We have been coming to Jungle Island since it was Parrot Jungle Island. They never disappoint as they are always adding new attractions to appeal to a wide range of guests. The enjoyment does come at a price though...and it ain't cheap!! We did not mind the steep cost as it was a vacation and we had a great time. But they really need to "cool it" with the aggressive photo ops right when you walk in. This can be very off putting!! It is a lot for people to absorb right after they have just paid a fortune to walk through the turnstyle. And once through the turnstyle, you and your kids are ushered into a photo with some adorable animals. Once your kids see those photos you are suckered into having to buy them...not a great way to end a lovely day with the family. You are not allowed to use your own camera and they "police" it in a very controlling and uncomfortable way.
All this being said, it is a wonderful place and it is rare that someone cannot have a great time here! So much beauty to behold and so many smiling happy faces all around. The shows never disappoint and are run very well. The animals all look very well cared for and the place is very clean and well laid out.
If you are in Miami with your kids you really should make a trip to Jungle Island. Be prepared to pay a lot but it can be a beautiful day spent with the family!
