went with family for first time. not a ride person so mostly walked around the park and took in the sights. it was a pleasant day and the food in the park was pretty good. animal exhibits were interesting and fun. Saw the Iceploration show which was very good. better for families that like thrill rides.

we thought the cost was quite expensive,as we were 4 adults mainly wanting to do the safari tour,but you had to pay full price to get into the park & then extra to do the safari.We paid as we had driven there anyway,we went on 2 of the rides a wild 1 & a gentle 1.We took the cable cars around the park & then the little train which was excellent as it drove through the animals & they weren't fenced in.the night safari was great,we fed the Giraffes especially Cupid who was quite a cheeky Giraffe which was a great experience & I would recommend it & we were the only 4 on the truck so we had the space & full attention of the Giraffes

This park has everything from animals to great roller coasters. There is enough shade for the sunny/hot days. A must visit!

This place is good for three groups of people, thrill seekers, animal lovers and thrill seeking animal lovers. The only thing I can complain about with this place is that it doesn't have any middle of the road attractions. Everything is either too much or too little while Disney has a little slice of the pie for everyone. The animal exhibits here are amazing and to incorporate that into a theme park was sheer brilliance. If you've come to the Tampa area just for the beach, this is a nice change of pace to get your heart rate up a little.

Hadn't been recently (since 2010) but came down this April and were stunned at all that has changed. Cheetah Hunt coaster is by far well worth whatever the wait is and so are all the other coasters (my favorite will always be Sheikra), Lots of new wildlife and fauna for you to enjoy. Be sure to take advantage of train and sit down spots (i.e. the Gorilla exhibit or Tiger overlook) to rest at.
