Where are we going today?

Are you excited to have a WILD family day out in Miami? If you want to spend your day out with your family AND some pretty incredible creatures, head to Jungle Island - it's WILD!

Jungle Island has a number of exhibits that not only teach kids about these amazing animals, they can see them up close, and some exhibits even give kids a fun, hands on experience too!

Let's explore!

How about we start with the Many Encounter, where kids can have an interactive experience with Squirrel Monkeys, and free flying parrots and even macaws!

The beautiful nature of the Orangutan's can be seen in the Orangutan School, where kids can witness how smart these animals really are!

There are kangaroos waiting to interact with the whole family, and even have a cuddle! If you're lucky you might see how high they can really bounce!

And let's not forget about that adorable petting barn, which really gives you some wonderful photo opportunities as the kids get to pat and feed the domestic animals!

And what better way to end the day than at Parrot Cove! Here, you can find Miami's ONLY private beach, and with amazing views of Biscayne Bay, its where kids can just enjoy the sun, wade into the bay for a splash, and best of all - it's FREE with admission!

With a chance to explore the everglades too, Jungle Island really is a fun day out for those animal loving families!

    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...Read More

    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...Read More

    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.

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.
