“Not worth the money!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Entrance per adult 42 dollar and 8 dollar to park your car. We visited all the shows which where nice but that's all, the park is small and all the videos you can find on youtube are fake.... or...... you'll have to pay 240 dollar per person to get a private tour.... (NO WAY!) So my advise is, stay away and maybe visit a real zoo.

“Fun and A Little Weird”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Jungle Island is the newly reconstituted Parrot Jungle. It's a good spot for families. It is very clean and has interesting exhibits and displays and has become more of a zoo than one would imagine. They have tigers, penguins, and even a kangaroo petting zoo which was a new one on me. Their shows are good and a little wacky in a South Florida way. The one thing we didn't like was their "hustle" to charge $20 to ride an elephant, named Judy, around a small paddock. That seemed to be not so nice.

“Perfect day!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We just spent a beautiful April day at Jungle Island. The grounds are gorgeous, with waterfalls, palm trees & exotic plants there are so many great places for pictures. The parrots and birds, turtles, frogs, koi, flamingos, lions tigers and monkeys are everywhere. My kids had a ball feeding and talking to the parrots and birds. They also got to hold a parrot, a monkey and a crocodile! It cost $100 for 2 adults and 2 kids, there are coupons online for 20% off.

We spent the whole afternnon and still didn't see everything. There are shows feedings and demonstrations all day. The parrot show was both funny and interesting. There is so much to do, and plenty of animals and lush landscape to see as you walk around. Jungle Island was beautiful, the staff was friendly we look forward to going back soon!

“Jungle Island is beautiful but one of the shows are weak.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The big cat show was not interesting. It was more like being preached at for a half hour and the biggest animal was a wolf.
