“Lemur Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

I visited Jungle island in January and cannot say enough great things about the Lemur experience! The lemur trainer was very friendly and informative. Since there was no appointment after us, she extended our time with the lemurs to almost an hour! It was worth every dollar! You are able to get the lemur package w.o buying a zoo package. I advise you do so.

“birds great, price no”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

loved the birds, but the pricing is high $35 per person + tax and parking and they push you to buy the photos which can be another $20 plus per crack. From talking with some of the staff there, most of the shows are for young children, there was only 1 show they felt worked for adults. For a young family they will enjoy it, but you have to spend for pictures.

“Lots of fun and educational too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We took two of our grandchildren, ages 4 and 6, to Jungle Island for the VIP tour. We had a wonderful day. Our guide, Shanika was exceptional. But everyone we encountered at Jungle Island was helpful and friendly. We had up close encounters with tortoises, a rock iguana, a kinkajou, kangaroos and a capuchin monkey. In addition we got VIP treatment at the bird show and got to participate in the show. After the show, we had a private encounter with a condor. After a leisurely lunch (which was included in the VIP tour) we went to a training demonstration at the Orangutan exhibit and again Shanika was there to facilitate our interaction with the very knowledgable keeper, as they were working with the orangutans. Note that Jungle Island had kindly donated the VIP tour to a charity and we purchased it a charity event. We will definitely recommend visiting Jungle Island to our friends and family and will be going back again soon.

“An unbelievable Lemur experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

Brought my family over for the lemur encounter for
My daughters birthday. It was more than we could have hoped for. What an experience. I cannot say enough about our new lemur friends and the great staff throughout the park.

“not as great as it was a few year ago”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

1. Serpentarium
At the final of the show there was a big boa, that was hold by at least 20 people. now its not part of the show.

2. next to the serpentarium there were staff that handed out to you scorpion, snakes, zorrillos, etc etc, now they arent there anymore.

3. the lions shows, they only shows the baby tiger and lions. few years back they showed the white lion (big one).
4. parking is $8

the good.:
the best of all was the parrot show, beautiful and funny. new guy: there was a bird that looked like a dinosaur that is new.

there are new lions and tigers.

Was cheap at least for me as i bought some tickets on ebay/craiglist 3 adults and 2 child for $35 all . ticket in park is adult $34 and child $23 plux tax EACH!. do the math!

bottom line: my second time here and wont go back.
TIP: when you enter they take you pictures, which each are $20 (robbery!!) but you can also buy a CD for $60 (still expensive but if you go with friends you can take all the pictures and divide the $60 in 2 or 3) so if you go with friends take as many pictures (group, couples, individuals) as you can and at the end buy the CD. you wont regret and will thank me this!
