In addition to animal shows and exhibitions, the park also provides visitors with opportunities for live animal encounters at its petting zoo. A few of the zoo's most popular attractions are its Parrot Bowl, which hosts the Winged Wonders bird show, and a 408 kg (400 lb) liger (combination lion and tiger).

  • I love nature so any attraction that takes me outdoors is usually a win. This destination seems to be a work in progress, some attractions being added, some under construction, some not yet opened...  more »
  • Well worth the price of admission. The experience with the sloths was educational and hands-on meeting with the sloths was unforgettable. The sloths names were Flash and Rico. The trainer was very personal and made the whole experience worth the price. I would easily pay to go back again. The whole zoo was a nice atmosphere, the wild animals are free and majority of the animals weren't caged (which was a nice change than a traditional zoo). The experience with the lemurs looks really fun and would love to experience that too. I would love to go back. Thanks to the whole crew at Jungle Island for a great time!
  • Beautiful park! Unfortunately it's under construction right now so not all of the amenities are available to see. But they are making some great improvements to the park. Will definitely be a place to visit again after the overhaul.
