    This is only pertaining to Terror on the Jungle 2014.The line takes forever and it’s over in 20 minutes. I can’t understand why they make you take a picture even if you don’t want to. What’s the point? In the end, there are just going to throw it away if the customer doesn’t take it. On the lighter side, you can go in as many times as you want. The zombies didn’t want anything to do with me after the third time. Parking is $10 flat rate. For $50, it’s definitely over priced. House of horrors is better and half the price. You have to consider that it’s close to the beach.

    First of all I don’t know why people keep comparing this place to Metro Zoo. This is not an accredited zoo. It is a private collection handled for the sole purpose of collecting your money. Do your research people. Ok, everyone knows this place is a total ripoff. The people at the front desk try to up-sell you to multiple different confusing “animal encounter” packages. They seemed super flustered and overwhelmed by the whopping three people in the lobby.The park itself is well maintained and beautiful, but that’s about all there is to it.We were immediately off-put by many of the small enclosures. The baboons looked pretty stressed out and just neurotically paced their platform. No toys/enrichment of any kind present.The perched parrots throughout the paths of the park seem content, although many of them were quite unfriendly. Added a nice touch to the trails. However, when walking through the numerous parrot/bird cages things got really sad.Some of the birds looked sick. Like really sick. Crusty eyes/nares and some of them even had poop/diarrhea on their own tail feathers. Just seemingly unhealthy birds. These birds were all kept in open air cages way too close to each other.Many enclosures didn’t have any type of signage. Just a cage with a poor solitary bird. No breed recognition, no fun facts, no information at all. Some of them were straight up aggressive and would try to bite through the cage wires and there wasn’t even a warning sign!!What’s worse, some birds had signs that said not to feed them since they’re on special diets. One foot to the right is a feed dispenser with the regular kibble. Come on, of course someone is going to feed that bird. It’s confusing and not fair to the animal.The most upsetting part of the whole experience is the fact that most of these birds are highly intelligent species and they are alone in their cage with nothing more than a bowl of sewage colored water and bird kibble. Two perches, not a single toy. No enrichment of any kind – no varied diets between any of the species. They seem to all be treated like items on a shelf, without any actual care for them as individuals. Some of the cockatoos displayed neurotic behaviors, some even had poor feathering from plucking their own feathers out. Heartbreaking.The primates look bored, as do the big cats. Pretty small enclosures throughout. The white lion “den” was beyond pathetic. Those cats must be dying of boredom. It’s quite clear this place is nothing more than a tourist trap that’s most certainly losing money and struggling to stay afloat. All at the expense of the poor animals. There’s a lot of wasted space throughout the park and not a lot of diversity among the collection.This place needs new ownership, or they should just cut their losses and place the animals in their collection into real zoos or sanctuaries. Not this money making FAILURE.

    If you are BLACK OR DO NOT SPEAK SPANISH and if you want to have a great day, Jungle Island is the place to STAY AWAY from. First of all, when shows need volunteers, they call on white kids. I’ve seen this on only one show. But it’s not that conspicuous as compared to what we had with food. We ordered a cheeseburger with chips, soda, ice cream, and a bottle of water. We even gave the lady a tip right away (!). Of course, we got the sides and had to wait for the cheeseburger. We were the only ones there. Neither of us speak Spanish, as I am Russian and My husband is American-Haitian. We went to sit down at the table thinking we will come up in about 7 minutes to get the food. 2-3 minutes after a party of 6 people came up and ordered food. They spoke Spanish. Then another party of 3 people came up to the counter to order the food. Somehow the party of 6 got one burger out right away. I felt suspicious. Then they received the rest of their order: 2 hot dogs, 1 burger, and 2 cheeseburgers. The party of 3 received their hot fog an a burger as well. Our cheeseburger was not anywhere to be seen. The lady apologized to the party of 6 that their food was taking long. Once it was ready, she actually called them. Not only we got served LAST, but OUR FOOD WAS GIVEN AWAY. Why? This is the question to be answered. Is it because we are not Hispanic? Is is because we are a mixed family? Is is because we do not speak Spanish? Is because based on this we are a “second-hand” sort of people who do not need to be served? When I confronted the lady, she said she “got confused”. Huh? Lady, we were the only customers there when we came up for at least 3 minutes. Our burger was lonely on the grill. And when I asked her to speak the the manager, he or she was conveniently “in a meeting”. After that our visit was ruined. I do not think I will come back, even though we have an annual passes. It’s not worth it. There are other places I can visit that are less racist, more professional, and more friendly. I wanna go home happy, not with a bitter feeling.I gave it 2 stars only because Guest Service Manager actually seemed to feel sorry for what happened, although it is not her fault. She gave us a complementary parking. Thank you.We live in 21st century, and RACISM HAS TO STOP.

    I booked the VIP tour 2 days prior and it was amazing! Our guide (Ryan Jacobs) was so much fun and had lots of funny stories. We hung out with lemurs for 30 minutes and then went around the park touching animals as we walked. Birds, HUGE tortoises, a snake, a baby monkey, and other fun things too. The VIP tour is a little pricy, but we loved it. If (when) we go again I think we will just do the lemur experience.
