and years ago I went to the original Parrot Jungle and it was great. Have been wanting to go to Jungle Island for a long, long time. Well...today was the day! The admission was very expensive for what you got. The shows were so corny and geared just to the kids. At the one show, if you wanted to... More

We are Miami residents and visited Jungle Island for the first time during the day time this past weekend, the weather was perfect (in the 60s) so we were able to walk around and visit the animals (don't know if I would do this in hotter weather). Park is clean and well kept, animals look very sad though (they look... More

As we got there we had a problem with Nicole the attendant in the ticketing area. We had a coupon for a discount that I had printed that morning before leaving to go to the park with my family, I printed that from the park website but apparently I printed the wrong one. She got really annoyed with me and... More

Jungle Island is just near Biscayne Boulevard (just had to cross a bridge by foot) It's a very cool place , we see lots of animals and we saw 3 different shows (Dr Wasabi's one is the coolest). We could touch kangaroos for more 5$ each. It takes 3 hours to make the complete tour.

What an amazing way to spend an afternoon in Miami! One of the few truly family friendly places that the adults can enjoy too. The birds are beautiful, the monkeys and orangutans are hilarious, and the photo op's a plenty! The petting zoo and play area are great for youngsters but my favorite were the liger and penguins. There really... More

Contemplating on whether I should express my opinion on Jungle Island I looked through a number of reviews and felt that I have to. The point is that disappointment of some reviewers has the only reason: they were initially relying on a complete misconception. Two main complaints are for high prices and lack of animal diversity. But one should understand... More

I loved the old parrot jungle but the new island is a complete rip off geared towards taking every penny it can from you while giving you zero customer service and a totally flat experience. It's sad I have such fond memories as a child of the place and now was terribly disappointed taking my own son here. Beware of... More

If you want to waste your money this is the perfect place to do it. Terrible!!!! poor attractions, laser show a fiasco, the snow thing ugly and dirty. Everything to expensive. Poor installations, lack of information and bad attitude employees. The "beautiful" Jungle Island website is selling you a LIE.

Went there with the Family and had an enjoyable time. The concept and shows are entertaining but very short. The problem we found was that everything was an added cost and the costs were quite high. This is on top of a pretty high entrance fee to the park for a family of four. The park is quite small as... More
