Took my girlfriend to wild Florida tours to experience the sloth tour. It made her so happy and the staff was very freindly. Also Park was very clean and well maintained. Will visit again soon!
Amazing interaction with the animals, guides knowledge, care and enthusiasm for the love of the animals was so sincere and uplifting x
It was a very enjoyable encounter and I didn't feel rushed and that I could enjoy being with the animal.
I took my daughter for the Sloth encounter... sloths have been her favorite animal for years... the keeper that did the encounter with us was super informative and great with the animals. All the staff we encountered were friendly. The only suggestion I have is for Wild Florida to provide recycling options for the bottled products that are sold and discarded there... i honestlyfound it odd that a place celebrating nature wouldn't be green... aside from that i thought the place was great!
My family and I enjoyed our time during our sloth encounter very much. The young lady assisting us was extremely knowledgeable and very receptive to all our questions. She was also very good with my daughter making sure she was having a good experience with one of her favorite animals. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone.
The sloth encounter was a wonderful experience. The sloth handler named Kayla was knowledgeable, patient, kind, and took some beautiful photos of my daughter interacting with the sloth with my phone since I was outside of the cage during the experience. The sloth was named Guy and he was friendly and interested in spending time with the humans as well as interested in enjoying his treats. We will definitely be back to do this again and it is 100% worth the money and the drive to get to Wild Florida. It’s central Florida’s hidden gem for sure!
Would've loved to hold her! I understand why that's not always possible.
The sloth encounter was worth the drive and the money for such a fun experience. Also loved that it gave you direct access to the rest of the park as well.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Easy to book online. Good selection in gift shop. Most importantly, the cutest little sloths in the whole wide world. Slooths are cool, man !!
Daughter & son loved meeting Guy but would have loved more time with him & a chance to have a one-one meeting rather than in a group
Annalee loved being able to pet the sloth, take photos with the sloth and learn about their habits.
It was awesome. Great experience and we got some great pics. The whole park is a great experience and much bigger than expected
i had a blast with chloe. she was so sweet. i learned some facts i didnt know about sloths.
Great encounter Thank you for such a clean facility. Love seeing animals being taken care of.
The sloth experience was fabulous 😁

The encounter was amazing and the gator park as well. It looks well kept as do the animals. Will definitely go again and do the airboat ride.
We were so impressed not only with the quality of the facility and animal encounters, but also with the friendly and knowledgeable staff, from the folks checking us in to the trainers leading the shows. Definitely buy the bird feeding sticks - we had a blast with parrots sitting on our arms and shoulders in the aviary! Well worth both the price and the drive.
we loved it. We would really like to be able to hold them but we understand why you can't. Great experience!
It’s a great value for the experience received and the amount of time we were able to spend with the sloths.
We had a great time at the park and especially enjoyed our sloth experience. It was very hot, which is to be expected, but it would have been nice if there were more fans or misters to keep guests cool.
It was a wonderful experience ! Can't wait to see the Lemurs up close next time.
My husband had the best time in the sloth encounter! Your park is very well kept & you have a very friendly staff.
Excellent service and what a great experience. Always clean, definitely coming back soon . Sloth encounter was amazing.
We loved our whole day at Wild Florida and had an amazing sloth encounter. This is a special place with tons of animal interaction. I was there with my 13 year old daughter and she was only on her phone to take pictures with the animals.
The handler was very kind and informative and did a great job of getting everyone engaged with the sloth. My daughter is the one from our group who got to do this while we were there and she absolutely loved it!
We had a fantastic time. The animals were so well taken care of and the staff was so nice. Thank you for a great day
My 14 year old son thought it was epic! The close up encounter was awesome. Next best thing would be to hold one! He would definitely do this again!
A lovely, informative session & a great opportunity to get up close to a sloth
We were looking for something fun to do on our last day in Florida. I found Wild Florida while exploring on the internet and it looked fun...then I saw you had sloth encounters! How on Earth could I possibly pass up this opportunity? The sloth encounter was everything I imagined and MORE! Our host was knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts about sloths. She also told us about the different sloths at Wild Florida and a little about their personalities. We have some great photos of the experience (my friends back home are massively jealous...but I am pretty sure one of my friends is now making plans to being her family to Wild Florida). I would do this again in a heartbeat!
Fantastic day at the park, had an amazing hour long airboat ride and the sloth encounter was magical. Wild Florida is very different from the last time we visited about 18 years ago, but completely for the better. Certainly won't be leaving it another 18 years before we visit. Amazing place with amazing staff.
Nice small but interesting zoo! I do wish the boat rides were more affordable.
The sloth experience was great! Guide was informative and made sure we had plenty of time to take photos! She also made sure the sloths were comfortable, and never forced them to do anything which was important to us. Thanks for helping me provide a great birthday present!
Experience was awesome. Employee was very knowledgeable and we had time to interact with the sloth which was great! Highly recommend and I would do it again! Loved it!!!
This was a very satisfying experience. Sloths are my daughter's favorite animal and, although she has visited Wild Florida before and seen the sloths, she has never had an up close experience with one. This was her birthday and I just knew it would be one she would not forget if she was able to actually interact with an actual sloth. It did not disappoint. She was delighted and very appreciative. There were four in out party and we all enjoyed our sloth encounter very much. Thank you, Wild Florida!
Personal. Fun. Exciting for all ages
Worth the drive! Such an amazing experience. I definitely recommend!
Loved the natural environment the animals are kept in! Meeting Guy the Sloth was on my bucket list!!
This was a surprise for a friend. And she loved it.
Excellent experience. Very friendly & informative guide!
It was very informative and the lady who did our visit was very nice and very knowledgeable a great experience
