Clean facilities, helpful and courteous staff. Airboat was great. Fun day! Traffic to park was zilcho!
The park staff was fun, and very knowledgeable about everything and they were there to answer our questions and help us with any needs we had and the cleanliness of the park was amazing very good time and will recommend friends and family to visit and we will also be returning every vacation
Better than my family and I expected.
Beautiful experience!! The sloths were precious!
Briiliant place lots to see and staff are lovely
We were very good taking care of. Great airboat trip, great guide, everything just fitted.
I took my wife and 18 month old to this park to experience a piece of Florida's wildlife, and we left completely satisfied.. instead of throwing a bunch of animals in enclosures slap in in the middle of a city surrounded by concrete, these guys built it around an actual wild setting. Animals were great, staff was friendly, and scenery was great. Especially enjoyed taking pics with gator and walking through the swamp area. Real nature feel.
Everything is well organized
Lovely couple of hours wandering round looking at the various animals. Nice clean Park. Plenty of opportunities to touch/meet animals up close
I visited with my mum and dad, husband and children from England and we all had a great time. The swamp buggy ride was interesting and the wildlife park was really nice. We had a close up encounter with one of the beautiful sloths, and watched the alligators feeding. Fantastic value for money.
Away from the typical tourist destinations, fantastic setting, getting up close to the animals.
Wild Florida was amazing. We loved how well cared for the animals and grounds were. Our Sloth encounter was the best! The caretaker was very informative and we were given lots of time to interact and take pictures. We had an excellent time at the park!
Very helpful staff. Front counter staff made sure everyone made their encounters on time. The animal encounter staff were friendly and informative. The animals were amazing.
We did the Lemur encounter and it was amazing. The rest of the park was really fun too. It was almost like we had the park to ourselve which was great
You made daughters dream come true with your sloth encounter.
Excellent place to spend the day with the family. The airboats are so fun.
I went with my wife and friend. We has a blast. All the employee there were very nice and outgoing. Any questions we had, they could answer. All in all, we had great time.
OMG, loved it, loved it, loved it. gorgeous grounds. beautiful animals. and cried during the sloth animal encounter. <3
This place was clean, relaxing, interesting and seems to be run well. We walked the park and really enjoyed sitting on the benches to watch the animals. We also booked a sloth encounter and a ring tailed lemur encounter. What an incredible experience it was. In and around Orlando it seems that your money evaporates at every turn, but this park was different. We didn't ride the airboats, but having grown up in South Florida I can say that they looked nice. Many airboat tours are held on huge school bus like airbarges that are slow and uninteresting. The airboats here seemed normal sized with a couple of extra seats. That's awesome because you are still riding a nimble and exciting airboat. We really had a great time and the guides who handled our encounters probably had more to do with that than anyone else. We will be back again.
What a fantastic day we had. Aside from walking around the wonderful park we also met the sloths something I have always wanted to do and I was not disappointed. Again thank you do much for a wonderful day and brilliant experience.
I felt for the size of the place it was very expensive for 6 tickets, when Florida residents pay half of what I paid.
The park was fun but the animal encounter was a disapointment. Very expensive for what it was. Also, the alligator exhibit was cruel. Too many alligators together, no place for them to protect themselves. One alligator was just attacted, missing an extremity, wound infected. We advised the staff, but they did nothing.
The wild Park have the perfect size for a nice day of visit, not so big and not so small. Your airboat tour is so amazing and I fell its obligatory for a perfect experience in the park. I really enjoyed with my family. Thanks from Brazil, Rio de Janeiro.
We went on a rainy day, our last day of vacation, as a spur of the moment decision, because we saw the sloth encounters. So the family braved the rain, so I could get an opportunity to get up close to my favorite animal. The kids were unphased by the rain and had a great time seeing all the animals, and getting to pet some. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The layout was great, and the prices for encounters, gifts, and photos were very reasonable. We have already decided that on our next vacation to Florida, we will be visiting again, and taking an airboat ride too.
Our guide, Brandon, on the Ranch Buggy tour knew so much about the Florida cattle industry and answered all of our questions. He was very friendly and helpful. The wildlife park was far better than we expected and had animals rarely seen in any zoo or wildlife park. I had made a mistake during online booking which resulted in an over-payment, and when we got home a credit had already been issued to my credit card account. Next time we will do the airboat ride. All in all, a very enjoyable day at a place appropriately advertised as "The Middle of Nowhere."
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time. The wildlife park was clean and the employees were all delightful. The animals appeared to be well-maintained and treated and were all incredibly friendly. We loved our experience with Ana the sloth and her baby George, which was the reason we chose to visit Wild Florida for the day. The bird enclosure (specifically my new friend Princess), the white-tailed deer habitat (one of the fawns was so cute and friendly!), and the chatty foxes were all fantastic as well. Heck, the entire park was great. We plan to visit again when we are in the area and we hope the park remains opened for a long time. Both my girlfriend and I agreed that Wild Florida is the best wildlife park that we have visited not only in Orlando, not only in the state of Florida, but in the entire country (Arizona, New York, California, and elsewhere). Keep up the excellent work!
we had a blast. The kids loved all the animals and the air boat ride. Staff were also very friendly.
From the second we got there, everyone was super nice & helpful. The experience was exactly as described, and my friend loved the sloth encounter. Hat tip to Dalton & Chris for answering a million questions and making us feel super welcome.
We were really glad to see the animals so well taken care of .. we especially enjoyed feeding the birds in the aviary and having an up close visit with a sloth! ..
Amazing experience for a GREAT price!!!!!
