I first went to "Parrot Jungle" when it was still in its original state. I remember loving it as a child. Upon returning to Jungle Island, I am not as impressed but still enjoyed it for the $10 I paid on "Nabor Day" [a.k.a. Labor Day Weekend]. Jungle Island has a lot of beautiful and unique animals. It's small compared to the Miami Zoo but I think it's a good size. I liked that the walkways are mainly sheltered, so the hot summer sun isn't constantly beating down on you. However, some fans along the walkway ceilings would be nice [*hint hint*]. The shows we saw were average, displaying the beauty of the animals rather briefly and stating some facts on the animals. The negatives that really withdraw from Jung...

I avoided this place for several years based on the "annual pass" admission price and the over abundance of animals located inside. But, my daughter loves animals and I love her, so when the $10 Labor Day deal came around I opened up. I have to say that considering the deal on the holiday weekend that they handled the logistics well. While waiting in line for one of the multiple ticket booths employees, were handing out maps, discussing the park and explaining how you could upgrade the discounted tickets. The facility is nice, the shows are entertaining and the staff is very friendly. One chivalrous gentleman brought over a chair while my wife was changing our little girl into her bathing suit in the Playa a...

I wanted to give it 3 1/2 stars so I opted for 4 instead. Been here about twice now with the family. It's a nice place to take my son. He loves the birds and it completely drains him which is good for us. The entrance price is a bit steep, but they promotions most of the time. We got annual passes for the price of a one day pass. The staff are friendly, the place is kept in great conditions. The shows are ok, the park is small, parking is $8 but with annual pass it's $6. Everything in the gift shop is expensive (over priced). The photos with the animals are a bit expensive. In other words prepare to pay $$$. We haven't tried the food here cause we always come right after breakfast so we don't spend money on ...

If you live in the area and have a Florida ID, Jungle island is really a great deal. For the past two years we have been able to buy an annual pass for the price of a one day pass ($32). The current promotion ends March 31st, but they constantly run promotions throughout the year. Jungle island is pretty much a small zoo, but the property is well maintained, with plenty of shaded walkways that offer a nice leisurely walk of the grounds even in the heat of summer. The variety of animals is definitely not bad - they have a Liger, tigers, kangaroos, camels, lemurs, monkeys, etc in addition to the parrots. There is also a petting zoo with farm animals and a large playground - pretty much a perfect place to take ...

Make your day at Jungle Island completely fantastic by doing one of the animal encounters. We did the Lemur Experience and it was a riot. One of my boys loves animals, the other - not so much. And of course, the lemurs wanted to climb all over the child who resisted! Hilarious. The experience is 45 minutes long and you'll learn about them first, then they open the gates and the lemurs dash onto your lap (you're seated in a chair) and then you feed them grapes. They are super cute but they do like to 'leave their scent' on you. If you're an animal lover, you won't care if you smell a little like a lemur. It was worth it. Feeding the lorikeets is another definite highlight. It happens twice each afternoon and ...

What a total disappointment. I was expecting an "Animal Kingdom" type of experience, and that was far from what i got. It's not as big as they make it out to be. The price for admission is ridiculously outrageous, about $32 per person and $26 for kids. Not to mention the $8 parking fee that they charge when the parking lot is less than 4 feet from the entrance. That's insanity! This isn't a Disney park, it's a tiny zoo, and you could pretty much see the whole thing in three to four hours or less. The cafeteria/only place to grab a bite is old and completely outdated. The only food options I saw were burgers, pizza, and chicken fingers. It was also closed when I came. The parrots were adorable though, and fee...

The price isn't the greatest, but you can usually find discount coupons somewhere. As soon as you enter the park, there are a few crews with parrots, colorful birds, bunnies, and a BABY ALLIGATOR that you can hold for taking Kodak photos.  This is another way Jungle Island makes money. I wanted to hold the parrots, bunnies, and baby alligator to see how they feel like and didn't bother looking or purchasing the photos.. although it may be interesting to keep and tell friends about.  Kids love to take and buy these photos.  Oh yeah, the baby alligator feels very leathery like and cool to the touch.  He's a good 10-15 lbs and kinda.. cute. The main attraction here is the massive ligers.  They are impressive an...

Jungle Island is beautiful, but they lost a star due to their admission price. It's about $5-10 more than it really should be. It's a great place to take kids, since it isn't as big as Zoo Miami. My husband and I went about a year ago...

Took advantage of my corporate discount and got a pair of tickets to here.  I came today with my bf to check it out.  He asked me why of all the times I've been here why would I pick a hot and humid June day to come here....I figured I might not have time later this year since I have a packed year ahead of me.  We only ended up staying almost 2 hours since we couldn't tolerate the humidity and heat. This little "zoo" sits on the Biscayne Bay so we get a little breeze of air here and there.  They have many beautiful parrots here of all colors and size.  They're there for you to feed without being caged or anything.   They also have lemurs, ginormous tortoises, llamas, tigers, ligers (yep, the biggest cat in t...
