“Great for the whole family!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I went last Sunday, total of 5 adults and 6 children from 8 months all the way to 15 y.o. The place is suitable for everyone...... my 8 month old loved the show with the birds specially with some of the most uncommon species.... and yes some of the animals you will see are not your typical backyard selection..... there are baby tigers, full grown liones ligers (mix Tiger and Lion) in one of the exhibits I got to see a common leopard sharen area with a Pantera (black Leopard....) awesome you are going to see all types of tropical birds......... it is a great place to spend a at lest half a day...... food is probably the worst ... your lowest level of amusement park eats.... at high prices..... so if you plan to have a decent meal.... leave the park. Overall a great family attraction

“jungle Island is a disappointment to me, being a resident of Miami.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Jungle Island is disappointing in the way the animals are displayed. I actually feel sorry for them. The Jungle is located on a beautiful piece of property. You will need a car to get to it.

Thank you for visiting Jungle Island and for sharing your experience. We wanted to take a moment to address your concern with the exhibits for our animals. All of the enclosures on Jungle Island not only meet but exceed the standards set forth by Florida Fish & Wildlife and the USDA. Jungle Island strives to provide the utmost in care for our animals that call the Jungle home. Animal care is our top priority and we receive numerous comments at how well our animals are cared for from various organizations. We do hope that you will choose to visit us again in the future.

“Fun Outing- But Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I feel that Jungle Island is very expensive for what is offered. The park is nice and the best part is that there is a lot of shade. We went in the summer and it didn't feel as bad as it could have. The shows are nice and my kids enjoyed it, but I don't think it's worth the $30+ to get in. It's not easy for a family of 4 to afford.

“A good activity for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a lovely, lush spot in which to spend a couple of hours with the family. Across the street(or highway) from the Miami Children's museum, it makes a nice day of activities for the family. They have a nice animal show and my grandkids and son-in-law loved getting photographed with a real tiger cub. It is a relaxing day.
