Great exhibits, friendly staff, reasonable price
I loved the sloth and the air boat amazing time
Great, friendly staff. The 40 min airboat ride was great fun and informative, not just blasting around. Sloth experience for my wife was excellent, helped because it was relatively quiet ( 2 people on the booking).
We loved meeting Guy the sloth. He and his companions seemed to be well cared for, and our guide for the encounter was informative and friendly.
I had a great experience
Everything could not have been more perfect! The love and care of your animals is so evident. It was a pleasure just walking around the park. The restaurant was A plus, excellent food and value. The sloth visitation was so well done. The sloths were allowed to come out when and if they wanted to. There was no pressure on the animals just some treats if they chose to show their adorable faces. Everyone got to take ample photos. It was so unDisney like thankfully. I could have spent more time and will be visiting again very shortly!!!
Awesome animal park! My son loved the sloth encounter!!!
A wonderful experience
Really got up close. Were unhurried and the keeper was nice
Staff was personable but professional. Knowledgeable! The animals looked health. Wasn’t over crowded which was great! Oh and the food was delicious!!
The girl Kaitlin who took our sloth encounter was great! She was super friendly, helpful, answered all the questions she was asked and ensured we all got enough pictures and time with Guy. Kaitlin was very knowledable and just really friendly overall. Thanks again! :)

It was so wonderful to watch my granddaughter as she had her sloth experience!she has loved sloths since birth and her getting to meet and pet one was a dream come true! Thank you for not only providing this wonderful experience but for also taking such good care of all of the animals!
The sloth encounter was a great experience! The employee who assisted was very knowledgeable and excited to share with us.
I took my gf for birthday cause she loves sloths, it was more than we bargained for, we got a bonus zoo visit to our surprise! the animals were well taken care of, the trainers/keepers were very knowledgeable; it was well worth the price and drive, thank you!
My boyfriend loves sloths and it made his day to just be near one and even pet it. Our animal guide person was very informative and friendly
We had an amazing time at Wild Florida and did both the sloth and porcupine encounters. The encounter hosts were fantastic and we made unforgettable memories plus got lots of awesome photos. Highly recommend taking a day trip here.
Excellent encounter with your sloths, friendly and informative staff, fabulous birthday gift, would highly recommend
Great price and amount of time spent with sloth got more then was expecting too. Very happy with wild florida as a park and for animal experience
The daughter loved the sloth selfie educationally slot on no rush plenty of time for pictures with bookings kept to 8 people.
For the price of the encounter i didnt think it was worth it we didnt get to feed or hold the sloth we only got to pet his head and take pictures the experiance would have been much more enjoyable for the price paid if we got to hold and feed thr sloth
The place was not what I expected at all! Well worth the price. Wasn’t expecting to get a zoo trip in with the sloth experience.
Wild Florida was a lot fun! The staff was great. The place was clean. We enjoyed seeing all the animals but especially were excited to see and meet the sloths. The encounter was a very good experience!
My kids and I loved the sloth encounter!!! The keeper was very knowledgeable. I felt like we had a lot of time to get up close and personal with Guy the sloth, who was adorable! A great experience!!!
Very interactive. My kids had an amazing experience!
Had an amazing time (despite the weather) with the sloths. We wanted to take him home :) We weren't rushed & got lots of photos. Great value for money & the gift shop was reasonably priced too.
This was the reason we came to Wild Florida. Our daughters are HUGE Sloth lovers. Unfortunately Guy, the Sloth, wasn’t in the mood for being sociable. We all got to pet him and again, thanks to Megan the totally wonderful animal handler, take lots of photos with him, it was a bit disappointing not to be able to interact with him more. However, we were in his habitat and he was sleeping, so to be able to get close enough to him to allow us to pet him was pretty special. Megan was full of Sloth facts and was such a lovely person. She made us feel very special.
Loved the sloth encounter. Would have stayed longer if we had time.
Amazing experience. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
We loved every minute of this experience. Aerie is so sweet and adorable. The staff was very accommodating and let us take tons of slothies from every angle.
We were so happy with our visit. My daughter loves sloths and the Encounter with Sloths twas short at 15 minutes, but it actually was perfect. That allowed plenty of time for pictures and 1 on 1 time. There were so many other great things to see like feeding time for alligators and horses and zebras combined as one, peacocks roaming around etc. It was very clean and the workers were great. I ran out of gas for my rental car and the workers went out of their way to help me. A great value for a wonderful afternoon with our daughter. I would highly recommend it, great outing for the family with ice cream, a gift store and only about a 30 minute drive from Orlando.
The Sloth encounter was important to my oldest daughter (who is 20), and she enjoyed the experience very much! When I bought the tickets on line, it was initially not clear from your web page that the price also included admission to the rest of your park, which is also fabulous. I learned this only by reading another review that mentioned it. If anyone reading this is visiting Florida and enjoys animals in nature, then I strongly suggest that you go to Wild Florida and spend some time enjoying the many animals they have to see. I'd also recommend taking the 1-hour air boat ride, which for me will likely be a once in a lifetime experience. It was thrilling, and I even leaned a thing or two about the everglades. Wild Florida has an aviary that is really fun, zebras, deer and of course alligators. I would describe the place as authentic and laid back. The staff including the air boat captain, the animal handlers, the young lady directing the Sloth encounter and the folks in the gift store were all very kind and welcoming. Thank-you! There were 5 people in our party, and we all enjoyed Wild Florida MORE than Epcot Center. One word of advice. If you travel to Wild Florida, you will want to either purchase a Sun Pass for the Florida Turnpike or not take the turnpike at all. Our navigation system directed us to an exit off the turnpike that ONLY took the Sun Pass. We didn't have one, and IF we had gone through the exit the fine would have been $100! Ouch! A nice little revenue generator brought to you by the creeps at the Florida Turnpike Commission. I wonder if Disney put them up to it? In any event, we would definitely go to Wild Florida again if the opportunity arose!
What a fantastic relaxed time love it
Park was clean and well kept. Staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. The only down side is the price and quality of the food at the chomp house. The Philly steak and cheese was soggy and tasted like they dropped the whole salt shaker in it.
We loved your park! It wasn't over crowded or over priced. The sloth encounter is something I will always remember and always recommend!
I loved meeting arie!!!! She was so sweet
Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. While I wish the sloth encounter was a little longer, where else can you get to pet/feed a sloth? Exhibits were fun and clean, and will definitely be back!
It was a wonderful experience. The trainers were so nice and knowledgeable. They added to what was already great. The whole day was fantastic. Price was very reasonable for the fun that we all had.
Loved this experience, especially the slothie. Guide was very knowledgeable.
