“A geat surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel conciergeto kill some time before we could check in, and it was a great surprise. We arrived just as it opened, so we had the park to ourselves for the hour or so. We walked around, fed the parrots and paid $5 extra to hand feed the kangaroos (which was my children's favorite part of the day). We timed it so that we could see all the shows and really enjoyed them. Some of the delivery of the information was a bit corny, but the animals themselves were really cool to see. This was a great place to visit for about 3 hours, and we would certainly go again!

“Blew me away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

I've been to Jungle Island many times, but for whatever reason, this past summer the park completely blew me away. It was awesome. Me and my friend touched and fed more different species of animals than I can count on one hand. Parrots, gators, snakes, monkeys, and flamingos are the ones I can remember. If you are a Florida resident and your child makes the winners circle for good grades (the little cardboard paper they hand out at the end of the year with the coupons), this place is really, really affordable.

“Jungle Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

My daughter is only 17 months old she loves animals. As a family we had an amazing time. She was able to feed and pet Kangaroos, baby goats, feed birds and other animals. She loved and sat through the shows which is amazing for her. We took a VIP tour that really catered to her and her favorite animals. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. I liked that the majority of the park was covered. This was the most interactive place we have ever been too. It is great for all ages. We bought annual passes so we can go back again.

“Awesome experience, but use your GO Miami Cards!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

My husband and I stopped at Jungle Island right when they opened on a Saturday because they were part of the Go Miami card program. We had a great time and at 10am when they opened it wasn't too hot yet. The animals are surprisingly close. When we watched the lions eating they were right there on the other side of some plexiglass. They also have a cute little wading beach at the back of the park with some playground equipment.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

A lot of great animals!
The price is good and the shows are awesome.
Just be prepared to bring some food with you, because the food is not so good there.
Just some pretzels and ice cream!
Perfect to go with the family!
